The Type 16 MCV is a modern Japanese wheeled tank destroyer, developed in the early 2000’s for rapid deployment in the event of an outbreak of hostilities. Coming soon to War Thunder with update 1.89, Japanese tankers in the game may look forward to including this highly sophisticated war machine into their high tier lineups!

In War Thunder, the Type 16 MCV will be a new addition, coming to rank VII of the Japanese ground forces tree with the release of the upcoming update 1.89. Sharing not only a certain degree of visual similarity, but also performance with the Italian B1 Centauro, the Type 16 MCV will provide Japanese tankers with a unique new tank destroyer, which thanks to its design, is unlike any other found on previous ranks!





The Type 16 MCV will become available to all players at Rank VII of the Japanese ground forces tree with the release of the upcoming update 1.89. In the meantime, make sure to stay tuned for more news on the next major update coming to the game very soon. Until then, happy hunting commanders!
