Chinese Main Battle tank? Where does it come from?

The Type 99, also known as ZTZ-99 and WZ-123, developed from the Type 98G (in turn, a development of the Type 98), is a third generation main battle tank (MBT) fielded by the Chinese People's Liberation Army. It is made to compete with other modern tanks. Although not expected to be acquired in large numbers due to its high cost compared to the more economical Type 96, it is currently the most advanced MBT fielded by China. The ZTZ-99 MBT is a successor to the Type 98G tank manufactured for the People's Liberation Army (PLA).


Chinese design battle tanks are heavily influenced by Soviet Union tanks. This is because many years ago when the communist party took over the throne, Soviet union had transferred a lot of their technology to the Chinese government, before the Chinese government had started to develop their tank back in 1977, various model of Soviet Union tanks were served in the Chinese ground battle fleet including the T-55, T-72 etc...


 The basic variant of the Type 99 series it has a laser defence system that can temporarily damage the enemy tank's optics. The latest variant that is in full service is the Type 99A2 with a 1,500-hp water cooled diesel engine and getting re-designed at some parts. The newest in trial is the Type 99KM.

The Type 99A2 has increased armor on the turret. The self-defense laser module has been replaced by an active defensive module. The ZTZ-99A2 also installed ERA on the front and side turret. The tank hull will follow the MBT 2000 configuration instead of the previously used hull.


Do you know what you are buying?

Basically, there are three different version of Heng Long tanks,

A). Standard tank with Nylon Tracks, Plastic Wheels and Plastic Gear Box (No Smoke generator + No Rx-18 circuit board). Keep in mind, this particular version is still using the older Rx-14 circuit board to keep the cost down. Therefore, you can pick one up easily at less than 60 pounds.

- After you bought the Standard Non Smoking version, and decided you want smoke unit. Unfortunately you CANNOT. That circuit board is not compatible with smoke Unit. It will ended up costing you another 20 pounds.

B). Standard tank with Nylon Tracks, Plastic Wheels and Plastic Gear Box (With Smoke generator + Rx-18 circuit board). This particular version has smoke generator factory installed smoking unit + Rx-18 circuit board. ( You can decide whether or not upgrade to PRO Metal upgrade version with this standard )

C). PRO VERSION with Rx18 circuit, smoking unit as standard equipment + Zinc alloy metal tracks, Zinc alloy sprockets, Ilder Wheels and Zinc alloy metal gear drivetrain. This version will cost you probably more than 120 pounds.


Why Heng Long tanks?

It is affordable !!

And Yet, it has almost every function you can find in a 400 GBp plus Tamiya Tiger tank. Or maybe more, it has smoking effect function, and shooting recoil function, which are not exist in Tamiya Tank.

What are improvement of these new Tiger in compare to the older version?

- New Rx-18 Circuit board, no soldering gun required. Just plug & play

- Precisely build in 1/16 Scale, for modelers, it would take some minor additional paint job to enhance the painting effect of the tank

- The tank is capable to move forward, backward, left, right, 360 degrees rotation both clockwise and anti-clockwise

- Turret can move up and down, from left to right at 320 degrees, the tank is equipped with Airsoft gear box, it can shoot BB Bullet up to 25 meters long. ( Ranging from 10m to 25m, depending on battery level & coil, this figure may vary )



As well as having great detail such as stowage boxes and front and rear machine guns, there are other features, like opening top hatch and also flashing led machine gun light on the front of the tank


It has full independent suspension on the wheels, the latest high torque motors, which give an (almost) realistic slow speed control. This is great when you look at all the movement the tank is capable of
It can move forwards, backwards, left and right and cope with climbing slopes/gradients of up to 35 degrees, assisted by the high grip, separate link tracks. The gun barrels elevates and descends.
there is even a working headlight, in case night time manoeuvres are required
