The Return of Godzilla

The J.S.D.F. deployed several units of Type 74 Tanks with M110A2 Self-Propelled Howitzers, Ballistic Missile Launchers and battalions of armed ground troops with assault rifles to take positions along the coastline of Tokyo Bay, awaiting Godzilla's arrival. Godzilla arrived at Tokyo Bay as the air force attacked him with fighter jets, but most of them were shot down as he proceeded closer to the coast. The Type 74 tanks and other ground units opened fire on Godzilla, but their bombardment was ineffective on the radioactive behemoth. Godzilla then unleashed a long blast of his atomic ray, wiping out all of the ground units.
