I don't know how Japanese topics interest this board, but I try.

What is this car? Imported this car encouraged the development of Type 93 6-Wheeled Passenger Car.

Hi Taki,
Very interesting question. I believe the Type 93 was based on the Hudson Special. Six of these were built for the Japanese Government in 1932.

Max I believe its Kfz 384.
Hi Rich,
I don't think so. It's difficult from this angle but please take another shot.
It's interesting working two questions at once, but why not?
Cheers,
Max

Max,

You know well. Yes, it is Hudson Special. Note that they are different in fender at spare tire. There seem variations in six Hudson Specials.

Hello Taki,
Domo arigato. From my understanding these were intended for use in Manchukuo. Despite having six wheels this car was just 2 wheel drive.

I post a new question to take up the quiz.

What is this snowmobile? The manufacturer is known by the famous Japanese WWII military car.

As there is no response, I write an answer.

It is snowmobile model 5F of Nihon Nainenki. Nihon Nainenki is known as the manufacturer of Type 95 Passenger Car "Kurogane", but it also made some special vehicles like snowmobile, swamp vehicle etc.

Because Japanese cars are not familiar to this board, I post a question about Western car.

What is this halftrack? It was imported from France.

Correct. IJA imported two copies in 1923. Note a sled on the side. It was attached to front wheel on the snow.

Thank you, Taki for another rare photo. Here is a pic of a similar vehicle of the Danish Army operating with the skis:
