Description

Tamiya: 1/35 JGSDF Type 16 MCV – Scale Model

This scale model assembly kit recreates the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF) Type 16, which reached units beginning in 2017. An 8-wheel vehicle, the JGSDF classify it as a Maneuver Combat Vehicle (MCV), a highly mobile and well-armed vehicle intended to provide supporting fire and take on enemy armour as a part of rapid response units. Its domestically designed L/52 105mm rifled gun is a low-recoil piece with perforated muzzle brake and a fire control system to enable accurate firing on the move. Rolled steel turret and hull employ modular and spaced armour estimated to be able to survive frontal hits from 20–30mm class guns and portable anti-tank weapons. Thanks to its 570hp engine, the 26-ton Type 16 has a top speed of around 100km/h and significant range; it looks set to provide a major boost to JGSDF units as its rollout continues.

Additional Details:

  • 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 241mm.
  • Refined, angular surfaces have an uncomplicated parts breakdown without sacrificing detail.
  • Realistically rendered underside features steerable front wheel pairs.
  • Clear parts are used to recreate light lenses and periscope components, plus goggles.
  • Rubber tires feature authentic sidewall shapes and tread patterns.
  • Comes with 2 figures (one commander and one gunner) for installation in the model.
  • 3 decal marking options.
