CHAR DE BATAILLE CHINOIS ZTZ-99A

Description

The Type 99 or ZTZ99 is a Chinese third generation main battle tank (MBT). The tank entered People’s Liberation Army Ground Force (PLAGF) service in 2001. In the early 90’s China developed its first third generation design, the Type 90-II prototype series. The Type 90-II was developed by studying the T-72 tank. The Type 90-II’s features included a 125mm smoothbore cannon with an autoloader, modular composite armor and a centered driver position. While the Type 90-II series ultimately did not enter People’s Liberation Army (PLA) service, it saw success as an export tank and was also built under license in Pakistan as the Al-Khalid. The Type 98 or WZ-123 was China’s domestic Type 90-II derivative. It was first seen in rehearsals for the 1999 National Day parade and was officially revealed on 1 October 1999. It sported a distinctive appearance with the hull and crew layout similar to the Russian T-72 but with a welded angular turret more similar to Western designs. When the tank went into service it was renamed the Type 99. According to military information website Global Security, the Type 99 has a lengthened T-72 hull. An updated Type 99 model was officially introduced at the 2015 Victory Day Parade as the Type 99A. This variant had previously been used by PLA troops during the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) military exercises in 2014. Although the PLA has not distinguished between this variant and older models, some sources have named this latest variant the Type 99A (Scale : 1/35e)
