Type 88 37mm SPAAAThe Type 88, the PLA's first generation fully automatic self-propelled anti-aircraft artillery [SPAAA] system, features a Type 74 twin-37mm AAA mounted on a Type 69 MBT chassis. The turret is welded and fully enclosed with search radar and fire control equipment on top. The performance of the Type 88 was unsatisfactory, and the system never entered production. Development activity subsequently focused on work on the new Type 90II.
