Posting a lost image.
Don't think it was as large the last I checked. Also, China is evolving from a less developed to a more developed nation so you'll see a rapid rise in average height. It's already evident in recent surveys.It's actually too large. You can check some internal images. Too many space remains above the head of crews. 99A is as large as western tank but lighter, so less armor.
Lol.40 + years of no real battle experiences downgraded PLA back to peasant (soldiers) and office worker(officers)'s army. Better equipments cannot make up to it. So when they do not know how to fight, they act.
Hope they will not see real battle until AI/Robots take over. PLA is not ready for Taiwan for another 20 years.
maybe they can send some troops to aid Russia in the war to gain experience, that is another thought.
