I need to get this straight out of the way. Both the Type 61 and Type 74 (STB-1 Replacement) imported from War Thunder belongs to Milkym4n, and can be downloaded on his website here. For more of his work, you can check his thread. As such, I take absolutely no credit whatsoever for this mod, as this is nothing more than a reskin. Anyway, now that that's been said, to the thread at hand.
Hello once again. Unlike my previous threads, I feel like I want to get the list of other modmakers out of the way first. So yeah, here are links to other modmakers that I highly recommend you check out if you haven't.

Ok, ok, now we'll actually get to the thread itself. This mod contains reskins of both Milkym4n's Type 74 (STB-1 Replacement) and Type 61, turning them from the original aquamarine colour to a pale Dark-Green, somewhat similar to the regular colour of other Japanese vehicles in-game but not exactly the same (as personally, I prefer a darker tone to it. Notice a trend here with my skins? ). I've probably not done it perfectly, but I do hope it's good enough for everyone. There really isn't much else to it, so here's the previews.
All credit to the mod, if I didn't say it enough times, belongs to Milkym4n and I'll take this down if requested to. That said, I hope you enjoy and please report any problems to me.
If the pale Dark-Green doesn't tickle your fancy, I suggest taking a look over to one of the modmakers listed in the links above, FastestClassic, as he has also redone both the Type 61 and Type 74 in a lovely reddish-brown colour to go with his mod that recolours every HD Japanese tank to the same colour. Additionally, the Japanese decal in my previews also belongs to him and you can find it in the same mod, link right below.
Last few things to say;
-the mod comes with an optional change to the STB-1's name and description to perhaps better reflect the Type 74 Replacement. This is optional namely because I believe it could cause issues with regards to updates, so please be wary about just copying+pasting it whenever an update occurs. That said, I think it looks rather fitting.
-there are also optional GUI Icons for both, replacing them with an in-game screenshot modified to hopefully more accurately portray the imported models compared to using just the base icons. They are not perfect, and the Type 61 Lacks one for the version without a gun canvas, but I hope they'll do. The previews are thanks to TankSchmidt, as I do not own either of the tanks myself;
All that said, if you enjoy this mod you can maybe check out some of my others in the links below.
