World of Tanks Type 59 – 6 Kills 6,8K Damage
Medals received: Lehvaslaiho’s Medal, Confederate, Steel Wall, High Caliber, Top Gun
The Type 59 is a Chinese tier 8 premium medium tank.
Chinese medium tank. Initially, the vehicle was a copy of the Soviet medium T-54A tank. The Type 59 entered service in 1959. The first tanks manufactured had no gun stabilizer or night-vision device. Later the vehicle underwent several modernizations. Between 6,000 and 9,500 vehicles of all variants were manufactured from 1958 through 1987.
This tank was removed from the in-game store on 16 January 2012. The decision was made “to ensure a healthy gameplay balance at higher tiers, and also to encourage a wider variety of tier 8 medium tank usage.” It last appeared in the gift shop in August 2012. Though not available for traditional purchase, it frequently is the reward for first place in official competitions and tournaments.
Considered one of the best tier 8 premium tanks, the Type 59 combines thick frontal armor with a reliable gun and excellent mobility. Because of its large spread of features and lack of specialization, the Type 59 fills the ‘pocket heavy’ role of the tier VIII premiums and very often performs better than expected in 1-on-1 fights with tier VIII mediums and light tanks.
