Description

This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.

The ZTQ15 light tank was developed by the People's Republic of China, with a weight of 33 to 36 tons. The environment in which 50-ton-class main battle tanks can be operated is limited in China, and the Type 62 light tank was operated in the water town areas of southern China and the plateaus and mountainous areas such as Tibet; the ZTQ15's development began after opinions came in from the field that the Type 62 was too old. The ZTQ15's main mission is infantry support and reconnaissance missions, and it's armed with a 105mm rifle cannon. This gun is a new improvement of the 105mm 81 rifle for 59-II tanks, which is a licensed production of the Royal Ordnance 105mm tank gun L7. It is also equipped with an unmanned gun mount (RWS) as a secondary weapon, including a 12.7mm heavy machine gun, an automatic grenade launcher, and a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun. The crew consists of a commander, a gunner and a driver, and the tank seems to be equipped with an NBC defense system, air conditioning equipment, and oxygen cylinders for high-altitude activities. As for mobility, it is equipped with a 1,000-horsepower engine at the rear, can run at a maximum speed of 70km/h, and is equipped with a twin turbo in consideration of operation in a thin-air environment such as highlands.
