History[]

Class: Main Battle Tank
Developed: 1980s
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: N/A
Operators: China

Originating as a pure copy of the Soviet T-54A, which was imported to and later mass-produced in China in the 1950s to replace the aging Type 58 (an imported T-34), the Type 59 Main Battle Tank gradually evolved into quite a different vehicle.

The Type 59-IIA is one of the evolutions of the Type 59 Main Battle Tank, which in turn is a Chinese T-55 copy from the 1950s. The Type 59 was produced in very large quantities but eventually became obsolete, leading to a number of attempts to upgrade its performance. This variant features a 105mm rifled gun as well as a suite of modern western electronics.

Vehicle Traits[]

  • Armored: This vehicle's armor can withstand a lot of punishment, allowing it to survive even serious firefights.
  • HESH Rounds: This vehicle can fire special Squash Head rounds. These are extremely effective against angled armor that is typical for Soviet tanks.
  • Smoke Generators: This vehicle generates smoke all around it and lays down smoke cover by driving forward.
