Battlefield 2: Modern Combat
The Type 98 is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 2: Modern Combat.
The Type 98 serves as the PLA counterpart to the USMC M1A2 Abrams and the EU Leopard 2A6. It has two positions: the driver and the turret gunner. The driver operates the vehicle and its main gun with 100 rounds while the turret gunner has a Type 85 HMG with 1000 rounds. The Type 98 can easily take out light armored vehicles such as the HMMWV, Eagle IV or even the M6 Linebacker, but it can be countered by Engineers with rocket launchers or the Attack Helicopters.
The Type 99 MBT is a vehicle featured in the multiplayer of Battlefield 4, serving as the PLA's Main Battle Tank. It was first seen on the map Siege of Shanghai in the Battlefield 4: "Best Moments" Multiplayer Gameplay Trailer.
Numerous tanks can be seen during the Shanghai mission; Recker must destroy two of these tanks before boarding the boat to escape to the Valkyrie. More can be seen during the Singapore mission, as Recker drives an M1 Abrams and engages these tanks in the city streets.
