China started building tanks in the middle of the 20th century. First, the country set up of components for the Soviet , then started manufacturing the Type 59, a local variant of the T-54A. This was the vehicle that single-handedly kickstarted the Chinese tank industry – the tank with a Chinese body and a Soviet soul.

Subtitles are available in the following languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Turkish, Portuguese, Chinese.



  1. why couuldnt they just call it the WZ-122-1? theres no history of it being called a Object 122 MC

  2. In quick review: buy premium tanks, tree tanks are worst.

  3. I love my ZTZ 99

  4. I hope China gets a top tier light tank. Need it to reduce the airspawn for my F5e. I love mavericks!!

  5. If possible, please introduce the IFV of China/Taiwan….These IFVs are also amazing.

  6. L3 could easily knock out any mbt

  7. Day 1. Of asking for german mig29

  8. The real Slim Shady

    Tienamen Square 1989

  9. and if you are one of those who enter BR 7.0, you screwed up because it is against TopTier and dart ammunition

  10. Type 99A all the way! The culmination of combined russian protection and western mobility.

  11. Can I get out of the basement

  12. ZTZ 96 is my favorite

  13. Gavin is Bing chilling

  14. If ZTZ96 has -9kph reverse, why in the world does ZTZ96A, a supposedly upgrade version of it, only has -6kph???

    Could you double check and verify ZTZ96A’s reverse speed please?

    • I really only have seen the ztz96b with the good mobility

    • different transmission, lesser gear ratio = more torque but lower top speed, maybe there were complaints about the ZTZ96 having poor torque in certain conditions IRL that could not be replicated in WT, that seems most plausible

    • Because when a vehicle is “upgraded” that doesn’t mean every single component and part in it is upgraded. Upgraded also doesn’t mean faster.

    • My understanding when ZTZ96 upgrade to ZTZ96A is more emphasize on protect such as ERA on hull and arrow shape composite armour at turret. Also newer sabot round and gunner thermal imaging gunner sight. In the mobility still only with. 800hp engine, not improved. Type96A do incorporate some improvement technology from ztz99.

  15. WT farming the S credits

  16. Panzerkampfwagen VIII “Maus”

    Bing chilling ?

  17. Bunch of Wu Mao’s in here smh

  22. ZTZ99A man…that a whole other level Tank!

  23. Soviet body and Chinese soul

  24. I want ZTZ96B

  25. 69 always good

  26. My favourite Chinese MBT is ZTZ96B, so when will it come to WT?

  27. I’m a WZ305 FAN myself. Can’t go wrong with actually real flak

  28. The ZTZ96 Is Just great

  29. Garrett Urbaczewski

    Arcade assault modes are still unplayable. Fix the aim bot and bum rush of ai units.

    Or make a better mode with attacking players and defending ai.

  30. digital camouflage for all Chinese modern AFV is needed.

  31. I am hoping eventually Gaijin will add Pakistan sub tree to Chinese tech tree in game

    would want to try something like the Al-Zarrar, a Type 59 but fitted with 125mm.

    I love evolutions of chinese vehicles, and lots of them are found in foreign hands as well, chinese military industry are really the jump starters of modern military.

    and because of that they are very unique & really fun to play in the game.

  32. Emergency Broadcast System

    The thing belongs at 8.7 or higher even after the nerf

  33. μιχαλης καιμασιδης

    i like how they sometimes missname rounds like how they said “105mm APCR” in this vid

  34. ZTZ96 & ZTZ96(P)

  35. please update on submarines

  36. Btw, the object 122 MT is the predecessor to the ztz-88A look at their hull configuration and frontal armor angling and you will notice the ressemblances
