The JGSDF Type 73 heavy tank transporter, also called the "Type 73 Semi Trailer," is a 3-axis MBT transportation trailer assigned to five active armies and logistic support regiments of the JGSDF. The maximum loading capacity is 40t, and the maximum road speed is 60km/h, with a characteristic high profile for rough terrain. This vehicle is mainly used for transporting Type 74 and Type 10 tanks, and can only be seen at night time due to the Vehicle Restriction Law.
This model kit recreates the engine and frame of the tractor, and even the underside of the semi trailer chassis authentically based on the intense study of the real vehicle. The landing gears are supplied with two sets, in folded and extended positions, which can be replaced even after assembly.
