    A brief operator’s guide for the APFSDS round used by the ZPT98 125mm smoothbore gun, which is equipped on the Type-99 MBT.

    220mm of RHA at 68.5° at 2000km is very bad compared to other rounds which can achieve 500mm at similar angle and range.

    That's 600mm LOS equivalent, pretty decent for an early-2000s Eastern round.

    Its most likely 220m thick plate at a 68.5 degree angle which is as Jobjed points out is approximately 600mm RHA. It does however just say over >2000m, so we know that it is at least 2km distance. Its pretty good, will penetrate or mission kill the vast majority of tanks out there, especially in the hull or sides.

    If you ever wanted a visual representation of "amateur" I present you...
    I'm no authority on tanks, but here is my take on the effectiveness of most APFSDS rounds.
    If you shoot a good, modern tank with a good APFSDS round like the one above, this is what I reckon is true. Sure there are flaws to my 10 minute bodge job, but I think it is largely and generally accurate.
