Defense experts also have welcomed the new development as the new MBT would be an ideal and cheap replacement for Pakistan Army’s ageing second-line Fleets of T80UD , Al-Zarrar, Type 85 ,Type 69 and Type 59 Main Battle Tanks.

The Type 99  is a third-generation main battle tank (MBT) fielded by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army. It is one of many Chinese variants of the T-72 since it incorporates the autoloader, advanced Russian armor, hull, and the main gun from the Russian tank.

The new tank also has to be a response to the Indian T-90MS. India has started talks with Russia for the purchase of T-90MS main battle tanks.
