type 97 Chi Ha in Indochina?

Recommended Posts

Recently, I stumbled on information that Type 97 Chi Ha tanks were used in Commando Blindé du Cambodge (French post-ww2 ad-hoc armored unit in Cambodia), amongst other Japanese and French types! Is it true:wonder:?

...And must say that I did not manage to find any confirmation of that information :(!

In advance, many thanks to all of you:bye:!

I found a few references online to japanese types in french service. But the photo’s i saw were grainy. Also the majority led back to World of tanks, i believe a computer game. Though i did see some reference on wiki pages concerning the Type 95 HA-GO tank being used by the French.

Yes, indeed French used Type 95 Ha Go tanks in opening stage of First Indochina War! And if I am not wrong, particularly in Commando Blindé du Cambodge. There is a few photos on the web of Ha Go in french service during First Indochina War (or French War), but nothing about Type 97!
