The Japanese Type 2 Ke-To Light Tank

Japan developed the Type 98-A and Type 98-B as a replacement for the Type 95 Ha-Go Light Tank during 1938. Only the Type 98-A Ke-Ni entered production and roughly 100 were built by Hino and Mitsubishi. An improved model called the Type 2 Ke-To was introduced and had a new 37mm (Type 1) high-velocity anti-tank gun. Production started in 1944, but only a few were built by the end of the war.
