Type-99 Main Battle Tank on Military Exercises in Forest

Type-99 main battle tank of  People’s Liberation Army   on military exercises in forest.

The Type 99 main battle tank is a further development of the Type 98 MBT. It is generally similar to the Type 98, but has a number of improvements. The Type 99 was revealed in 2000 and entered service with the Chinese Army in 2001. Only a limited number of these MBTs are operational (approximately 200), because of the high unit price. This main battle tank shows a mixture of Russian and Western influence in its design and technology.
