Type-97 Chi-Ha

The Type 97 "Chi-Ha" (Japanese: 九七式中戦車 チハ Kyunana-shiki chu-sensha chiha) was a medium tank used by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. It was the most widely produced Japanese medium tank of the period, but with thin armor, relatively small main armament and underpowered engine, it was less effective than most Allied tank designs such as the M4 Sherman.

In Battlefield 1942, the Chi-ha is the Japanese standard tank. It spawns regularly at certain IJN-controlled flags. It is equipped with a coaxial machine gun for anti-infantry purposes and main cannon for armoured targets. The main cannon's projectile creates a noticeable arc for longer ranges. Another player can take the role as the tank commander and will have an MG42 as their main armament.

In Battlefield Vietnam's WWII mod, the Chi-ha is the Imperial Japanese Army's standard tank. It is nearly identical in performance and appearance to its Battlefield 1942 counterpart.

Battlefield 1943Edit

BF1943 CHI-HA

The Type 97 Chi-Ha's model in Battlefield 1943

In Battlefield 1943, the Type 97 Chi-Ha is the IJN's standard tank. It spawns regularly at certain IJN-controlled flags. Its driver is equipped with a coaxial machine gun for anti-infantry purposes and a main cannon for armored targets. The main cannon's projectile creates a noticeable arc at longer ranges. Another player can take the role as the tank commander and have a heavy machine gun as their main armament. Players can ride on the back. This is very glitchy and complicated, but can be effective.

It is a direct equivalent to the USMC M4 Sherman.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit

BFBC2 Chi-Has

Two Type 97 Chi-Has in Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

The Type 97 Chi-Ha makes a very brief appearance in the opening mission of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Operation Aurora. When the player's squad hides in a field to avoid a Japanese convoy, Type 97's make up the armour element of it. A total of three can be seen rolling past, before American Vought F4U Corsairs attack the convoy, destroying the tanks. The Type 97 does not make any other appearance, apart from wreckage throughout the same level. The Type 97 Chi-Ha is never available to the player.
