Initially, the WZ-120 (Type 59) tank was a copy of the Soviet medium T-54A tank. In later modifications the tank was upgraded. Between 6,000 and 9,500 vehicles of all variants were manufactured from 1958 through 1987.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good mobility
  • Strong turret front
  • Somewhat bouncy frontal hull armor
  • Strong top gun (best characteristics in damage, also it has good penetration)
  • Excellent camouflage


Cons:


  • Essentially no gun depression, which can be extremely aggravating, especially on hilly maps.
  • All higher tier guns have a long aiming time.
  • Less agile and less hull armor compared to Soviet counterpart, T-54.


Performance

  • The WZ-120 outperforms many tanks of its tier, and gives same tier medium tanks stiff competition due to its excellent top gun and mobility. However, like the T-54, getting the WZ-120 fully upgraded takes time and patience, but it is well worth the grind. Because of this tank's good mobility, speed, and powerful gun, it is a formidable opponent against many of its tier 9 counterparts.
