Re: Japanese type 11 gun with crew

I'm always happy to see more Japanese artillery crew, and these look nicely done. The little 37mm Type 11 looks good too. It wasn't a very effective weapon, and it was used much more extensively in China than later on in the Pacific; so less useful than one of the better Japanese guns would have been. There's also a small mis-match between the crews and the guns, I think. Aside from crew members standing up -- judging by the combat pictures, everybody stayed very low when using this gun -- one of the guns is in transport mode, with the tubes fitted on the front for the crew to carry it. There are no crew in carrying positions, though, so we'll need to snip off those tubes to get the gun back into firing mode (or else create some carrying crew from the earlier Strelets sets). The gun crews here will be very useful for other weapons, though, and I'll certainly use them for that.

Re: Japanese type 11 gun with crew

I agree with Arlin! Now we need U.S. Marine machine guns, mortars and artillery.

Re: Japanese type 11 gun with crew

Very pleased to see this gun . We now have a nice collection a lighter Japanese guns but I agree with Alan ; it would be nice to see one or two heavy artillery pieces too.

Re: Japanese type 11 gun with crew

US Army artillery crews yes please!

Also, without trying to belittle the U. S. war effort, they were not alone in defeating the Japanese. 14th Army, KNIL and even French troops have been suggested here before, but the even bigger gap is the lack of Chinese.

Japan was de facto at war with the Soviet Union from 1935 to 1941 (see battles of Lake Khasan and Khalkhin Gol). It would be great to have Soviet summer uniform infantry in Strelets' new sculpting style. They would certainly be welcomed by anyone doing the 1939 invasion of Poland, too.

Re: Japanese type 11 gun with crew

So HAPPY That Strelets has lounched the Japanese Range.
After years of doing "frankenstein" to get more Japanese troops, finally a Producers that is releasing FANTASTIC figures and poses!!
Keep the good work up and hope to see other set, maybe unusual ones :wink:
