"The East is Red" is total conversion focused on creating atmosphere of high-tech modern war with maximum tactical differences between confrontational factions (Russia and China).
非常好！Type 59 FTW !
The Type 59 was the worst tank in the history of reality!
I don't think it's much worse than an ordinary T-55.
The T-59 was alot worse than the t-55. The T-55 was a good tank but the t-59 was crap e.g the aming mecanism was useless and firing on the move was a waste of time. My evidence is that during one of the pak-indian wars the paks used t-59's and the indians used t-55's and the indians won all of the tank battles.
The Type-59 Tank is a much better version of the original T-54/55.The basic version had a laser rangefinder, hydraulic servo-system, primitive fire control, automatic fire suppression system, and rubber track skirt. The Type 59-I includes several versions with different armour and fire control configurations.Type-59 never faced T-55 in any Indo-Pak battle.
