Adapted from the manufacturer:

Japanese Type 89 Medium Tanks were produced starting in 1931.  It entered service in the Japanese Imperial Army one year later, in 1932, and sooon became their main tank.  It required a crew of 4, and its armament consisted of a Type 90 57mm gun and 2 Type 91 6.5mm machine guns.  The final production version of the Type 89 tank, "Otsu," was the world's first mass-produced tank with a diesel engine.  Type 89 tanks of different versions saw action in the Second Sino-Japanese War, in the Khalkhin Gol battle against the Soviet Union and in the Second World War.  It proved to be very effective against Chinese forces, but was already obsolete by the time of the Khalkhin Gol and battles against the Allies in the Pacific Theater of World War II.
