The Pakistani Al-Khalid “Immortal Tank”. A joint 1990s project between China and Pakistan, it was at first mistaken for an attempt at copying the M1 Abrams due to it’s profile. Designed to be easily adapted to a variety of engines and components from multiple nations depending on who purchased it, it is considerably lighter than most western tank designs. It’s main armament is a 125mm smootbore autoloading gun that can also fire wire-guided anti-tank missiles.
