Type 63

Notes: This self-propelled antiaircraft vehicle is one of the oldest still in the Chinese inventory, and it is also still used by Vietnam. The vehicle consists of a T-34 tank chassis topped with an open turret mounting twin 37mm autocannons. The traverse on the turret and the elevation mechanism on the guns are both manual, so they are slow.

Type 69-37-2

Notes: This is a Type 69 tank with the turret replaced with one mounting twin 37mm autocannons. This is a clear-weather-only system, as no radar is provided (a few rare Type 69-37-2s do have radar). The commander is seated on the left inside the turret and the gunner is on the right, with the autocannons between them.

Type 80

Notes: This is an older Chinese self-propelled antiaircraft gun, similar to the Russian ZSU-57-2, being a large, open-topped turret mounting twin S-60 autocannons on a Type 69-II tank chassis. Slightly larger than the ZSU-57-2, it carries more ammunition, has better gun stabilization, and better sights. There is a wire cage on the rear of the turret for the crew to deposit empty shell casings and links. Unlike most other Chinese weapons and vehicles, the Type 80 was not exported.
