- The Type 96 25mm Gun (九六式二十五粍高角機銃 Kyūroku-shiki nijyūgo-miri Kōkakukijū) was an automatic cannon used by the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. A local built variant of the French Hotchkiss 25mm anti-aircraft gun, it was primarily used as an anti-aircraft gun in fixed mounts with between one and three guns, but was designed as a dual-purpose weapon for use against armored vehicles as well.
It was the standard Japanese medium antiaircraft weapon of the Imperial Japanese Navy, being mounted aboard practically everything that floated, and was also used in land bases in the Japanese Empire and in the Japanese overseas combat fronts. These weapons were also used as anti-tank guns in some defensive actions in Pacific theaters and against land objectives in southeast Asia/Chinese mainland during the Pacific War.

Ingame, it can be a deadly weapon for enemy aircraft if is in accurate hands. Also, infantry and LVT's are easy targets too because of its high RPM (though reloading is quite slow), and it even can M4 Sherman hull sides, which makes it a valuable AT weapon.
Initially, the type 96 was introduced as a double mount.
The triple mount version entered service in 1941.
