    If you look closely at earlier pics in the thread, the tank has been seen more often than not with a commander's sight resembling that on the Type-99 series. PLA is still cheap and all, but I think this is just a case of them not bothering to have them installed for the parade tanks for whatever reason. The parade tanks also happen to be missing the 35mm AGL and some applique armor.

    very nice machine. I believe the future is for light tanks. and with introduction of more compact and remotely controlled guns. this tank can really be the basses for next generation of PLA tank force.

    I scrolled back all the way to page 38 and I need a bit of clarification.
    Is the turret of the VT-5 completely different than the in-service ZQT-15? if that's even the name at all?

    Can someone give me a tldr for the new tanks and how they compare to the old ones? In my mind there are a quality type 99, a quantity type 96 and a new light tank for mountains.

    Pretty much on the money. Complexities are rife but I'd say this is a good summary :p

    A different armor package (note the slat armor). Perhaps an upgrade or for urban warfare?
