A single unarmed prototype of the Type 5 Chi-Ri was completed by May 1945.
The Type 5 Chi-Ri had sloped welded amour, with a maximum thickness of 75 mm at the front.
The Type 5 Chi-Ri was initially to be powered by a Diesel engine, but the advancements needed to provide the necessary horsepower fell behind schedule, and a 550 HP V-12 gasoline-driven aircraft engine designed by BMW in Germany and licensed to Kawasaki Heavy Industries in Japan was selected instead.
