    Wow! What a nice little tank. I would love to see this in-service with the Sri Lankan Army.

    Wonder if it includes a blow-out apartment for improved crew safety.

    Don't see why not, it's cheap, simple and easy to make.

    And Type 96A has only around 42 tonnes. So what is the role of this light tank actually? Is it the replacement for Type 96A? Please enlightened me.

    It is meant for mountainous road in High plateau of Tibet or the jungle and swamp land of Guangxi bordering with Vietnam

    Bridges has load limit and 9 ton difference could meant the tank will dunk in river or not So it does make a difference

    Another thing is dimension The road in mountainous road in Tibet is narrow and steep. Large tank and long gun barrel cannot negotiate those narrow and twisted road or climb steep hill. Even though the tank is transported by truck

    Another thing is ground pressure too high ground pressure and your tank will stuck in the mud Now how can you drive 60 ton tank in swamp land or jungle of SEA

    In this video the narrator claimed (if that really is the type 15 light tank) that all crew members will be equipped with VR glasses that can "see through" armor, just like F35 pilots, which should give them advantage over "traditional" tank crew. They can also acquire view from other tanks.

    And also, they should be able to connect to UAVs.
