Type 97 Chi-Ha tank

Type 97 Chi-Ha tank, made in Japan in 1937, which is on display at the Military Museum of Chinese People's Revolution, Beijing, China.

This tank was obtained by the Chinese People's Liberation Army from the Shenyang Tank Repair Factory of the Japanese Kwangtung Army in November 1945.

This is one of the earliest tanks used by the PLA. In the battle for Kamzhou, Communist party member Comrade Dong drove this tank and penetrated deeply into the defences of the Nationalist Army to complete its mission successfully. For this, Comrade Dong was honoured with an award and this tank was given the honourable designation of a "Merit Tank". In 1949 during the Inauguration Ceremony of the Peoples' Republic, this tank was paraded in front of the leaders of the Chinese Communist Party.

This photo was taken in October, 2009.
