The author is the Japanese person who developed this model kit.I’m sorry, I do not have English is good at.This home page is basically a Japanese notation.
O-I is the tank of Japan.It is an ultra heavy tank with a weight of 150 tons. During WW2, they tried making the car body and tried it, but the plan was canceled because many problems occurred. We have not known the details of this tank for a long time.Materials were found in 2014, and details were found out.In the past, this tank was called “trial production 100 ton tank”.
This tank became world famous by the game “World of Tanks”. In the game, this tank is much better than it actually is.Actual armor is only 30mm – 35mm. I think that the real thing was present, it was easily destroyed by M4 tank and T-34 tank.
