The Type3 Light Tank (三式軽戦車), known by the confidential name Ke-Ru (ケル) is a Japanese light tank developed in 1943, which was the result of equipping the Type95 Light Tank with the turret of the Type97 Medium Tank.
Due to the confusion of research in the past, this vehicle which was long held as Type4 Light Tank 'Ke-Nu' is actually Type3 Light Tank 'Ke-Ru'. The real Type4 Light Tank 'Ke-Nu' is a turret revision of the Type2 Light Tank.
