The latest Type 99A handover ceremony seems to be back in 2020

It is likely that it no longer makes the news like it used to , at the pace of about 1 to 2 brigade a year ever since 2014 , it is likely about 30% to about 40% of PLA heavy brigades are now 99A equipped , just about every army group has few brigade of them,so it not that big of a news any more.
But the type 99 without the A is likely to have ceased production since the factories moved to 99A production , the same goes for type 96.
The only new tank that is going in PLA right now are 99A , 15 .
