Added more variants info. Main specs section replaced with T-69-II. The original T-69 didn't enter service and there's no point in listing it. Majority of T-69's exported were T-69-II variant, since T-69-III/T-79 were reserved for PLA use only.

Smoothbore[edit]

This needs a little clarification. Did the Type 69 and Type 69-I prototypes both have a smoothbore copied from the T-62? Was the idea abandoned when the tank went into production? Michael Z. 2006-08-14 13:35 Z

Albania[edit]

Albania never had the Type 69 in service, only the early Type 59. All tanks have been withdrawn from service. dendirrek (talk) 16:58, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

28 September image[edit]

The original website misidentified the tank as a T-55. My apologies.--Darius (talk) 16:34, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

No sweat. It's easy to mix these things up. Almost any time I identify a new photo, I have to double-check by comparing it to known photos. I've noticed that US military photos of any Soviet-legacy tank, and even some actual tanks in museums, tend to be labelled “T-55”. Regards. Michael Z. 2008-09-29 16:42 z
