Light Tank: WZ-132

WZ-132

The order for the WZ-132 tank was placed in 1964. The design was based on the WZ-131, but with the goal of enhancing firepower and armor protection. A few prototypes were built before the project was canceled in the late 1960s. All prototypes were destroyed during Chinese nuclear weapon testing.

Characteristics for a vehicle with basic configuration and a crew with 100% qualification.
