Both available rounds are Chinese versions of Soviet PG-9 and OG-9 rounds and thus have identical performance.

Comparison with analogues

Type 85 is a Chinese version of Soviet 2A28 Grom cannon. The only difference is that Type 85 retains autoloader when "ZBD86 Late" modification is installed, while 2A28 loses it after BMP-1P modification.

Usage in battles

Describe the cannon/machine gun in the game - its distinctive features, tactics of usage against notable opponents. Please don't write a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought.

History

Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of the weapon in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the weapon and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Weapon-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />.

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
