Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

The Type 85-IIM is one of the better T5 MBTs, with a strong DPM when fully upgraded, one of the fastest turret traverses of its tier, and a combination of relatively high camo and a good base view range. In combination with its strong turret and hull armor, it is a very versatile tank that can operate in a variety of roles.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Low profile relative to Western designs
  • Highly mobile
  • Strong turret armor

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Mediocre gun depression
  • Large lower front plate with weak protection

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

Firepower upgrades, starting with the Improved Fire Control, will allow the vehicle to punch much harder against opponents. While upgrading Smoke Grenades is useful, it shouldn’t be researched before Improved Fire Control.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Advanced Fire Control
  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit
  • Improved Spall Liner

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Philipp Holzklau, to improve the aim speed, vision range and crew stats
  • Driver: Smooth Ride, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist/Quick Draw

History[edit | edit source]

Developed as a response to the mass destruction of Iraqi T-72’s in the 1991 Gulf War, this vehicle combined the chassis of the Type 80-II and a heavily modified turret capable of housing a 125mm smoothbore cannon. While it never progressed past the prototype stage, it did form the basis of the Type 90 program, which was developed on a heavily modified Type 85 platform.
