The Type 80-II is a tier 4 Main Battle Tank originating from China, and is sold by Zhang Feng. It can be unlocked from the Type 79, and leads to the Type 85-IIM.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Heavy armor: this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits.
  • HESH: can even penetrate armor with large hit angles.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

The Type 80-II is very much a jack of all trades vehicle, being average in many categories and only superior in a few.  With one of the best accuracy values at its tier and a turret that when upgraded allows for hull down gameplay, this vehicle is best played as a mobile armored sniper, possibly being used to flank slower and less accurate MBTs or apply its firepower at a distance other MBTs cannot sustain accuracy from.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent accuracy
  • Excellent view range for an MBT
  • Relatively mobile
  • Slat armor

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Below average alpha
  • Weak hull armor
  • Mediocre stock acceleration

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

Upgrading to the 12150ZL Diesel Engine will largely improve both acceleration and top speed, increasing flanking ability. Purchasing the Appliqué armor allows the turret to withstand much more punishment, and firepower upgrades will allow the vehicle to punch well above its stock weight.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit
  • Improved Spall Liner
  • Improved Filter Systems

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Philipp Holzklau, for improved crew stats, larger view range, and improved camo factor
  • Driver: Smooth Ride, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist

The Type 80-II initially follows the previous pattern of all steel vehicles established by the Type 59 series. It retains the general shape of Russian designs of the 1950’s and 1960’s, with the addition of cage armor around the turret to protect against ATGMs and HEAT shells.

Appliqué composite plating on the turret of the Type 80-II allows for much more effective defense in a hull down position.
