One of the largest tanks in existance, the Type 85 was designed for primarily scaring the shit out of its opponants. Has been used in the past as a menacing deterrent against rioters and looters. Although it has lots of firepower, its speed and and range are pretty low for its engine size and weight.

Used in 2009 by Pakistan, supporting troops as they try and push the Taliban out of South Warizistan.
