Development of the Japanese Type 61 tank started in 1955 and the vehicle was first deployed in April 1961. The Type 61 is conventionally laid out, with a central turret and the engine located at the rear of the hull. The tank has a crew of four: a commander, driver, gunner and loader. The hull is welded steel with a cast steel turret. A total of 560 were produced. The tanks were phased out of service in the 1990s and all were decommissioned by 2000, 39 years after their original deployment. During this period, the Type 61 received minor upgrades in the form of infrared searchlights and/or smoke dischargers. From 1980, Type 61's began to be supplemented by the more modern Type 74 MBT.
