In 1957 a new light tank project was initiated by the Chinese government. Development of vehicle was completed in 1959. The new tank, weighing 16 tons, was equipped with a four-wheel torsion-bar suspension and a rear placement of the drive wheel, and mounted a 57-mm gun (later upgraded to 76-mm).

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • The tier 6 76mm gun has a fast-firing autoloader
  • Very low profile provides excellent camo and makes you a small target
  • Agile, even for a light tank


Cons:


  • Very low penetration with the 76 mm cannons heavily limits what you can target
  • Combat abilities are subpar by even light tank standards
  • Ammo Rack is easily destroyed by any gun over 100mm, resulting in an explosion even at full HP


Performance

The 59-16 fits your textbook definition of a scout tank. It sports both excellent maneuverability and a tiny profile, allowing it to either perform as a passive scout or an active scout. The small size and agility of the 59-16 can let you drive around a map, lighting up enemy positions as you use the terrain to keep yourself as hidden as you can. Equipping optics would be a great idea for this tactic. The same traits can let you be the first player to spot from a forward position, letting your team take out enemy tanks before they even have a chance to fight back. If you're doing this, it is best to hold your fire as well as bring along a camo net and some binoculars.
