Following is the composition of a Japanese Independent Anti-Tank Company operating in Burma:
The total strength of the company is approximately 150.
Eight 37 mm Anti-tank guns. Each gun is carried on a 1 1/2 ton truck. 150 rounds of
ammunition are carried in each truck. No motor transport is provided for the men.
The unit was subdivided in the advance on Rangoon. Two platoons
were with the 33rd Division and two with the 55th Division. The two
platoons with the 55th Division were to operate with Japanese tanks, but
failed to do so because the tanks could not cross the Sittang River in
