Type 69 (Family)
The ZTZ69 (or Type 69) is a Chinese 2nd generation main battle tank put into service in 1974. An improved version of the Type 59, itself a T-54 derivative, the earliest models featured new night vision, fire control, and automotive equipment, as well as a new smoothbore gun. Upgraded models with improved firepower and protection have seen widespread export as well.
