First seen a battlefields in 1958, the old but still venerable Type-59 Battlefighter Tank have been in reserve hands within China's force during the First Eurasian Conflict. There were 9,500 built by Norinco and First Inner Mongolia Machinery Factory, they have been serving various forces across Asia since their introduction, most of the number built have been serving the Chinese Army.

Currently they serve as the Iron Dragon PLA's light armour, but kept in reserves to back up their Type-79 Battlemaster brothers on the battlefield. Since the introduction of the Battlemaster Tank in the early 1980's, the Type-59 was utilized for combat reserves and even put on standby in the Chinese Royal Guard to help their fellow allies in homeland security.
