The Mark 3 Model 3 RADAR (三号電波探信儀三型 san-gou denpa-tanshingi san-gata), also known as the Type 33 Radar (33号電探), is is a remodelled version of the Type 22 Radar. In comparison to the Type 22, which was designed as a Shipborne Surface Search Radar, the Type 33 was designed as a Shipborne Surface Fire-control Radar. Three rectangular horn antennas (one transmitter and two receivers) were mounted on a Type 22 Radar frame. The device was completed during the final stages of the war, but wasn't installed on any vessel.
- It is mistakenly thought that this is a miniaturized version of the Type 32 Radar, it is not.
Note: The Imperial Japanese Army originally coined the term 電波探知機 denpa-tanchiki (abbr. 電探 dentan), while the Imperial Japanese Navy coined the term 電波探信儀 denpa-tanshingi, both referring to Active Radars; Passive Radars were called 電波警戒機 denpa-keikaiki and 電波探知機 denpa-tanchiki (abbr. 逆探 gyakutan) respectively. At the end of the war, the IJA's original term and its abbreviation were adopted for widespread use.
