The first photo is TGE truck model N. Note that Type 90 is a wrong.designation. It had no year type designation. See the photo below.

The second photo is Type 94 4-wheeled truck. There were both models 4-wheeled and 6-wheeled in Type 94 truck.

How often were tracks used over the rear tires, like shown in the pic? Any further details about the tracks?

Type 94 6-wheeled truck and other 6-wheels usually used tracks. The photo below is Type 92 AA Gun Prime Mover attaching tracks. It is a kind of chains for snow.

Thank you Taki,

The tracks in post #327 appear to be of a different type. Were there multiple types of over-the-tire tracks? Thanks again

The tank captioned as Type 91 Heavy Tank seems to be actually Experimental Mk.1 Tank's remodeled version.

It is Type 91 Well Digging Machine. It was made by Nihon Sakusen Co. Ltd. in 1928. It used TGE truck model L.

Hi.

There is a film on the National Film Archive of Japan-website from 1925 about a test firing of an experimental 7,5 cm AA-gun mounted on a truck.

https://filmisadocument.jp/films/view/95

1. Can someone identify the truck?
2. Are there any infos about the gun? It´s said to be an early prototype of the Type 88 7,5 cm AA-Gun

Yours

It is original vehicle made for it by Osaka Arsenal.

Type 88 is wrong. It is Type 11.
