The Type 74 Tank is the top of the line in munitions weapons that the Japanese possessed in the early eighties. Heavily armored, and outfitted with a 105 mm cannon, the tanks proved to hold their targets at bay. Able to shell an area, continuously without fear of the barrel overheated, the vehicles earned their respect. Moving across any form of terrain, the 74 tanks were able to position defenses lines against any oncoming kaiju that dared to reveal itself to Japan. Massively produced, the weapons survived the entire reign of Godzilla until its apparent death in 1995. Fighting the likes of Godzilla, Battra, Mothra, and Destoroyah, the legacy of the serrated tread vehicle will be remembered.
