Development began in 1962 on a new medium tank based on the Type 59. The new tank was expected to feature improvements in firepower and armor protection. However, the project was canceled shortly after. Some technical innovations were applied later, in the development of the Type 69 tank. All 121 tank prototypes were destroyed during Chinese nuclear weapon testing.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Relatively thick hull armour and can bounce shots from even TDs if angled well
  • Thick turret armour offering great protection at range but can be easily penetrated through the poorly angled turret cheeks a
  • Great traverse and turret traverse speed
  • Excellent camouflage values
  • Highest alpha damage for a medium tank


Cons:


  • Sluggish acceleration due to higher than average ground resistances
  • Terrible gun depression of 3 degrees
  • Lowest penetration and shell velocity of all tier 10 medium tanks.
  • Does not have APCR as default ammunition
  • Poor aim-time and on-the-move dispersion


Performance

The 121 is superficially similar to the T-62A, being one of the many tanks descended from the T-54. It has near identical camo values, which are excellent, similar hull geometry, and similar hard stats (engine power, front turret armor). However, the lower gun depression and high alpha/low penetration gun make it a completely different vehicle. It's ideal for those who wished they had a T-62A configured for brawling. Close to mid-range is where the 121 outperforms the T-62A. In comparison, the T-62A's shell velocity is much higher (due to lower caliber and standard APCR ammo) and the tank is more agile. The 121's slower-moving shells, longer aim time, and non-existent gun depression make it sub-par at long-distance sniping. However, the 121's accuracy is still quite decent for a chinese tank, especially in comparison to its predecessors.
