Development Edit

The Type-24 is the modern equivalent of a battering ram. A siege tank designed for overwhelming enemy positions in close quarters combat. Its armament consists of a 120mm mortar, equipped with HE and Flechette Burst munitions, and a coaxial 12.7mm machine gun in the turret. While unfit for combat against armoured opponents, this armament makes the Type-24 a formidable weapon against enemy infantry and fortifications. With no real armour sloping to speak of, the chassis of the siege tank proved to be resilient against small arms but vulnerable to armour penetrating weapons. Therefore armoured skirts were later added to the sides of the chassis, as well as the back of the turret. The Type-24's role as an infantry vehicle ended when the Type-120entered service, but on rare occasions the Type-24 is still deployed as a siege weapon.

Characteristics Edit

Advantages Edit

  • Formidable armament against enemy fortifications, unarmoured vehicles and infantry

Disadvantages Edit

  • Subpar motor and poor weight distribution in the turret resulted in difficulty aiming the weapon while on the move
  • Wide chassis of the tank makes it hard to manoeuvre in an urban environment
