The network has photos of Chinese tank Type-96, which received a number of important improvements, reports the agency Messenger of Mordovia.

The Chinese have updated their tank Type-96


“The main difference from older models is the presence of new side screens and tracked belts. The Chinese have always had problems with old caterpillars - they often broke down, ”writes the author of the article, Lev Romanov.



Some changes have occurred in the design of the tower - a platform is visible in the stern, the purpose of which so far only has to be guessed. “Perhaps this is the basis for a remote-controlled machine-gun module,” the author cites the opinion of military expert Alexei Khlopotov.



But “the most important thing is that the tank received a new engine-transmission compartment, which is practically one-on-one, like the Chinese export tank VT-4”, which allows you to install an engine up to 1300 hp, Romanov notes.



“Judging by the on-board numbers on the vehicles imprinted on the photo, these tanks are already in service, and there is a possibility that they can be sent to Russia to participate in tank biathlon,” the article says.

      but HERE, if instead of biathlon they come to "mass tourism" on these tanks, then it's bad.

        Let first the tracks on all tanks be changed to new ones, otherwise they have a design from the times of the king of peas, the "tourists" will not go far. It is unlikely that there will be an opportunity to ride on the platform like this lol .

        They tried to travel to the Damansky Island "on vouchers", only it was windy, rains with "hail".
        And now, if they decide, the weather forecast will not be at all comforting "tornadoes".

          Nexus, all is well, but only you forgot the result, oh. Damansky is now the territory of China, and the division of the territory went along the territories occupied at the time of the armistice.

    Kag-ba they did not "update" it (but most likely they stupidly shoved devices stolen from someone into it), it will remain Chinese. With all the consequences that follow from this fact ... And to make it completely clear, a small anecdote on the topic ...

    Why don't the Chinese start a war with the USA? ... because any American shell is guaranteed to hit any Chinese tank ...
    Then why the US does not start a war with China? .. Because an American shell costs more than a Chinese tank ...

      Unlike China, in Russia the vast experience of tank building remained since the Soviet Union, based on combat experience. China has always stupidly copied other people's (mostly Soviet) samples. And to collect all the best, from the point of view of the Chinese, in world tank building, to make a tank and test it at the training ground, this is not quite right. You won’t be able to make a good tank without combat experience.

    The Chinese are good fellows. They act according to the principle "but Vaska listens and eats." While ours are measuring tricks with the Americans and other NATO members, the Chinese do not shine in vain, do not attract unnecessary attention to themselves, secretly sneak technologies and rivet tanks, airplanes, submarines. And also any computer technology. And they move space. And also nuclear power. I would not be surprised if the Chinese are the first to fly off the resources of Mars. Handsome men.

    Judging by the 6-roller running gear, the "kid" has gained weight.

    They do not stand still, well done. There are a lot of dough, which would not be modernized. And the Chinese have loot.

    At the last biathlon they drove without side screens to reduce the weight of the tank. Let's see how it will be.

    It will be very interesting if they drag them to a tank biathlon. I would like the Israelis to take part in their Merkava, it’s not a bad idea to invite South Korea, otherwise it’s interesting to read, but to see it live ..............

      It does not depend on us. Everyone was invited, and the participants could perform on their own equipment. But as you can see, who came, he came. Besides "GUSOK", the Chinese are unlikely to show anything new. They don't even show their new tanks, but they are , serial Type-98. There is a series of books "Red Dragon" about the PLA. There you can draw something. The book is not new, but in the analysis you can draw something.

    The topic is interesting, but I think that the article is weak, in passing it can still be viewed, but the article does not carry any serious information, but it's a pity. The topic is really interesting and lovers of tank biathlon, to whom I relate myself, too, it would be interesting that the Chinese came up with a new one. hi

      Are you the Chinese something new you want to spy? It’s useless. Everyone hides their own and those of others that they have managed to spy or steal. They will show only what they themselves want to show, for advertising or sale.
