I cannot identify what you wanted to say by type 5 HO. There were following Type 5 Ho-XX.

Type 5 47mm SP Gun "Ho-Ru"

Type 5 105mm SP Gun Tank "Ho-Ri"

Type 5 15cm SPG "Ho-Chi"
One was built in 1945. But, it had not been completed until the war ended.

As stated in my site, Ho-Ri was built. But, the chassis was not completed until the war ended. So, complete Ho-Ri did not exist.
