Type 5 Ke-Ho
140000
By 1945 the design of the Type 95 Ha-Go was already obsolete. In 1942 the Hino Jidosha company started to develop a new tank. A prototype designated the Type 5 Ke-Ho was built in 1944. The design of the tank was similar to that of the Czech LT vz.38 and the Japanese Chi-Ha. However, the vehicle did not go into mass production.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Small size
  • Good agility
  • Great firepower for a tier 4 light, premium AP round receives full 5 degrees of normalization and less loss of penetration ov
  • Does not get scout MM
  • good gun depression


Cons:


  • Absolutely no armor
  • Mediocre gun handling
  • Inaccurate gun makes sniping and hitting weak spots difficult
  • Relatively slow acceleration for a light tank


Performance

The Ke-Ho behaves much like the British Tier 4 Covenanter Light tank, yet out performs it in most ways. It is small in size, rather quick, with good agility, and good camo values, and a fast firing cannon makes it a mean opponent to assassinate lone enemies with. It also doubles as a support tank very capable of picking off enemies from around 100 meters. Or you can work in a light wolf pack punching holes in tanks in a not so dissimilar way to the Matilda. Its small size can also make it suitable for ambush duties should the situation arise.

The tank can take a hit but avoid brawling with anything other than lower tiers or badly wounded tanks as the armor is so thin a swift breeze could go through it, do however take advantage of the tiny turret and excellent gun depression to fire shots from behind cover.

This tank has one of the meanest guns at tier 4, the 57mm experimental is capable of more than 1,875 DPM, its aim time is a little slow but you need not wait to fire if you are close enough to your target. The penetration can get through targets easily up to t5, and the damage is about average for its tier.

The Ke-Ho Might be a difficult drive to begin with, learning not to engage with enemies until its guaranteed you're not gonna get hit maybe frustrating at first, but it's the right way to drive this tank, and most other tanks in the Japanese tree, once you've overcome this tank's weakness, you'll quickly become one of the deadliest tanks at tier 4.
