Rare Tank Spotlight: Type 59

You've heard the legends, read the stories, and perhaps even seen it in action! Console battiefields are about to feel a dynastic presence with the arrival of this exceptional Chinese Premium tank. Ladies and gentlemen, enter the Type 59 !

The Type 59 is an exported facsimile of the famous Soviet T-54 , playing similarly, too. Like most medium tanks, the Type 59 can easily traverse long distances to shore up the defense, or be the deciding factor on the assault. This tier VIII machine has an exceptionally strong frontal turret armor, which can bounce almost anything short of the ISU-152's BL-10 (what can?). Though the turret armor is what makes the Type 59 great, its sloped hull is nothing to laugh at either. The 59 is a proven brawler, capable of overpowering weaker opponents through the use of proper armor angling and making every shot count.

The 59's 100mm gun can rip apart enemy HP like a wolf in the hunt! Like all medium tanks , put your gun to better use by taking shots at the enemy sides or rear. In terms of the "jack-of-all-trades" medium tank mentality, the Type 59 is as close to that as they come!

Put simply, you won't want to miss this. If you have any lingering doubts, keep in mind the Type 59 won't make it to the Chinese branch, and comes with preferential matchmaking seeing up to tier IX battles!

Happy Lunar New Year, tankers!
