i second what Cro says.

the Japanese did make use of armour, as we all know, the durability and thickness of their armor makes them more opted for covert ops like engagements.

iow, Hit and run, ambush attacks, backstabs, precision surgery, guerilla warfare, you name it, they will proprarbly be perhaps the only nation with tanks invisible even on the move (to some degree and from a set minimum distance.)

since a jap tanker will have to rely on others for protection, aside from camouflage they need an ability in combat that will balance out their somewhat fragile status.

I can imagine that in later tiers they might have an higher chance for critical hits, and in maps containing large bodies of water they can be used as tank version of the marines, since they did extensive development, production and use of amphibious tanks, these tanks should be able to travel in any river, creek or lake, removing an obstacle and opening up new tactics and ways to fight.

in any case the japanese were known to think outside the frame, from both a western and standard perspective.

until the japanese has come or any news of what abilities and special attributes they will actually have, the topic will remain open for debate.

To expand a bit on Japanese armour.

I have looked at the IJA for other projects. Most Japanese tanks had shoulder shoved guns and hand cranked turrets, so high speed aiming, but slow turret traverse would be in order. That with a decent Camo value would  give a very unique feel.
You could also make a good claim for the Japanese having a low visibility range, as many of their tanks had the Tank commander doing other things as well.

So in Summary I'd go for the following ideas:
Fast
Good Camo
Good aiming times
Slow turret traverse
Lower than normal Vision range.

Edited for sausage finger typing mistakes.

On the North American Forums someone did a great job at a Japanese tech tree.

I kinda have my doubts about a Japanese tech tree... I mean, the Japanese did make tanks as far as I would say, tier 6, their main medium tank, the Type 97 will probably be only good at tier 4, but, unlike the French, what exactly did the Japanese have after the war?

Well not all Japanese tank designs during the war got made. So I'm sure the Japanese high tiers will be a mixture of WWII paper tanks and for the top of the medium tree:

The first test vehicles, STA-1 (completed in December 1956) and STA-2 (completed in February 1957) were built and tested. The results were used to develop the STA-3 (completed in January 1960) and STA-4 (completed in November 1959) in 1960. More improvements were made in 1961 and the deployment of the Type 61 started in the same year.

Taken from Wiki. Before that they used M47's and M24's.
