Type 98 may refer to:

Japanese military vehicles[edit]

Japanese guns[edit]

Japanese military aircraft[edit]

  • Aichi E11A, which was designated Type 98 Reconnaissance Seaplane
  • Mitsubishi Ki-15, which was designated Navy Type 98 Reconnaissance Plane Model I
  • Tachikawa Ki-36, which was designated Type 98 Direct Co-operation Aircraft

Other Japanese war material[edit]

In Japanese military usage, a "Type" number denoted the year it was accepted into production, according to the Japanese calendar but using only the last two digits and a different calendar). Year 98 was 1938 (after Year 99, numbering starts again at 0). Thus, any piece of equipment, from rifles to machine guns to aircraft to artillery and uniforms which was accepted in 1938 is called the "Type 98". (This can be confusing when two pieces of similar equipment share the same designation, such as the Type 89 machine gun, or the Type 1 machine gun, which shared a designation with the Imperial Japanese Army's Ho-103 machine gun.)

Chinese war material[edit]
