The Type 96 main battle tank (MBT) was derived from the previous Type 85-III series tank design, albeit with some modifications. It was displayed in 1999 during the military parade to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. Compared to the Types 85 and 88, the Type 96 features newly integrated thermal imaging/day sight, a Chinese infra-red/laser jamming system, a more powerful engine, improved electronics and a western-style turret.
