Three Japanese WWII Vehicles that would be great to see in-game


Japan has a lot of vehicles that are currently not in game that were made, and produced. Some Vehicles were just armed with machine guns, but there three beauties are heavily armed. Closer to the end of WWII, Japan began deploying newer versions of the Type-95 Ha-Go tank, which either greatly increased it's firepower, or just made it into a small fast tank destroyer. These three are all late war modifications of the Ha Go

 

Number one: Type 5 Ho-Ru
The Ho-ru was inspired by the German Hetzer, but it was very lightly armored. At it's front plate, it hat 35mm of armor, while the sides were just 20mm, it's main weapon was it's mobility (45kph max) and it's firepower (Japanese type 1 47mm at gun). This little machine was held back on the mainland, much like the Chi-He, for the defense of the homeland.

 

Number two: Type 4  Ho-To 
Much like the Ho-Ro was based on the Chi Ha chassis, the Ho-To was based on the Ha Go chassis. It housed a 120mm howitzer, but had about the same amount of armor as the Ho-Ro, and was much quicker (50kph) despite the 120mm howitzer. It's deployment was limited.

Number three: Type 4 Ke-Nu
The Ke-Nu was a Japanese attempt to up-gun the Ha-Go with the main gun of the type 97 Chi Ha, being a 57mm howitzer. While retaining the same amount of armor, the tank mecame slightly heavier which lowered it's max speed slightly. It's deployment was  was limited.

All Three tanks are great machines and I really wish to see them in game, as the Ha-Go chassis was like the Panzer III or 38(T) for the germans, as there were many variations made off of it.
I recommend that these tanks be put at the following BRs:

Ho-Ru
2.0-2.3

Ho-Ro
2.0-3.0

Ke-Nu
1.7-2.0

(Dont mind the Ke-Ri, I think that it could be put into the game, but I really don't like it, it's just a ha go with a new gun, nothing else)
