The Ps 122 is an Estovnian main battle tank developed from imported Anikatian Type 73 Seungli-ho tanks. Considered to be an evolution of the tank rather than a deviation, the Ps 122 incorporates many design influences seen from Free Pardes tanks captured during the Myrdesia War. These features include the transition from a carousel to a bustle autoloader, newer composite armor for increased ammo and crew protection, new 120mm high velocity gun reverse engineered from Belfrasian 120mm guns captured during the 1989 Viljland Conflict, improved digital fire control system, and improved night fighting capabilities.
