Player Opinion

Pros and Cons


  • Highly accurate gun with nice penetration
  • Gun mantlet can absorb some shots
  • Decent camouflage values


  • Rather sluggish compared to other mediums of its tier
  • Poor armor and quite tall for its tier; constant module damage
  • Bad gun depression
  • Low penetration with gold ammo compared to other tier 5 mediums
  • Long reload time for unremarkable increase in damage


The designation is a little deceptive on this tank. The suffix "Kai" usually refers to an upgraded version of an existing military model. The Type 3 Chi-Nu Kai in World of Tanks is far from an upgrade to the Type 3 Chi-Nu, its regular Tier 5 counterpart. With "upgraded" suspension, according to historical sources, it actually is less maneuverable than its counterpart. The only real upgrade worth mentioning is a slightly better armored turret that can take some hits to the mantlet without much danger, but don't count on it. Gun depression, trademark of Japanese mediums is also worse. Side scraping is an option but don't rely on it.

If you own a Tiger 1, then this tank should be played as one, though you must remember your tall turret is a bullet magnet. Play as a support sniper even if you are top tier, as your armor is almost non-existent. Sixth Sense is definitely a must have for this tank.

For all intents and purposes, treat this as you would the Type 3 Chi-Nu; as a deadly sniper tank when it is top of its tier, and a flanking sniper when it is at the bottom.
