The Type 94 began production in 1936 with approximately 3,400 units produced. It could fire both HE and AP rounds and was usually assigned in groups of four to combat infantry regiments. Although the weapon had performed well against Soviet light armor, it was obsolete when facing Allied armor such as the Sherman tank.
The weapon fired a 37X165mm shell and could attain a rate of fire of 30 rounds per minute with a well-trained crew (usually 11 personnel). It had a muzzle velocity of 700 meters per second and the Imperial Japanese Army claimed a penetration capability of 20mm at a distance of 1,000 and substantially higher penetration at shorter distances.

The intention is to include this weapon in groups of four (with 11 personnel each) in the regimental level estab unit once that is configured.
