Hi-Res photo of Type 99A prototype. Taken around 2007 during testing.
Really wish it kept its L/54 gun. Would have had improved firepower. Hopefully it makes a reappearance on the newer versions of the 99A as it is still in production. Also, which ERA type is mounted around the turret bustle?

5: Purchase of VT4 is one component of a comprehensive upgradation package which also includes artillery, APCs and air defense system
VT 4 is superior to T 90MS only in your and Chinese fanboys dream.
