Battlefront features the Light Sensha Platoon for Flames of War

Battlefront featured the Medium Sensha Platoon already, so here's the Light Sensha Platoon.
I'm awaiting the Heavy Sensha Platoon that I'm sure will be here eventually.

From the website:

Light Sensha Platoon (JBX03) includes five Type 95 Ha-Go Light tanks & five Tank Commander figures.

The Japanese military development of the Type 95 Ha-Go light tank was purely out of necessity. The medium Type 89 Chi-Ro tank suffered from an inability to keep pace on the battlefield with the fast moving infantry mounted in trucks that could reach speeds up to 40 km/h.

The Type 95 Ha-Go was lighter and faster than the Type 89 Chi-Ro and was armed with a Type 94 37mm gun, as well as turret and hull machine-gun. It first entered service in 1935 and proved more than capable of holding its own against other light tank designs of the period.
