The network is discussing a photo of an "unknown" Chinese BMP

The network discusses pictures taken on one of the highways in China. We are talking about a unit of wheeled armored vehicles in camouflage colors of the People's Liberation Army of the People's Republic of China, captured on a mobile phone camera. The author of the pictures writes that this is an "unknown" infantry fighting vehicle made in China.


On the one hand, the armored vehicle resembles an amphibious armored personnel carrier of the Chinese Marine Corps - ZTL-11. This armored vehicle is equipped with a 105-mm cannon and is considered as a means for the transfer of troops and at the same time for artillery support of amphibious operations in the coastal zone.

However, the armored vehicle, which was transported on an automobile platform, even had a lot of visual differences from the ZTL-11. In particular, in the ZTL-11, each of the pairs of wheels has its own "space" in the lateral projection. This is achieved by a special shape of the body, when the wheel spaces in the upper part are organized by structures in the form of volumetric armored prisms.

The photo shows that such armored prisms ("wings") of the hull separate only the front wheel group.

Also, the modification captured on camera differs from the classic version of the ZTL-11 in the presence of special add-ons on the turret. It is assumed that one of them represents the design of a remote combat module, which includes a machine gun.

The same - classic - version of ZTL-11 - without a combat module:



CCTV frame:



As you can see, the differences are in the shape of the tower.

      Why is this color in the top photos? Do the Chinese have blue trees?

    I wonder how many commentators who saw this article even knew that China has such a machine. And even more so whether they can see the differences between them.

    It looks more like a purely artillery module that does not have the function of transporting troops, but is loaded to the eyeballs with ammo.
    In addition, there are differences in the design and mounting of the rims: they are more powerful.
    And the two turrets on the turret on the right and left behind - isn't this an optical rangefinder?

      It looks like this thing is also floating (is there a water cannon behind there?).
      But the pictures, of course, are not.

        They are all with water cannons, regular wheeled tanks too.

      There is a question, the gangway-hatch from behind is clearly visible. This type.


      Normal tanks have nothing there.


      Or is it just by experience that they made a small place (like on the Merkava) and a convenient entrance and exit, like on their new export wheeled tank, for which the transportation of up to 4 people is declared in an emergency.

    Camouflage typical of the PLA Marine Corps ... so this is most likely a modification for them
    The photo shows that such armored prisms ("wings") of the hull separate only the front wheel group.
    What is most likely intended to increase the speed afloat, which in turn confirms once again that this is a special modification for the Marine Corps

    A light wheeled tank, most likely. Perhaps a mountain option, for difficult terrain, this is evidenced by the height of the car, with low ground clearance, wheeled vehicles in the mountains are ineffective.

      Direct Fire Support Fighting Vehicle.
      Essentially an analogue of the Stryker M1128 MGS (Mobile Gun System)

    Marine version. It swims better and has a small (or standard) landing distance, judging by the characteristic gangway at the stern. In addition to the APC for the Marines at the same base.

    Search the internet for about ten minutes to find out what the new VP-10 modular chassis is.
    with a 105 mm cannon which was introduced back in 2016:

      Good side observation windows for the landing and embrasures with dampers for firing.

    The 11th model has a rear engine and no troop compartment. On the left side, behind the air intake grille for engine cooling and ventilation. On this one, it seems, dvigun in front, like on an infantry fighting vehicle, and it seems even a stern door. Mozha, to facilitate the loading of ammunition.

    Immediately striking is the purely Chinese "tallness" of armored vehicles - not otherwise specially made so high so that it would be easier for Indian artillerymen to hit it !!!
