A new pic :china:
no,that pic is in a factory
Uhmm no it's not I have already been through man of the obvious clues but if you can't see the pixalation fine I will go through the physical reasons why it is CGI.
First off, see that shroud covered heavy machine gun above the commanders cupola? Those are not fitted at the factory or even depot. That piece of equipment was likely as not made 30 years ago and has already been assigned to the unit slated to recieve new T-96's in place of the their older tanks, because it is already issued to an older tank or assigned to a tank crew. You don't replace machine guns every time you build a new tank. There are still M-2 HMG's in US service that saw duty in WW2. There are HMG's in the PLA that fought vs Vietnam etc.
Secondly, those tanks tracks stacked like cordwood, thats a big no no. Each section of track pad has a track guide that sticks up like a giat tooth. These guides run inbeteen the road wheel sets and help the track on the rollers and not simply sliding off with every turn. Laying them one on top of the other will bind them together. Standard practive for new tracks is to either stack them in indiviual blocks or roll them and place them on pallets. In the CGI picture how exactly ar ethe workers suppose dot get the tracks apart with a minimum of effort and interferance with other activites going on around them if the tracks are all bound up?
This wasn't a single photo but originally came from a set that had many more with different angles and tanks unless someone went to the trouble of reproducing the whole facility (I seriously doubt).
I've seen the series and it is all CGI. Not even very good CGI compared to som eof the newest stuff but not bad for when it came out. But it is CGI
Note the Shtora-like countermeasures on the Type 96 and also the thermal sight .:china:
That's a really nice picture. You can see the IFV 96, a new light tank (wonder if that'll replace the Type 63A), and the type 96G MBT. Do they have to use the red ladders to get up on the new AAV? The farthest left seems to be an engineering vehicle, followed by an APC, then an IFV (chassis looks different than the Type 96 IFV but turret looks the same), and a light tank. They all seem to share the same chassis.
IFV 96????? i only heard about the type 97IFV (bmp-3 style turret) but i think in the picture, that is a type 63A amphibious tank
I meant to say Type 97 IFV, just got a little lazy in writing "type." They should just call them IFV 97 for Type 97 IFV, amphibious tank 63A for type 63A amphibious tank, and so forth. For some reason, the hull of that light tank appears bigger than that of type 63A amphibious tank. Did they make a new chassis for the type 63A? The new, universal chassis is also used on the Type 97 IFV to the left of the light tank.
Price is nowhere near 1 million USD (official price has been quoted as from a Nato source 2005 at 4 million ren that puts the 96 at roughly 500/550 000 USD) and you have to divide of the 1 million the export AV.
Now the fact is the reality of the ren exchange rate is also a bit blurred. But yet it costs to the chinese half a million for that tank./
