The Type 86 is the 100mm towed antitank gun developed in the late 1980s based on the high-pressure 100mm smoothbore gun technology and the two-wheel carriage of the Type 73 100mm towed antitank gun. NORINCO claimed that the Type 86 is capable of penetrating the frontal armour of the basic variant T-72 at a distance of 2,000m, and later improved variants could penetrate the T-72 and T-80 fitted with explosive reactive armour (ERA). The gun also outperforms Western 105mm tank guns. The Type 86 is in service with PLA motorised infantry divisions as the primary antitank artillery weapon.
