[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

AnnoJ04_Ke_Ni.png

43500

The Type 98 Ke-Ni is a Japanese tier 3 light tank.

A further modification of the Ha-Go developed by Hino Jidosha Kogyo. Despite the improved dynamic characteristics, the tank did not replace the Ha-Go. About 100 tanks were manufactured by Mitsubishi and Hino.

The Type 98 Ke-Ni leads to the Type 5 Ke-Ho.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good Agility
  • Potent gun when top tier with a good rate of fire
  • Small, difficult to land a shot on this tank while it is moving
  • Good Camo values
  • Decent radio range


Cons:


  • Paper thin armor
  • Can easily take module damage
  • Mediocre gun handling


Performance

This tank is not a brawler. It has paper thin armor and a gun weaker than some counterparts. However, this tank has great speed and can easily outflank most heavy tanks, you can use your 3-shot magazine gun to destroy other equal tier scouts, support flanking mediums or distract heavy tanks. You can also act as a scout, relaying information to your allies.


Early Research

  • You should first research the tracks.
  • Then depending on whether you want to be a scout or aggressive flanker you should research either the radio or the gun.
  • Go from there.

Historical Info

The Type 98 developed in 1938 was a light tank with the same weight as the earlier Type 95, but with thicker armor. The prototype of the new Type 98 tank was completed by Hino Motors in 1939, but it did not enter production at the time. This can be attributed to the adequate performance of the aging Type 95 against obsolete tanks of National Revolutionary Army of the Republic of China forces.


With the start of World War II, the Imperial Japanese Army General Staff quickly realized that the Type 95 design was vulnerable to .50 caliber machine gun fire and attempted to develop a light tank with the same weight as the Type 95, but with thicker armor. A production contract for the Type 98 was awarded to Hino Motors and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, with a total of 104 Type 98s are known to have been built, 1 in 1941, 24 in 1942 and 79 in 1943. By the end of the war, the Imperial Navy had priority on steel for warships and aircraft construction, leaving the Imperial Japanese Army at the bottom of the list for raw material to build tanks with.

The design of the Type 98, in comparison to the Type 95, featured thicker, welded armor of improved shape, including the use of a Mitsubishi Type 100 6-Cylinder air-cooled diesel engine, rated at 130 horsepower, and located sideways to make maintenance easier. Slightly lighter and shorter than the original Type 95, it could travel at 50 km/h even with its thicker armor. Three pairs of bogies with six road-wheels connected to the chassis using bell cranks, which transferred any movement in the bogies into sideways motion that was absorbed by springs.

In contrast to the one-man turret of Type 95, the Type 98 had a conventional two-man turret, carrying a Type 100 37 mm tank gun, with a muzzle velocity of 760 m/s, and also a coaxial 7.7 mm machine gun.

Variants:


Type 98B Ke-Ni Otsu

Outside the standard Type 98, also known as the Type 98A Ke-Ni Ko, there was the experimental Type 98B Ke-Ni Otsu developed by Hino Motors from the Prototype 98B. It featured four large road wheels and no return rollers, in a Christie-like fashion. This version was never accepted into production.

Type 98 Ta-Se SPAA

The Type 98 Ta-Se 20 mm (0.79 in) anti-aircraft prototype was developed in November 1941, with a Soki Type 2 20 mm (0.79 in) AA gun derived from the Type 98 auto-cannon, and housed in a large open turret. “Ta” stands for “Taikū” (“anti-air”) and “Se” for sensha (“tank”). After deceiving trials, the project was cancelled in 1943.

Type 2 Ke-To

This model was the main derivative of the Type 98. It was all-improved, with a better Type 1 37 mm (1.46 in) main gun, capable of a muzzle velocity of 810 m/s in a modified, roomier turret. The “Ke” stands for “light” and “To”, the seventh. Only 28 were built in all, during the fall of 1944 and 1945. Like most Japanese tanks this late in the war, it never left the Home Islands and never fought.

Wartime actions:

The 104 (132 according to another source) Type 98 Ke-Nis were produced by Hino Motors (Hino Jidosha Kogyo) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. These small numbers can be explained by the priority given to the building of warships. According to General Hara, this small production was also explained by the reluctance of the Army High Command to increase the number of different types in service, and because crews were already well trained and quite happy with the existing Ha-Go type. Being released so late in the war, the Ke-Ni operational records are unknown and most likely they were given to young recruits and kept in the Home Islands.
