MBT-3000?

Type 99A2
Type 99A2...that engine bay looks remarkably like an M1 Abrams doesn't it?

Its definitely time to brush up on Chinese armor.  To be quite honest I've personally been less than impressed with what I'm seeing out of their industry.  Obvious copies...obvious variations on Western themes has had me recoiling in disgust instead of being curious about that nations armor development.

Now we have the MBT-3000.  Strategypage has a story on it here.  Its worth a read, but I'm still left confused.  We have the Type 99, the Type ZTZ99G, the Type 99A2  (seen above) and now the Type 3000.

I'm still not impressed but I will keep a closer watch on their work.

  1. Reminds me of the PLAN. No huge ship classes like the USN. But a few of this and a few of that.

  2. Looks like another T-72 with some extra armor slapped on
