The Type 99 is a tier 8 Main Battle Tank originating from China, and is sold by Zhang Feng. It can be unlocked from the 9910, and unlocks a tier 9 Unlock Token, which can be used on the Type 99A, PzH 2000 or WPB Anders.

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.
  • Override: this vehicle's engine can be switched to override mode, which will significantly increase speed and acceleration.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Lacking hit points and heavy armor, this vehicle is unsuitable for close range brawling and is better used as a flanker. A very powerful and fast reloading 125mm cannon can devastate enemy vehicles caught off guard.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • High mobility
  • Excellent DPM

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Lowest HP among the T8 MBTs
  • Poor gun depression
  • Sluggish aiming time

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

Having the lowest stock hit points of tier 8 MBTs means that adding a spall liner to reduce incoming damage is a must. As the Type 99 is all about firepower and mobility, upgraded ammunition should be researched after the spall liner.

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, Quick Draw
