Tanks used during the February 26 incident?

Does anyone happen to know what tanks were used during the February 26 incident?
English sources just mention "22 tanks," but don't elaborate on models.

I ask in part since I recently watched the film 226, and they used some interesting tank mockups,

It also appears the IJN's Vickers Crossley No. 9 and Carden Loyd MKVIb tankette were dispatched from the Yokosuka Naval Gunnery School to help, but I have no solid written source.
