Soviet IS-2 tanks were exported to China in the early 1950s and were used during the Korean War from 1950 through 1953. According to U.S. reconnaissance data, at least four Chinese tank companies deployed in Korea had the IS-2 tank, with five tanks in each company. The IS-2 remained in Chinese service until the late 1950s. Production was discontinued due to a shortage of spare parts and the launch of the Type 59 project. A few IS-2 tanks were exported to Vietnam, where they fought in the final stage of the Indochina War of 19461954.

!!WZ-111

Development of the heavy tank prototype on the basis of the Soviet IS-2 and IS-3 began in the early 1960s under the influence of the T-10. The vehicle was supposed to modernize the armored forces of the PLA. The trials revealed multiple faults, and the development of the vehicle was discontinued in 1964.
----
----

!!110

From the mid-1940s to the 1950s, Soviet engineers attempted to modernize the IS-2 tank. The IS-2U variant, developed in November 1944, was conceived to have a reinforced frontal hull with a plate configuration resembling that of the IS-3. In the mid-1950s the design project was passed to China and became the basis for further Chinese tank development.
----
----

!!112

The development of the 112 tank started in 1962. The project was to feature parts and components of medium and heavy tanks. Existed only in blueprints. The 113 tank was a further development of the 112.
----
----

!!WZ-111 model 1-4

Prototype of a heavy tank developed in the early 1960s. The 111 project was developed on the basis of the Soviet IS-3 and T-10 tanks. In 1964 development was discontinued in favor of new types of medium tanks.
----
* {{BFG}}: Can mount a 130 mm gun, which is basically a copy of the IS-7's gun. It's actually better in some aspects, despite being a tier lower.
----

!!113

Development on model 113 was started in 1963. The vehicle was conceived as an alternative to the WZ-111 and used parts and components of medium tanks. However, the project was canceled due to the development of main battle tanks.
----
* UnexpectedGameplayChange: The 113 differs dramatically from its predecessors, mainly in that it plays more like a [[LightningBruiser well-armoured medium tank]], rather than an agile heavy tank.
* DifficultButAwesome: Its lack of reliable armor coupled with its barely serviceable gun can lead to major frustration when attempting to utilize traditional heavy tactics. However, it can perform just as well as any tier X heavy tank when backed up by a reliable team.

[[folder:Chinese Tank Destroyers]]
Originally available only on Chinese server, Chinese Tank Destroyers are mostly [[ArtisticLicenseHistory "what if"]] vehicles based on existing Chinese tanks. Starting as weakly-armored snipers, around Tier 8 they turn into heavily-armored frontline bruisers like the late-tier Soviet Tank Destroyers.
----

!T-26G FT

A Tank Destroyer Conversion of the T-26. Marks the beginning of the Chinese Tank Destroyer Line
----
* GlassCannon: Its 46mm gun is devastating for a Tier 2 vehicle, but its lack of any meaningful armor means that if it gets spotted, it's dead
----

![=M3G=] FT

Tank destroyer based off captured Lend-Lease American M3 light tanks. Never built in reality.
----
* AchillesHeel: The reticle bloom makes follow-up shots extremely difficult, allowing potential targets to fall back into cover
* EliteTweak: Has the option of a fast firing, high-penetration 57mm gun that has poor aim time and dispersion, or a higher-alpha, fast aiming, and accurate 76mm which suffers from worse penetration and shell velocity.
* GlassCannon: Like the T-26G before it, it packs two excellent guns for its tier but lacks both armor and is open-topped, making it easy prey for HE-users.
----

!SU-76G

A proposed modification to imported Soviet SU-76 self-propelled guns. No prototypes were built.
----
* GlassCannon: Starting to see a trend? Maintains the excellent guns of the [=M3G=], and also gains access to the 85mm 56-85TG AP gun making it one of the best-armed Tank Destroyers at Tier 4
* MovesetClone: Prior to mounting the 85mm it plays like the SU-76M a tier higher.
----

![=60G FT=]

Proposed modification to imported Soviet FT-T artillery tractors. Never went beyond design phase.
----
* AchillesHeel: Beyond its weak armor, its poor camo value makes it easy to spot, and its sluggishness makes it an easy target once spotted
* GlassCannon: Boasts the highest DPM of any Tier 5 Tank Destroyer

More than 50 of these vehicles were produced in Taiwan. All basic components of the vehicle were based on those of American vehicles. The Hellcat turret was mounted on the chassis of the M42 anti-aircraft vehicle, and the armament was the well-proven M1A2 gun. Only one Type 64 prototype survives today.
