Type 98 So-Da Armored Personnel and Ammo Carrier

Peu après la mise en production de la chenillette Type 97 Te-Ke, une version non armée de cette dernière fut développée pour servir comme transport de troupe et transport de munitions à la demande du Bureau Technique de l'Armée. Comme pour le Type 1 Ho-Ki il ne guère apprécié par l'armée car trop lent par rapport aux camions et ne pouvait fournir la mobilité prônée par les nouvelles tactiques de l'infanterie moderne. Très peu d'exemplaires furent produits.

Shortly after the entry in production of the tankette Type 97 Te-Ke, a version not armed of this latter was developed to be used like transport of troop and transport of ammunition at the request of the Technical Office of the Army. As for Type 1 Ho-Ki it was hardly appreciated by the army because too slow compared to the trucks and could not provide the mobility preached by the new tactics of modern infantry. Very few specimens were produced.
