Features[edit | edit source]
- Heavy armor: this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits.
- High caliber: the high caliber weaponry deals an increased damage.
Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]
Lacking hit points and heavy armor, this vehicle is unsuitable for close range, front-on brawling, and is better used as a flanker. The 9910's excellent mobility allows it to circle heavier MBTs and hit them in weak areas. Its solidly accurate gun also makes it a viable medium range sniper against higher tier vehicles. Its limited gun-depression can be countered with its high-penetration ATGMs.
Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]
Pros[edit | edit source]
- Accurate gun
- Very high mobility/maneuverability
- Relatively high DPM
- Bouncy turret
Cons[edit | edit source]
- Lowest HP among the T7 MBTs
- Armor is mediocre for tier 7 MBT: weak lower plate, ATGM vulnerability
- Poor gun depression
- Breach damaged often (PvE)
- Turret ring damaged often (PvE)
Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]
Having the lowest stock hit points of tier 7 MBTs means that adding a spall liner to reduce incoming damage is a must. The 150HB Diesel Engine will improve maneuverability around enemy vehicles. Improving DPM with better ammunition is also a priority that should be researched after the spall liner.
Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]
- Advanced Muzzle Reference System
- Improved Filter Systems
- Improved Gun Breech
- Improved Pioneer Tool Kit
- Improved Spall Liner
Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]
- Commander: Philipp Holzklau, to improve repair speed and module damage
- Driver: Smooth Ride, Off-Road Driving
- Gunner: Sharpshooter, Quick Draw

|The Type 98 is heavily based off the T-72, and shares many of its internal workings. With an upper glacis consisting of composite armor and a turret consisting of high hardness steel, it is not as well armored as contemporary tanks. The chassis has composites on the upper glacis, and the rest consists of high hardness steel.|

History[edit | edit source]
The 9910 is a Chinese main battle tank based off the prototype Type 90 series of vehicles. Its design focuses on combining the general armor and crew layout of the Russian T-72 and T-80U, but includes a turret shape reminiscing modern Western tank designs, such as the M1 Abrams and the Leopard 2. While this vehicle served as the first of China's third generation tanks in production, it was soon overshadowed by a modified version, the Type 99. Currently, all 9910’s produced by China have been upgraded to the Type 99 standard. Production numbers of the 9910 are unknown due to the rapid change to the Type 99, and the retroactive upgrading of China's Type 98 arsenal.
