    ==I don't think so, the plants will only be mounted onto the tanks when required, they will just be part of the barrack/depot/base most of the time.

    ==Leaves will grow back, but experienced crews will not when they get killed.

    ==Gardening is a relaxing and en-nobling hobby.

    Do you really need an assembly line to produce such an armor? Wouldn't use 4 four guys, fifty pounds of chicken wire, some shovels, and an afternoon? Seem inpractical for anything except for field. (Kinda like Era)

    ==We have to make it of reasonable strength so the plants won't be blown away when the main gun fires, and the pots have to be tightly secured so they won't fall off when on a bumpy ride. most parts on tanks are impratical except for on operations, including armour, weapon, fire control ets.

    wether yes or no for me the most important was China should start decomissioning old tanks like type 59's and replace it with new ones like type 98 to make its army totaly modern and powerful.

    lee, the PLA is doing that slowly. By the end of this year, China may have well over 2000 type 96's in service. Yet even that quantity is unable to replace the estimated 5,500 type 59s. The PLA may consider replacing the 59s with IFVs, but they are expensive too.

    Yes I know that that's why I will be totaly glad to see a faster phase of replacing, I believe spending a few Billion dollars more for the army will not be hard for China's economic position currently.

    Yes, but are there such need, 2000 type 96's, let PLA receive 40 Type 99 per year since 2001: 200 type 99, 1,000 Type 79s, and 3,000 Type 69s is already a formidable Tank force.

    The money is better spend on training, State of the Art C3IR which the PLA lack, to modernize other PLA element.

    MBT are good they a powerful babies but they need a lot of support from other element of the Army to make them work poperly, it not like C&C that u built 5000 tank and they can take over the world.

    type 69s and 88's are outdated too. for its ground forces, Chiense PLA C3i isnt as lacking as it is in the PLAN and PLAAF. there are plenty of communications and command vehicles out there.

    Nethappy, I agree with MIGleader type 69's and type 79's are already old also building more new ones and replace them in a faster phase like type 98, etc. would be nice and make China having a formidable tank force.

    The amount of C3I the PLA has it not the problem but the overall capability is.

    Well have you forgot about cost here.
