According to the official Twitter account of Oarai Tourist Association, Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF) will display a Type 74
main battle tank at Oarai Kairaku Festival to be held on March 24th. Oarai City is the model town of Girls und Panzer
and the festival features the tank anime. JGSDF Camp Tsuchiura said they could have brought their tank to Oarai Anglerfish Festival held last November if they had known the live event of Girls und Panzer a few months earlier. They tried to bring the newest Type 10
MBT but couldn't due to the concern about possible damages to the expensive tank.
