 The 6th Combined-Arms Brigade was enlarged from the old 21st armored regiment, 6th Armored Division, 38th Group Army, Beijing Military Region before the 2017 re-org.    It traded in their Type88B MBT for some new and shiny Type99A  in this round of upgrade.

62nd Combined-Arms Brigade, 76th Group Army, Western Theater Command

The 62nd is the second confirmed Type99A operator of the PLA (here) . The first one - of course - is the 112nd Heavy Mech Infantry Division.

This brigade traded in their Type96 for Type99A in Nov 2016 and received its Type04A IFV in May 2016

I recognise this footage from a 2016 broadcast on the 112th Division. There's no evidence 6th Brigade has upgraded to 99As.
