The Type-98 is a Chinese third generation main battle tank.

Design

The Type-98 MBT is armed with a fully-stabilized 125-mm smoothbore gun, fitted with an autoloader. It has a maximum rate of fire of 8 rounds per minute. It is capable of launching anti-tank guided missiles in the same manner as ordinary projectiles. China manufactures these missiles under license. These missiles can be used when the tank is stationary and can also target low-flying helicopters. Their maximum range of fire is 4-5 km.


Secondary armament is similar to all Chinese MBTs and consists of coaxial 7.62-mm machine gun and another 12.7-mm machine gun, mounted on top of the roof.


The Type 98 main battle tank has an all-welded hull and turret. Its armor protection was improved over the previous Chinese MBTs. Vehicle is fitted with NBC protection and automatic fire suppression system. It is worth mentioning, that the Type 98 is fitted with active laser protection system. It uses a high-powered laser to disrupt missile guidance signal, disable observation optics and damages eyesight of enemy gunner.


Chassis of the Type-98 tank closely resembles that of the T-72. Vehicle is powered by a diesel engine, developing 1 200 hp.
