The Type 58 is a Chinese tier 6 medium tank.

In the early 1950s the U.S.S.R exported a total of 1,800 T-34-76 and T-34-85 tanks to China. In 1954 the Chinese government made a decision to begin domestic production of the T-34-85 in 1958, with the new vehicle designated the Type 58. However, production was never initiated, and the Chinese army settled for modifications to the T-34s.

The Type 58 leads to the T-34-1 and IS-2.

Historical Info

In the early 1950s the U.S.S.R exported a total of 1,800 T-34-76 and T-34-85 tanks to China. In 1954 the Chinese government made a decision to begin domestic production of the T-34-85 in 1958, with the new vehicle designated the Type 58. However, mass production was never initiated, and the Chinese army settled for modifications to the T-34s. Limited number of domestically made Type 58 tanks were produced, although it is not clear in what percentage were those tanks Chinese made, as they shared a lot of spare parts with Soviet made T-34 tanks, which were available at a very low price and in large numbers. At the time of the production, Type 58 was completely obsolete.
