MIGleader said:Thats funny. i never felt the type 99 was ever meant to be mass produced. It's rather expensive. The type 96 is the one the PLA has set for mass production, while the type 99 is produced in limited amounts for elite units. Since these units contain china's best tankers, why not protect them?
i don't understand how the bustle mounted autoloader work...can someone explain it to me.
the crew are gonners any ways if a APFSDS round pentrate the amrour why bother to add extra protection if they will only delay production
MIGleader said:The 99 has ERA, the 96 does not. The 99 has an laser jamming deivce, the 96 does not. The 99 has n uprated engine compared to the 96. Even the gun is different. The 99's chassis is derived from the t-72, the 96's is from the 85 programm. Quite similar, huh?
MIGleader said:But the pla decided not to put all these extra features on 96 to cut down on cost. So if tis going to make the 99 the "Best", it might aswell give it all good features of a tank, not just some.
