    ztz-96B must have gotten a bad image from last year´s biathlon incident (a brand new tank with a fractured axis?). Now china will have to work hard to restore confidence in ztz-96 and even in their tank industry in general.

    Oh how amazing you can stretch it this far, from one unique incident to "tank industry in general"?

    Alright. But Franklin was asking about 96B specifically. Do you have answer to his question, too? I'd like to hear it as well.

    Anyone have pictures of Type-88A tanks (welded turret + and what looked like 105 gun) in PLA service? I watched an Tianamen documentary in Finnish television few years ago and for my surprise I noticed few Type-88's guarding a bridge.

    I think they could be Type-59-IIs armed with the L7 105mm guns.

    Impossible because of the welded turret.
