Wonder why they went to the expense of developing and fielding this new light tank but refused to give it hunter killer capability with independent commander and gun sights. Were the cost savings that significant?

how do we know that there is no hunter killer tech??
Commander's optics seem to be fixed like in Type 96. I guess Chinese army doctrine do not require it since the whole tank strategy is nearly always send them in waves and angle of focus for each individual tank is so small. Guess they consider the savings to be worth it. The high end tank type 99 series have always had independent sight though but gunner's sight is still fixed to the gun.

Is it just me or have the early examples, back in photos from a few years ago, had a different and a bigger commander's sensor on his cupola?
