The official designation of Type 97 Chi-Ha with the new turret is also Type 97 Medium Tank Chi-Ha. KAI(improved) was named by a scholar of Japanese tanks after WWII. Shinhoto is the name which was used in Mitsubishi. So, there are no IJA official documents that call it as Type 97 Chi-Ha KAI, Type 97 Chi-Ha KAI Shinhoto or Type 97 Chi-Ha Shinhoto.
