A 1940 Japanese film about tanks fighting in the 2nd Sino-Japanese War. I have yet to finish it, but it is fairly realistic as far as an old film is concerned. Is it propaganda? Of course, but so is every other war film ever made! YouTube link
Note that the surname has a connection to Girls und Panzer!

The tank featured is the Type 89. These are shown ponderously rolling along smashing through walls and being close assaulted by Nationalist infantry in M35 Stahl helms.

I finished it. I found it enjoyable. It is mostly realistic and even touches on the suffering of Chinese civilians, though the horrors of Nanking are omitted, as one would expect. It is sort of an All Quiet on the China Front with Tanks. Few punches are pulled in the depiction of the suffering of the common soldiery. The usual themes of self-sacrifice are included to keep up the morale of the domestic audience in 1940.
