Hm... It looks not so bad... for a 60 year old tank...
Is it some kind of modernized?
Yep. Features a new gun, add on composite armor, computerized FCS(And all other Gen-3 stuff) And oddly a 60mm mortar.
The mortar gives it a bit of a multi role I'd say.
Yeah it sure is formidable when you have enough of them.
Looks a hell of a lot better than some other countries' T-55s. Some have made almost no effort to modernize them what so ever.
I doubt it could resist any kind of modern KE penetrator but it surely can resists RPGs and maybe some weak HESH / HEAT.
Also it actually looks like a modern chinese tank like the Type-98 or 99.
Given the fact it has been uparmroed with composite(Which by the way, came form Israel), it should be able to take a couple of hits.
hehe it has a gun cosy
