Overview

KoGata

A Renault Kō Gata with the original Puteaux SA 1918 37mm gun.

The Kō Gata Sensha (first kind of tank) was a Japanese licensed French tank. In 1919, Japan purchased 22 Renault FT-17 light tanks, which arrived in 1920. The vehicles were given to the Army Infantry School, which founded a tank school unit for them, as well as the 1st IJA tank Company. This company was a trial unit aimed to learn everything about the new vehicles. Eventually, the Army Cavalry School also received some Kō Gata. The cavalry was impressed with the vehicle and requested more. However, in 1922, it was decided by the IJA that only the infantry units were to be allowed operation of tanks. All Kō Gata were transferred to the infantry.

Some Kō Gata were sent to Manchuria where they successfully participated in several clashes with Chinese from 1929 - 1931. Many Kō Gata (cannon model) were field modified, having the main armament replaced with a 37mm Sogekiho Infantry Gun. The tank was quickly becoming obsolete and was gradually replaced with new designs. All of the remaining vehicles were given to the IJA Tank School where they were used as driver training vehicles until they were completely phased out in 1932.
