In China, declassified the latest modification of the tank Type-99G



In China, declassified the latest modification of the main combat tank Type-99G. As it became known, the Chinese armed forces used the latest modification of the most modern Type-99G (ZTZ99G) tanks during exercises near the borders with North Korea.

This was the first official demonstration of the Type-99G tank, as it was already in 2008 that the existence of a similar development of the Chinese military-industrial complex became known.

The Chinese state television channel confirmed the use of Type-99G tanks in Shenyang. The maneuvers of the armed forces took place in the period 10-17 December last year.

Previously, information about both Type-99G tanks and their tactical and technical characteristics was classified. It is known that these battle tanks weighing about 55 tons are armed with a ZPT98 125-mm smooth-bore cannon, capable of piercing the frontal armor of modern main battle tanks, such as M1 Abrams or the British Challenger. Weapon This type is also adapted for firing guided missiles.

Previous generations of the Type 99 tank, such as the type 99A1 and 99A2 type, have already been presented, but there is still no information about their widespread production or use outside of parades and official ceremonies. Type 99 (ZTZ-99) - a modern Chinese main battle tank, created on the basis of the prototype Type 98G.

    It is interesting to learn more.
    Although approximately you can imagine its performance characteristics and combat capabilities.
    It is unlikely that they knock out the capabilities of the "leopard" or "leclerc".

      A good tower reservation with active defense is good of course. But a tank is not only a good reservation ...

        I doubt that he had anything bad there. The development was long and would not go into series if it were not so. Yes, and who is without a flaw.

          The tank seems to be beautiful, but this is already halfway to the success of the design.

        Good turret armor with active defense

        Where did you see active protection ???

    Well, how to check the stale characteristics? They elect them there every 5 years, and you won’t know what exactly goes to the troops.

      "It is known that these battle tanks weighing about 55 tons are armed with a 98mm ZPT125 smoothbore cannon, capable of penetrating the frontal armor of modern main battle tanks such as the M1 Abrams or the British Challenger."

      This statement seems to me not quite correct, nevertheless, the possibility of breaking through the armor is determined not by the gun itself, but by its ammunition.

          I meant the type of ammunition and its characteristics, not a smooth barrel or rifled and 105 mm or 125 mm. To present the ability of a gun to penetrate frontal armor because the gun is simply "smooth-bore and 125 mm" is not entirely logical.

    it looks very much like Soviet tank models; the car boasts 1500 powerful diesel-powered water-cooled engines. The latest design was developed taking into account the experience of the Gulf War in the early 90's. Then the tanks of the Western powers very famously smashed the old Sotvetsky T-72, which were analogues of the Chinese main battle tanks. The task was to create a combat vehicle that could compete with the modern enemy on equal terms. Wise Chinese designers carefully studied the Soviet T-80 and German Leopard 2, copied all the best from them and blinded the T-99. We must pay tribute that the Chinese are not only able to copy, but also create their own. For example, the alloy that was used in the manufacture of the armor of the tank is still not known. For example, the armor withstand easily and without visible damage withstands 7 hits from a 125-mm gun of the T72 tank and 9 hits from a 105-mm gun from a distance of 1800 meters. This means the equivalent of 1200 mm thick steel armor.

    So, I found a picture and a person’s thoughts about this machine. hi
    As already mentioned, this machine is the deepest modernization of our T-72, and, according to Western analysts, is superior to modern Russian tanks.
    One of the most interesting and promising systems of the Chinese machine is the JD-3 laser active protection system. This system consists of a laser warning system and a quantum generator. Upon receipt of a signal about the irradiation of the tank with an enemy’s laser beam, the warning system generates a signal to turn the tower towards the detected source, then a low-power laser beam that detects the exact location of the target is turned on, after which the beam power instantly increases to a critical level and disables optical means or organs of vision of the enemy operator. Currently, none of the modern tanks are equipped with such a system.
    Another tank will be equipped with a new sight. 1500 hp engine gives the tank outstanding speed properties. According to the Chinese, the maximum speed of their tank will be at least 80 km \ hour.
    Like all former Soviet tanks on this machine, the tank is equipped with an 125 mm gun with automatic loader. Although the new armor-piercing shells with a depleted uranium core are classified, according to leaked data they also have outstanding properties. According to Western analysts, the Russian army does not have such ammunition.

      The tower is more reminiscent of a Leopard, which is only lightweight in appearance, the T-72 case, the T-72 caliber also, the filling is all its own from the color fuels of combustible PVC, perhaps about laser KAZ and super ammunition so far from the rumor area, nothing is said about protection against electromagnetic radiation although the tank of the new generation should be ready to counter the means of influence on the electronic filling. China generally gives rise to many tales among strangers.

      Money wound up, if money wound up and you do not think about security then you are Gaddafi wink
      They have a lot of neighbors in a big country, so they are rearming the army, and a trend has developed in Asia, they are putting everything in order as far as possible, they now have better opportunities than many

    China is arming itself very actively. You can’t look at it indulgently. Yes, they once copied our technology. but now they have gone far ahead of this. They take all the best and excel theirs. I remembered. In China, there is a ban on the sale of automobile engines with a capacity of over 500 hp to Russia. This is about copying technology. judging by the sound of the exhaust tank 99. his engine. 1500 liters with not weak. War ..... sad ...

    Indexing is carried out as for the German Messerschmitt-109 fighter, they have already reached the G index ... Every five-year period they write about Type 99, they have managed to reach bourgeois technologies using engines, they report to the world about a new achievement ...

    I wonder who writes ratings to them? How much does such a wunderpantsermachine cost and is it worth launching it into battle according to the criterion of "unacceptably expensive losses"? In general, the main thing is the crew that can squeeze everything out of the car ...

    Mdyaya !! If this is indeed so, it means that the Chinese managed to create what they had long sought for. And given the pace of production, it’s even hard to imagine how many Type-99G tanks will be put into service, say after 5 years.
