Rare Armor. Armored personnel carriers Type 1 Ho-Ki via Bmashina Tumblr Page.

Armored personnel carriers Type 1 Ho-Ki, in China, in the summer of 1945.
One day an armor historian will do a better accounting of Japanese, Chinese and Australian armor during WW2.

We have a glut of info on the Russians and Germans.  We have quite a bit on the US.

But the pacific is where everyone has the misconception that armor wasn't used and that it was an all infantry affair.

Part of that lies with the Marine Corps.  Up until a few years ago, Infantry was all (now its aviation) so the valor of tanks/lvtp crews was lost in the sauce.

We need to do better...that includes properly cataloging Japanese efforts during the war.
