Description: The Type 96A, also reported as Type 90 for export customers, Main Battle Tank (MBT) is an improved derivative of the Type 85 II tank which was developed on the basis of the Soviet-made T-54 chassis. After the Gulf War in 1991, the Chinese military realized that Type 88 was no match to Western-made tanks and launched the development of more advanced MBTs which led to Type 96 and Type 99. The Type 96A MBT, originally known as Type 85 III, was deployed by the People's Liberation Army (PLA) at the end of the 1990s replacing Type 59 and Type 69 in PLA's elite units.

The Type 96 Engineer Vehicle has been designed on the basis of the ZTZ-96 main battle tank to remove obstacles within the battlefield in support of Chinese armored formations. It features a multipurpose dozer blade, crane, and mine clearance plough. The new engineer vehicle entered service within the People's Liberation Army (PLA) before 2015.
