The Type 59 (Chinese: 59式; pinyin: Wǔ shí jiǔ shì; industrial designation: WZ-120) main battle tank is a Chinese-produced version of the Soviet T-54A tank, the earliest model of the ubiquitous T-54/55 series. The first vehicles were produced in 1958 and it was accepted into service in 1959, with serial production beginning in 1963. Over 10,000 of the tanks were produced by the time production ended in 1980 with approximately 5,500 serving with the Chinese armed forces. The tank formed the backbone of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army until the early 2000s (decade) with an estimated 5,000 of the later Type 59-I and Type 59-II variants in service in 2002.

The Type 59 was modified several times during its service. It was also the basis of several later Chinese tank designs including the Type 69 and Type 79 tanks.

Guy Trades For Tank On eBay, Finds $2.5 Million In Gold Hidden Inside

Posted at 11:53 am on April 9, 2017 by Bob Owens

An English military vehicle collector thought he got quite the deal when he traded a tank and self-propelled gun for a Type-69 tank, a Chinese variant of the T54 developed by the Russians that was sold to Iraq and used in the 1991 Persian Gulf War.

When he examined the tank, he found out just how good of a deal it was; the Iraqi tank crew had apparently looted roughly £2 million ($2,474,600) worth of gold bullion, and had hidden it in a fuel tank. . . . Read Complete Repoirt

Albertville (France) (AFP) – A French climber scaling a glacier off Mont Blanc got more than satisfaction for his efforts when he stumbled across a treasure trove of emeralds, rubies and sapphires that had been buried for decades.

The jewels, estimated to be worth up to 246,000 euros ($332,000), lay hidden in a metal box that was on board an Indian plane that crashed in the desolate landscape some 50 years ago. . . . Read Complete Report

Captain Morgan’s treasure unearthed in Panama (w/videos)

An original Pirate of the Caribbean’s loot from the 17th century has been recovered from the ocean and will go on show

By Anthea Gerrie 31 July, 2012

The belongings of a real-life Pirate of the Caribbean have been discovered off the coast of Panama and are set to go on show for travelers keen to see how 17th-century buccaneers lived.

The pirate was Captain Henry Morgan, of rum bottle fame, a Welshman who looted throughout the Spanish Main in the 17th century before losing five ships in the West Indies.

Fritz Hanselmann, an underwater archaeologist with the River Systems Institute and the Center for Archaeological Studies at Texas State University, found swords, barrels and chests belonging to one of Morgan’s ships after a three-year search.

“Morgan was one of the most infamous privateers of all time, so this was a chance to use archaeological research to bridge the gap between science and pop culture,” Hanselmann says.

The recovery follows the discovery of six of Morgan’s cannons off the Panamanian coast in 2010. . . . Read Complete Report w/photos
