First combat use of the Type 97 anti-tank rifle

In May 1939, the only mass-produced Japanese anti-tank rifle, the Type 97, first saw combat during the Battles of Khalkhin Gol.

The design of the new anti-tank rifle proposed by the Kokura Arsenal followed the solutions previously used in the Swiss 20mm Hispano-Suiza aircraft cannon. Because of this, the rifle turned out to be very heavy and oversized, but its large caliber allowed it to fight a variety of targets.

Even towards the end of the war, when anti-tank rifles were considered obsolete and could not counter the American "Shermans", the Type 97 continued to be successfully used against landing craft and with high-explosive shells against infantry and aircraft.
