If you look at the front, the Type 99's armour has a gentle slope; the Type 96 has a slope and then flattens out very quickly toward the turret.

but T-96G upgrade won't enough for survive longer in battlefield, they need APS system that can destroy incoming tank round or AT missile. There possible (if China plunged into conflict with neighbour state) in the future this tank will be facing with western standard tank.

Dear Sirs:

I for one believe that China has taken the right path in it's development of it's armored forces.

Despite the fast growth of the Chinese economy and corresponding increases in the PLA's budget, there is still not enough money to fund everything.

Despite the fact that I am a fan of armor and armored warfare, we must face the facts that tanks can no longer dominate the battlefield as they did in WWII.

Even with combined-arms strategy and the re-organization of the army into smaller units with greater mobility and fire-power, the dominant factors will be air power and striking power (rockets and missiles).

The step-by-step improvements of the Type 96 and Type 99 are a recognition of this shift in emphasis and strategy.

The money is better spent on missile and rocket-fired PGM's and other strike assets cued by satellites and UAV's in what the Soviets liked to call reconnaissance-strike complexes.

That is the future, like it or not, in more and more situations we will rely less and less on heavy armor.

I am a little bit off topic here, but does China have their own version of arena that is confirmed by "spy" picture or that was displayed to the public?

What is this "arena" you are talking about?

And it would be really necessary, to know to differenciate the 96 and 99 to start with.

I think the Chinese is going to supply South Sudan Chinese arms too.. Soon it will be VT1A vs Type96...
