How a light amphibious Chinese tank sank during tests: the video was remembered in Taiwan

Published a video of the tests of a Chinese armored amphibious vehicle, which took place on the Yangtze River. It is about floating tank Type-05AAV with a 105 mm cannon.


Armored vehicles of this kind began to enter service with the People's Liberation Army of China in 2015. Prior to that, representatives of the manufacturing plant, together with the military, carried out several stages of testing.

One of the stages was testing the Type-05AAV at full speed when crossing a water hazard. Such tests were carried out several years before the introduction of armored amphibians into service with the Chinese army. And one of the test "races" on the water was then unsuccessful. The floating tank covered several tens of meters, and then suddenly began to sink under the water. A Chinese armored vehicle sank in about 25-30 seconds. The test crew in orange life jackets began to urgently leave the light tank, which rushed to the bottom.

Today, Taiwanese users are paying attention to the video, which appeared on one of the Chinese channels. The fact is that in Taiwan they continue to believe that Beijing is preparing an invasion of the island. And one of the means of such an "invasion" seems to be the PLA Type-05AAV amphibious light tank.

As noted in Taiwan, the video originally appeared on the CCTV9 channel live, and when the PRC began to prepare the film “History military industry ”, which was released the other day, it was decided to cut this episode of tests.

      One only did not understand, if this is still a test, then how was the tank adopted back in 2015? But here I am not an expert, maybe knowledgeable people will tell you ...

      So in the article they wrote:

      This video has just leaked to the network

    Not a tank ... a speedboat, and then some kind of submarine ... And Taipei rightly fear it, it is clearly created for the PRC Marine Corps and its speed when moving on water makes it a difficult target. And the fact that he sank, so the tests, so that during them to reveal all the "childhood diseases"

      Yes, they began to swim briskly, one might even say very quickly, but you see something went wrong, either the hatches were not closed, or the iceberg was caught. They will bring and float.

          He doesn't care about the snuff, the car is somehow, but armored. Our PTukhs also drowned safely if, after service in the park, they forgot to close the drain plug.

      Not a tank ... a glider,
      This is what ruined him. At high speed, any crack is deadly. The water inflow occurs so quickly that the crew does not have time to react and take adequate measures.

    Is it fast forward, or is it really moving so fast through the water?

      Moreover, they added water cannons, the mechanic was sitting on top. It happens that the first pancake is lumpy, but they took it into service, so the problem was solved.

    It happens.
    It happens that something drowns that, by definition, cannot drown.
    Or it was created for this.
    And it happens, as with a Spanish submarine, built with violations (and most likely the calculations are not correct) which cannot submerge.
    Because if you submerge, you won't be able to surface.

    We wish our Chinese comrades every success. And let the Taiwanese not rejoice. Chinese tanks will still reach Taipei.

    I have two questions: So is it normal to smoke? And the second - does it have a lifting wave breaker? And then the nose flooded and went into submariners.

      : So smoke is the norm?

      No, this is not the norm. Either the engine was overpowered, clever with fuel equipment, as happened with diesel engines on tanks at one time, or the engine suffers from constant hypothermia, which happens very often afloat and the resinification process has begun ...

    It will be hard for this tank to overcome the anti-ship missile system on the UDC, and then 200 Abrams. And they will not go into open armed conflict with the United States. Whipping up passions. They justify the huge purchase of heavy armored vehicles and aircraft from the United States.

        The states are the guarantor of Taiwan's security. Just like Korea and Japan. They warned more than once that they would not allow interference. News stuffing. Taiwan not so long ago received approval for 100+ Abrams and the modernization of the F-16, there are 6+ lards.

          And they get into the affairs of CHINESE Hong Kong. And the PRC declares that it does not recognize Taiwan's sovereignty and that this is their territory. It's quiet there now, but there were times of air battles over the strait and artillery shelling ... and somehow the United States did not go into battle for them

            China at one time guaranteed non-interference in the internal affairs of Hong Kong. The current history of this enclave puts an end to the plans for the peaceful integration of Taiwan into the PRC - after the Hong Kong events, not a single sane Taiwanese will want to go under the PRC.

              Guaranteed to whom? British, while taking this territory from them? Did he allow other countries to interfere in the internal affairs of Hong Kong?

    The Chinese know how to draw conclusions. There are no shameful breakdowns in the tank biathlon. And here everything will be fixed.
