Al Khalid (MBT 2000) Main Battle Tank-Pakistan
















Production Notes:
Produced in conjunction with China's NORINCO (China North Industries Corporation). The main battle tank features an automatic loader, negating the need for another crewman in the turret. NBC system and explosive reactive armor provide battlefield survivability. It should be noted that the Al Khalid is the same weapon system that China produces as the Type 85-II. The Pakistani system was once known as the MBT 2000.

The fire control system is completely computerized and features stabilized day and night sighting which is available to the gunner and commander. Amphibious travel is possible but limited to some extent, requiring the addition of a snorkel system
