    ZTZ-96A has composite armor modules and ERA that original ZTZ-96 lacks, and that is the easiest way to differentiate them.

    With the biatlon being held in russia, theres no chance that any country other than russia will get to first place in this contest.

    The important thing is to gain experience for Chinese tank crew. Since 2016 China stopped sending the cream of the crop to the tank biathlons.

    Really? i dont think that there will be much for china to gain from it, for just one crew. Perhabs this is just for political reasons.

    That crew can share the experience they gained with the rest of the troops in their division.

    Are they doing joint exercices ? if not, if its just a race, then theres little to be gained in it in terms of crew experience IMO, specially since its not the first year they do it. Now perhabs they are doing it to compare the tank performance to the tanks of the other nations, not to mention the performance of the crew to the other crews. That seems more probable to me.
