Does anyone know if WG ever plans to rework the Type 5? The current in-game design is nothing like the suggested drawing that was posted on the wiki...

 

For those who want to see a more realistic, per se, rendition of the drawing, follow this link.

 

And, to be honest, I like the drawing: it looks beefier.

I will be honest and say I have no clue what you are talking about. Will you post the link?

He means the Type 5, which is a mislabeled Type 2605, which he is incorrectly parenthesizing the design number on.

I was thinking it was just the Type 5 but wasn't sure. After looking for the "2605" and couldn't find anything on it I pretty much forgot about the post. lol

Fixed: just click on the word "drawing."

I've been curious where the (false) designation comes or was inspired from, if any at all.

As best as I can figure, people (that is to say WG's people) saw the typical Japanese model year system and just assumed it would follow for the Type 2600 series.

 

While I've seen some references to Type 4 and 5, from what I've seen, everything was officially Type 2604 or type 2605, possibly due to they're only being prototype and design studies, not officially accepted by the IJA.
