Historical information (in English):
As relations between the USSR and the PRC deteriorated at the end of 1959, the PRC leadership realized the risk of being left without Soviet scientific and technical assistance in the field of armored vehicles. It was decided to develop an alternative medium tank based on the proven Type-59 base using technologies and solutions from other sources.

Crew 4 people: Commander; Gunner; Driver; Loader (Radio Operator).

  1. Drugged Type 59 in tier 9! With an oversized Soviet 100 mm U8TS gun and a fantasy turret! Another WG fantasy tank and the many sheep pour their money into WG, play this endlessly because the player base is so stupid that they buy all the garbage, historical things are no longer attractive!
