    The Type 69 Mk. II G is a rebuilt Type 69 II with modern armaments and combat systems supplied by China. The “G” suffix is abbreviated for “Gai” in Chinese or simply “Modified”.

    All Bangladesh Army Type 59/69/79 MBTs are being upgraded to this new standard at present locally at the Army’s Heavy Workshop facility, which is capable of building and modernising tanks, armoured vehicles and artillery systems.

    The main features upgraded Type 69 Mk. II G includes:

    • 120 mm smoothbore main gun (Fires all NATO rounds)
    • Capability to fire ATGM from main gun
    • Gun stabilisers (vertical, horizontal)
    • Modern fire control system
    • Combat data link
    • Extensive ERA (Explosive Reactive Armour) protection
    • NBC suite
    • 1,200 hp diesel engine
    • Thermal sights
    • Semi-automatic loader
    • Laser warning receiver
    • Laser range finder
    • Range of new ammunition
    • Fire fighting equipment
    • Communications equipment
    • Navigation equipment + GPS
    • Jamming equipment

    The first batch of Type 69 Mk. II G main battle tanks participated in the Independence Day parade at the national parade square, located in Tejgaon, Dhaka.

    Modernisation of the Type 69 tanks were a milestone in the history of the Bangladesh Army as it demonstrated the capability of its engineers who were successfully able to convert an ageing platform to a modern tank capable of combat against all tanks in the enemy’s inventory.

    I was wondering does these tanks stand any chance against Al-Khalid or Arjun tanks?

    Wow, so does our forum has an automatic mechanism to efface the names of other forums even in URLs?

    leon, don't you have links to sites other than forums?

    Anyway, my first guess is that the update brings it to the same class as AK. AZ has only a 730bhp engine but this heavier gai tank has a 1200bhp one. But the quality of the FCS and the armour are the decisive factors.

    The interesting thing is the 120mm gun. Is it western or a chinese knockoff of the german gun? China itself doesn't use 120mm.

    The nice thing about the deal is that BD industry is doing it itself.
