    The type 96 tank could be sold to plenty of other African countries, as well as exporting warships Sudan is a good customer.

    So it's battle-proven! Hope it will charge "Rafale Price" of the equivalent of $120m per piece.


    ...second thought, even Africaners are not that dumb to pay "Rafale Price" as some do... :rofl:

    Good job. We shouldn't antagonize the South Sudanese too much because they acquired the lion's share of oil after division, but then we can simply supply them as well. Break the West's monopoly on weapons sales.

    It is definitely very interesting, i have seen it this morning, but i chose to not post it since it is really tired to see that every China-related achievement becomes a trolling fest. :coffee:

    Those are the basic variant, without the upgraded armor and electronics seen on the Type 96G

    After the initial hit , it's sequelae, the loaded ammunition explodes along with the fuel on board.
    It's just like fireworks for you,if you are not sitting inside.
