Al khalid II would be developed keeping thar desert and pakistan terrain in mind.
also type 99 series are close to 60tonnes.And al khalid is to weight around 55tonnes
beside this importing type99 would be expansive
Bt mass producing Al khalid II which apart from engine will be totally indegenous .e.g APS,FCS,chasis,transmission,Armor, and all the things
so al khalid II would cost us less
