Amid continuing tensions with India in eastern Ladakh, the Chinese military has deployed its deadliest Type 99A tank to the Karakoram Hills. According to the Chinese government newspaper Global Times, this Chinese tank was deployed at an altitude of about 5,000 meters. China also recently included the first batch of its new Type 15 tank which will enter the battlefield in conjunction with the Type 99A. The Chinese newspaper said the Type 99A tank was China’s deadliest tank in terms of firepower and armor. The Type 15 tank is capable of attacking very quickly. Let’s see where this Chinese tank is in front of the Indian T-90 tank.
Russian and German tanks are copied by Chinese tanks
Chinese experts say the Type 99A heavy main battle tank is not very effective in eastern Ladakh due to lack of oxygen and hilly terrain. However, the unmatched strength of the Type 99A is crucial. Chinese experts have said that if a Type 15 light tank is trapped during a war, a Type 99A tank can land on the battlefield to help it. On the other hand, independent experts claim that this main battle tank from China is no weaker than any tank from America or Russia. He said that this tank in China was third generation and had lethal ammunition, a large gun and an excellent fire control system and advanced electronics. The Chinese Type 99A tank is built by replicating the Russian T-72 and the German Leppard 2 tank. This Chinese tank was first inducted into the military in 2001.
Chinese Type 99A tank heavier than Indian T-90
The Chinese Type 99A tank is heavier than the Indian T-90, which was deployed by the Indian military in eastern Ladakh to respond to the daring dragon. While the T-90 tank weighs 48 tons, the Type 99A tank in China weighs 57 tons. Experts say the tank which is lighter than the hills of Ladakh will be more efficient. In this case, the Indian tank is heavier than the Chinese tank. The Chinese and Indian tanks both rest on a 125-millimeter cannon. This makes it easier to target enemy tanks. It is claimed that China has prepared uranium-based munitions for its tank that can destroy any tank for about a mile and a half. Chinese and Indian tanks are capable of firing anti-tank missiles. With this help, long-range targets can be targeted and low-flying helicopters can also be destroyed.
Good electronics on T-90 in a Chinese tank
The tank of the export version of the Russian-made T-90 does not have a very good material, but it improved to a large extent after the installation of the Kalina targeting system. China is at the forefront of electronics. According to experts, a new infrared tracking system has been installed in Chinese tanks, which helps them easily drive off enemy tanks and is believed to be better than the T-90. The T-90 tank and the Chinese tank are equipped with superior safety equipment. The Indian T-90MS tank is equipped with a missile system that protects it from anti-tank missiles. The Chinese tank has a laser alert system that notifies its tank commander when the laser is targeted. This gives the tank commander a chance to overtake his tank. The T-90 tank has a Shora active protection system which not only blocks the laser but also fires laser blocking grenades which emit smoke.
Indian tank at speed behind Chinese Type 99A tank
The Chinese Type 99A tank is ahead of the Indian T-90 tank in terms of speed. The speed of the Chinese tank is 50 miles per hour, while the Indian T-90 tank can travel on the road at a speed of 42 to 45 miles per hour. T-90 tanks and Type 99 tanks can travel approximately 300 miles once the tank is full. The technology of the Type 99A tank has not yet been given by China to any country, but a lot of information about the Indian tank is in China. While the Chinese tank has a 1,500 horsepower diesel engine, the Indian tank has an engine of around 1,000 horsepower. Overall, the Chinese tank is quite modern, but the Indian T-90 tank has the power to destroy it. This is the reason why India has deployed T-90 tanks in eastern Ladakh to meet the challenge of China.
