This mod is for all the players frustrated with the cartoony nature of Zero Hour units and buildings. We intend to replace every fanciful unit in Zero Hour with its closest possible real world equivalent, without changing the unit's capabilities.

It is an excellent looking model with further improvements by Keksz. For those who are curious this is the Type 99A1/ZTZ-99A1 variant which is the variant already out of production but still comprises the majority in service. The Type 99A2/ZTZ-99A2 is in mass production and will supplement the Type 99A1/ZTZ-99A1. For those who would like to see the differences you can look at this side profile (Top is 99A1 and Middle is 99A2):

The Third is an unknown light tank mounting a 99A2 turret. It was first seen on pictures being transported to Tibet through the railway.

Keksz I see the Tank crew is wearing an interesting camouflage pattern. Are you basing it off the Type 07 Digital camouflage pattern ?

My mistake. I saw the "By: Keksz" and assumed it was Keksz's improvements.

Nevertheless it's an impressive improvement. The beauty is in the details.

However I'm not sure about the camouflage pattern on the Tank Crew member. It looks like the Russian KLMK pattern here:

I would recommend it to be the Type 07 Digital Camouflage pattern as seen from this youtube video:

Youtube.com

Note: Skip to 1:01 and watch from there.

That's the Type 87 Woodland camouflage:

Sinodefence.com

It's still in use but the Type 99 battalions and units don't use that camouflage pattern. They use the Type 07 Summer/Woodland digital camouflage pattern:

The Type 07 camouflage patterns are replacing the Type 99 camouflage series since 2007.

BossGeneral Nov 20 2012, 10:02pm replied:

Type 99A1/ZTZ-99A1 variant. This photo would date prior to the introduction of Type 07 or mass acceptance of the Type 07 pattern. If I was to give it a rough estimate perhaps sometime between 2007-2008

"It's still in use but the Type 99 battalions and units don't use that camouflage pattern. They use the Type 07 Summer/Woodland digital camouflage pattern:"

I was referring to the crew and not the tank itself. PLA vehicles still use a Three color tone pattern for Vehicles similar to that depicted here:

Dl.zhishi.sina.com.cn

Some vehicles have been seen with a two color tone pattern and even a four color tone pattern.

I agree. It's a beautiful tank and also one of my favorites. It's a mix of Western and Eastern technologies into one tank that gives it the beautiful appearance it has.

Foundation is already there (the chassis and turret). It would need to modified so that minimizes the work required for it.
