  1. 1. Would you like to have bulldozer modification for Type 90 (and Type 90 B)?

    • Yes, it would bring some improvement to frontal protection
      13
    • Yes, but it should come with stock instead of separate modification
      4
    • No, I don't think these two vehicles need such upgrade

I know it's a lame topic but maybe it should be brought to people's attention from time to time...

 

As we all know, currently the Type 90 (B) in game is nothing different from Type 90 except for some plate meaning for the mine rollers (which is currently none-functional and won't bring much protection)

However, things would change a little if bulldozer modification is added for Type 90 (B):

This would help improve the frontal protection and make it vary from the original Type90.

 

And the phonotype of Type 90 (TKX-0004) are equipped with bulldozer as well, so the bulldozer modification maybe a possible addition to the original Type 90 as well.

:)A similar suggestion was moderated but haven't passed to developers for consideration though, please help upvote the topic

 and make it come true in game!

The Type 90 (B) has the plates welded onto the lfp but which required the removal of the mounting ring for the blade:

If anything the Type 90 would be the one to get the blade while the 90 (B) remains with the little plates welded onto the hull.

But IRL the official document mentioned that Type 90 (B) can be mounted with dozers, they just need to remove those plates.

(9) A tank can be equipped with a dozer device consisting of a soil removal device, a hydraulic device, etc. by modifying a part of the vehicle body.

(10) The tank can be equipped with a minefield treatment roller according to the formal R 3603 by modifying the additional equipment shown in Appendix 2 and Appendix 1. (Excluding vehicles equipped with a dozer device.)

I assume the lower plate can be removed and install the normal mounting ring to mount dozers, after all the Type 90 (B) is not especially designed to mount mine rollers.

If it says so then that's fine, but at that point it's basically back to being just a regular Type 90 because the plates have been removed. The plates (or at least the base of the plates) also look to be welded onto the tank so I don't know how much modification would be required but if they wanted to mount a blade to the Type 90 (B) but it seems that it wouldn't just be a quick on and off operation. It would make more sense to give the Type 90 (B) parts of the mine roller but the upper parts might block gun elevation angles:

I don't really mind a Type 90 getting a dozer blade, its just figuring out which one would be the one to get it.
