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. During its 39-year service 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. Development of this version started in 1964. The design was finalized in September of 1974 and the first production run was received a year later. In total 870 were made.
