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]

With good mobility, DPM, and accuracy, this vehicle is a jack of all trades, capable of being a hull down defender or a flanking MBT. With a sub-five-second 0-32 km/h acceleration with retrofits, it has the speed to keep up with light tanks and AFVs, and the frontal armor to act as a spearhead.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • High DPM, especially when upgraded
  • Good on the move accuracy
  • Highly mobile with a good combination of hull traverse, acceleration, and top speed
  • Effective gun depression
  • The roof weakspot only take minor damage

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Lower front plate is vulnerable to penetration at a distance
  • Mediocre view range
  • Low alpha compared to the Type 85-IIM
  • ERA positioning is mostly ineffective

Suggested Research Order[edit | edit source]

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

Unlocking the 6TD Diesel Engine is basically a mandatory early upgrade, as it allows the vehicle to act as a fast flanker. Increased firepower in the form of DPM capabilities is another important focus. The ERA is expensive and ineffective, so this upgrade should be left for last.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Advanced Fire Control
  • 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]

Created from a heavily modified Type 85-IIM and infused with technology from Russia's T-72 program, the Type 90-II is a main battle tank that was developed in the early 1990’s in China. While the vehicle did not garner attention domestically, it was a popular export tank, being successfully marketed to multiple nations across Asia and Africa under various model names. After significant modification, the Type 90-II also became the basis for China's first third generation MBT, the Type 98.
