First combat use of the Type 97 anti-tank rifle

In May 1939, the only mass-produced Japanese anti-tank rifle, the Type 97, first saw combat during the Battles of Khalkhin Gol.

The design of the new anti-tank rifle proposed by the Kokura Arsenal followed the solutions previously used in the Swiss 20mm Hispano-Suiza aircraft cannon. Because of this, the rifle turned out to be very heavy and oversized, but its large caliber allowed it to fight a variety of targets.

Even towards the end of the war, when anti-tank rifles were considered obsolete and could not counter the American “Shermans”, the Type 97 continued to be successfully used against landing craft and with high-explosive shells against infantry and aircraft.

From May 30th (13:00 UTC) to June 5th (13:00 UTC), you can get rewards for completing tasks. For completing 5 out of the 9 tasks, you will receive a unique “Type 14 engraved” pistol, and for 7 completed tasks, a unique portrait.


Stage 1:

  • Destroy 4 vehicles.
  • Kill 90 enemies.
  • Complete 4 battles.

Stage 2:

  • Destroy 6 vehicles.
  • Kill 10 enemies using grenades.
  • Complete 6 battles.

Stage 3:

  • Destroy 8 vehicles.
  • Kill 150 enemies.
  • Complete 8 battles.


  • The tasks can be completed in the Squads mode.
  • The list of tasks is updated every two days at 13:00 UTC.
  • Tasks can be completed simultaneously.
  • Uncollected rewards will disappear when the tasks change.
  • From June 5th to June 7th (13:00 UTC), after the end of the event, you will have the opportunity to purchase any missing rewards.

Nice little event.

Hopefully one day it comes as a low BR map in Enlisted.

I will.

And even according to your reasoning, the Nambu is arguably the best Japanese pistol.

Can’t you guys be creative (as in challenges) and have people get kills with an AT gun instead of forcing people to play a certain amount of games?
