Description

Includes Command Rifle team, two Type 1 47mm anti-tank guns, with eight crew figures, two Medium four-hole bases, one Small three-hole base and one base plug sprue.

It was designed to be operated from a kneeling or prone position, with a low profile and a gun shield to protect the crew. With AP shells it could penetrate the front armor of the M4 Sherman at 800 yards, though standard doctrine was to wait until tanks got closer if possible to ensure good shot placement.
