I like the tank in the background putting its turret into orbit.

The Chinese don't have any T-72s. The Russians were miffed that the Chinese got a hold of an intact T-62 during their 1969 border conflict, so no more tanks for China. China did buy/borrow some T-72s from Iraq and other countries, took some measurements, filed some serial numbers off and whiffed it into what eventually became the Type 99 (ZTZ-99). It has a bigger turret than the T-72, but similar round storage, so it may be prone to the same blessings from St. Javelin.

As Frank3k said, the ZTZ-99 is based off the T-72. The ZTZ-99 did retain the same autoloader so is prone to the flying turret syndrome as seen in Ukraine.

It is a nice looking tank though.

I see Xi Jinping is a great fan, otherwise why are all the tank crews doing the Macarena? ??? ;)

I am sure they are paying very close attention. There is no land bridge to Taiwan so they need an air and sea assault before any tanks get involved.

That one I showed above in the previous post is actually the export version for Thailand which they renamed the VT-4. Those are Thai troops. There are some minor differences in the VT-4 but it is basically the same as the ZTZ-99.

This is the actual Chinese ZTZ-99.

Ah, yes, but the Macarena training comes free with the tanks, it's part of the induction! ;D

Would be fun to see a few thousand troops doing the Macarena like a flash mob.

Not sure if it's Trumpeter of Hobbyboss, but:
Confirmed "model Company" projects that will be out soon :  Lav 6.0 , Leo 2 wisent, and Bergpanzer 3 with slat armor.

Add VW/Bombardier Iltis (several variants), LAV 8x8 variants (Possibly Bison). The Leopards are the priority.
