Designed in the image of Soviet heavy machinery, this Chinese project was never completed. Read now to learn more about one of the history’s forgotten tanks.

From text

 Chinese designers considered several options for the main armament of the WZ-111. The proposed guns included the 130-mm M46, the 122-mm D-25TA and the 100-mm D-10T gun. Unfortunately, not enough credible data from the period remained to determine which of the options available was decided upon in the end.

 

Its a shame we get another 122 D-25 heavy like IS-6 and 112, if this 130mm was anything like one on SU-100Y it would be rather interesting. More damage, more pen, less rate of fire than 122 could be nice.

130mm gun would be nice to see on both 111 and 112 . Having previous kv-1s gun handling on even tier 8 premium tanks is completely ourageus .

the pic of the tank with the weight on the top looks like the Chinese were trying to copy the su100Y box tank :P

Think that gun is on the tier 9 WZ-111 1-4 instead.

 

Interesting read regardless, would also be nice to have more info on the 112 and 113(also some of the variants of the WZ-111 like the 1-4 or 5a).

I wonder if these articles are worded the same way on Asian servers... Wouldn't want to hurt their national pride now, would we?
