Historical Reference

Development of a lightweight version of the Type 59 tank started in 1957. The new tank was designed to fight in the mountainous and boggy terrain of South China. The first prototype was built in 1962. Later the vehicle underwent several modernizations. A special game modification of this vehicle, the Type 62 Dragon, features some national flavor: an image of a traditional Chinese dragon covers its hull and turret.
