There's a late war British infantry manual for troops in Burma that instructs how to disable a Chi Ha turret with a knife or bayonet.
Tank turrets are built as separate pieces of the hull, and this was specially true for the Chi Ha tanks. There was a "gap" between the turret and the hull that was filled by some special heat isolating material. It was a very important part for the Japanese tank because Southeast Asia and China are very hot, but it meant the turret was not properly fixed on the hull. It was possible to disable the turret's movement by "stabbing" that gap between the turret and the hull. The Chi Ha tank was very light, weighting less than 10 tons iIrc, and the turret was particularly small. This particular shot is brilliant because pushing the turret of a Chi Ha from the inside like this was technically possible, and as far as I know, this can only be done with a Chi Ha tank because of its unique turret.
It is revealed that Nishi has a motorcycle called Uranus in the drama CD. I think most people might know this because of Letters from Iwo Jima, but the Japanese Cavalry (tank) commander in the Battle of Iwo Jima was an Olympic gold medalist whose horse was called Uranus.
