The Type16 Maneuver Combat Vehicle was developed as a wheeled fighting vehicle with the mobility, firepower, protection, and command and control functions necessary for short deployment and leading combat missions in island combat and guerrilla response, and was equipped in 2016.
The main gun is a JSW modified version of the British 105mm L7 gun with reduced recoil.With its 570 hp 4VA engine, it can reach a top speed of 100 km/h. Its light weight of 26 tons allows it to be transported by air on a C-2 transport plane.

This Prototype vehicle was built in Prototype Phase Ⅳ(2011-2013),
This prototype is equipped with a muzzle sighting device and environmental sensors not found on mass-produced vehicles, as well as different module armor shapes and round headlights.
Hope to be implemented with the logo of the 防衛庁技術研究本部(TRDI)

Imagine a whole line up of Type 16s +1


Unless this one is meaningfully different than the other 3 we have in game I seen no reason why it should be added

Look at the turret of the one in game then this one and you’ll see it.
