The 121 is a China Medium Tank

Development of a new medium tank based on the Type 59 began in 1962. The new tank was expected to feature improvements in firepower and armor protection. However, the project was canceled shortly after. Some technical innovations were applied later, in the development of the Type 69 tank. The 121 was the first attempt of China to develop its own tank after the breakdown of relations between China and the Soviet Union. However, the project was considered too ambitious, and development instead switched to the Type 69, which itself was developed from a captured T-62. All 121 tank prototypes were destroyed during Chinese nuclear weapon testing, along with the prototype WZ-132’s. No pictures or blueprints of the tank survive.
