Manufacturer: NORINCO - China North Industries Group Corporation - CNGC  
Product type: Armoured Vehicles  
Name: Main battle tank  

The VT2 Main Battle Tank (also known as Type 96A ) is recently developed by NORINCO by employing numerous latest technologies.

The VT2 main battle tank is equipped with an advanced Image Stabilized Fire Control System (ISFCS) as well as a fully stabilized 125mm gun and advanced ammunition. These ensure VT2's high first-round hit probability against both stationary and moving targets no matter the platform is static or on the move.

In addition, VT2's sufficient maneuverability attributes to a VI2 turbo-charged diesel engine, developing 800hp power and coupled to a manual shifting planetary transmission gearbox.
