(Note: no Japanese Light tank section, so I'm putting this topic here.)

 

So, I was retraining my Ke-Ni crew to my Ke-Ho when I noticed something downright odd. In the 'Training' tab of my crew's files --in the 'Vehicle:' drop-down-- underneath the Ke-Ni is some light Japanese tank named 'Ke-Ni Otsu'. I felt this was very peculiar. There is no 'Ke-Ni Otsu' in the research tree for Japan and it definitely isn't the Te-Ke supposed future reward tank, so... what is it??? I read somewhere that 'Otsu' means 'improved' in Japanese, so I'm guessing its an upgraded Ke-Ni. Any ideas to where this came from? I'm at a loss.

If you look at the tankopedia you will see the Ke-Ne Otsu there as a premium tank

Right now super testers have access to this vehicle.

 

I'm going to make a guess that its going to get pref-MM, similar to the T-127, on account of its inferior mobility and firepower compared to the standard Ke-Ni.

It's a tier 3 premium currently being supertested. Mention of it was made a few weeks ago on FTR, along with it being said that WG isn't sure whether it will be a gift tank, a reward tank (for missions or other events), or a regular tree premium.

I've looked at the stats for it and it doesn't look very interesting.  It's pretty much a stock Ke-Ni with more HP and (hopefully) pref mm.

Huh, must have missed that one.
