O-I by Seon Eun Ae

Author: Seon Eun Ae

The O-I (オイ車 Oi-sensha) was a super-heavy tank prototype designed by the Imperial Japanese Army during the Second Sino-Japanese War after the Battles of Nomonhan in 1939. The O-I is one of the Second World War’s more secretive tank projects, with documentation regarding the tank being kept private for over 75 years at Wakajishi Shrine, Fujinomiya. Surviving files have been purchased by FineMolds Inc., and publicly previewed in mid-2015. The multi-turreted 150-ton tank was designed for use on the Manchurian plains as a supportive pillbox for the Imperial Japanese against the Soviet Union. The project was disbanded four years after the initial development began, deemed unsatisfactory for continuation in 1943 after the lack of resource material for the prototype.




Hope you are having a most jolly weekend! I just to warn you that things today are oddly quiet but it actually couldn't come more in handy, just finished packing and I'm leaving in 2 hours for the airport.
And don't worry, I can keep on working where I'm going to.

Going to leave you with a new article, its nearly ready. :)
