The Type 10 Tank (10式戦車,   Hitomaru-shiki Sensha) is a next-generation main battle tank (MBT) of the JSDF, produced by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. It has appeared in multiple Toho kaiju films, beginning with Shin Godzilla in 2016.

History[edit | edit source]

Reiwa era[edit | edit source]

Shin Godzilla[edit | edit source]

After Godzilla emerged in his towering fourth form at Sagami Bay near Kamakura and began to advance on Tokyo, the JGSDF mobilized its forces, which included Type 10 Tanks, to attack him. The Type 10s led the attack, firing on Godzilla and using their cannons to shoot at the giant kaiju, but the chaotic situation led to the mission being a failure; once the dust cleared, most of the tanks were wrecked as Godzilla merely walked through them. In the panic that followed, several of the remaining tanks crashed into each other, becoming immobilized. With no opposition left, the creature continued its approach to Tokyo after passing through the JSDF's defense line.

Shin Ultraman[edit | edit source]

After Gomess emerged from a mine in the Japanese countryside and began rampaging through the surrounding mountains, he was met by a detachment of Type 10 Tanks of the JGSDF, which swiftly killed him by firing a volley of shells at the monster.

Godzilla vs. Gigan Rex[edit | edit source]

As a Gigan Miles massacred a squadron of JSDF F-35 fighter jets in the skies above, a tank battalion fired upon another cyborg to little effect. It returned fire with its forehead laser, destroying them. Still another monster skewered a pair of tanks on one of its claws.
