JGSDF Type 87 AW Self Propelled Anti-Aircraft Gun 1/35 Trumpeter
The Type 87 AW is a Japanese air defense weapon built around the Oerlikon 35mm twin cannon system used on the Gepard tank. It was developed in 1987 and given the Type 87 designation status, with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries providing the chassis and Japan Steel Works providing the cannon system. Initially, the chassis of the Type 61 tank would be used. Later, it was rejected and had the chassis of the Type 74 tank used instead as a basis for producing the Type 87 AW.
