Waterloo 1815 Japanese WWII troops. Grenade launcher, lunge mine, and observer.
ATR man with loader and observer.
Few plastic Japanese heavy weapons have been on the market and this set really helps beef up their units.
Lunge mine in use against a Soviet T-34 tank. It has a range of the length of the stick.
Half of the Japanese set deployed against a Soviet medium tank. These little guns were in use all during the war. The Japanese had very bad anti-tank defenses. There was little requirement for them against the Chinese and not much tank use on the Pacific islands, except the Philippines.
