    Rumours of a new Chinese light tank first surfaced in 2011 and now new details have emerged, including adjustable armour and a 105-mm gun.

    The People’s Liberation Army developed its first tank in 1962. The Type 62/WZ-131 was designed to successfully navigate the low-capacity bridges and rugged terrain of southern China. Continuing that tradition, Beijing is developing its latest light tank, and Chinese web portal Sina released details last month.

    The website confirms earlier reports that the vehicle weighs roughly 35 tons and is equipped with a 105-mm gun. While the website claims that the vehicle requires a crew of four, it’s cannon features an autoloader, which would eliminate the need for one crewmember.

    The gun appears to have sights and optics based on the T-99A2, the Chinese army’s third generation main battle tank. It could also come with shell-tracking radar. Cannon rounds could be capable of penetrating 500-mm armor, and the tank could fire gun-launched missiles. The turret comes with detachable armor and is equipped with smoke grenade launchers and laser detectors.

    As for the tank’s chassis, Sina reports that the vehicle features a liquid-gas suspension. This allows the tank to "crouch" in order to more effectively conceal itself. The suspension also stabilizes the vehicle during targeting, allowing for improved accuracy.

    PLA takes large-scale military exercises with new AFT-10 anti-tank missile

    People's Liberation Army (PLA): News - Page 2 3b03aff0e587cfdbf6ee525d8fb7112d-2-e1455198724498-696x498

    People’s Liberation Army takes large-scale military exercises with new AFT-10 optic fibre guided anti-tank missile.

    The AFT-10 (also named HJ-10) is a Chinese land attack missile developed by China Aerospace Science & Industry Corporation (CASIC). AFT-10 was first revealed in its deployment in Peace Mission 2014 joint military exercise.

    The AFT-10 has a length of 1,850 mm; width of 165 mm; weight, including launch system, of 150 kg; and a warhead weighing 43 kg. Its solid-rocket booster and micro turbojet engine confer a range of 10 km, a cruise speed of 150 m/s, and an attack speed of 230 m/s.

    At the 2012 Zhuhai show China also revealed the Sichuan Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation’s WS-33 optical/imaging guided rocket, which is longer than the CM-501G at 3,300 mm and heavier at 200 kg, but has a similar 70 km range. From the missile’s brochure it is not clear whether it used fibre-optic guidance and it may use datalinks instead. The WS-33 uses folding delta wings compared with the CM-501G’s folding straight wings.

    Two of these missiles were seen carried by and launched by a version of the new ZBD-04A armoured personnel carrier (APC), also fitted with a new optical/imaging guidance system. The ZBD-04A may be able to carry up to eight missiles.

    Chinese army received a new batch of ZTL-09 fire support vehicle

    The Chinese army received a new batch of ZTL-09 105-mm fire support vehicle.

    Brigade of the 65th Army of China has received a new batch of ZTL-09 fire support vehicle.

    The ZTL-09 is based on the ZBL-09 wheeled 8×8 armored personnel carrier chassis. The main role of this fire support vehicle is to engage enemy armor, fortifications and other targets. It supplements the previous PTL-02 fire support vehicle, based on the 6×6 APC. However the new ZTL-09 is fitted with a more powerful gun.

    Wheeled fire support vehicles are cheaper to produce and maintain than main battle tanks. Also these have high speed and mobility on hard surface roads and can respond rapidly to various threats. These wheeled vehicles do not need heavy equipment transporters in order to relocate them on long distances.

    Chinese tanks still sack..

    On the shortcomings of Chinese-made tanks type 99A

    Magazine «Kanwa Asian Defense» in the article «Chinese Tanks' Quality Problems» continues to publish interesting facts from the life of Chinese armored forces. Thus, the article reported that in October 2015, the transfer to the Chinese CCTV channel acted Tank Designer Mao Ming, who said that a tank type 99A (ZTZ99A) has a low reliability. In 1999, during the rehearsal of parade in honor of Day of the PRC tanks ZTZ99A glohli several times. The main problems were associated with not very serious issues, such as leakage of water and oil and the loss of spark in candlelight. However, the magazine does not share the opinion of "insignificance" of these defects.

    Judging by claims of my personal friend from China (driver of Type 96A), units that got Type 99A had major issues with its transmission.

    "The Shocker-1 is a new Anti-terrorism Shoulder-launched Rocket designed and manufactured by the Chinese defense Company Poly Defence. It is a new concept of single-shot man-portable light weapon system which is designed to counter terrorist and cope with emergency in urban operation. Shocker-1 can destroy light armored vehicles, break fortifications and break brick walls, windows and doors in urban operation with good launching stealthy Shocker-1 has good damage effectiveness, meanwhile, it adopts low collateral damage technology to reduce casualties of own staff and hostage. The Shocker-1 can be used against fortifications within 200 meters, brick walls and theft-proof doors with thickness of no more than 120mm and solid wood walls with thickness of no more than 150mm. It can be also used against combat vehicle within 200 meters and light armored vehicles with armor thickness no more than 3mm.

    Different from traditional projectiles that kill and hurt the target by metal fragmentation. Shocker-1 weapon system adopted composite warhead shell technology which destroys the target by high-pressure shock wave in explosion and the composite materials are fully burnt in explosion with low collateral damage and high destruction efficiency The warhead design is optimized to effectively control fragments flying area and Shockwave attenuation.

    People's Liberation Army (PLA): News - Page 2 Shoker-1_anti-terrorism_shoulder-launched_rocket_Poly_Defence_KADEX_2016_defense_exhibition_Astana_Kazakhstan_001

    Shocker-1 adopted balanced launching technique. When launching, ignited propellant powder sharply produces high gas-pressure inside chamber which pushes front piston and rocket to barrel mouth and pushes rear piston and balance unit to barrel end simultaneously. Since rocket and balance unit move simultaneously but in opposite directions which maintains momentum balance, the barrel is not influenced by unbalanced impulse/recoil force and ensure operator safety.

    Due to large overload and composite anisotropic characteristics in the process of balance launching, the warhead is optimized to meet structural strength and to reach the maximum mutilate performance/kill probability with the minimum collateral damage on the condition of limited powder charge. Meanwhile, blasting warhead technique meets the requirement of breaking brick walls and theft-proof doors and penetrating 3mm thin-armor.

    Shocker-1 weapon system adopts reliable fuse arming technique at short distance which is suitable for short-range combat especially attacking on enemies at short distance and ensuing our own staff safety."

    Chinese Combined Weapons Complex QTS-11

    It seems that it was under the name of QTS-11 that the Chinese combined automatic grenade launcher (the complex combines a 5.8mm submachine gun and a 20mm grenade launcher) was adopted, which I wrote about two years ago. It is known as the ZH-05, but it was not the official name given to the armament.

    Continuation of the reform of the structure of the People's Liberation Army of China

    Actually confirmed what the information leaked about in March, only the reorganization is wider than it was then written. As expected, out of the 18 former army groups (armies) there will be only 13 army groups, but there will be no simple reduction. All the remaining thirteen armies are reorganized and receive a new through numbering - from the 71st to the 83rd Army. At the same time, the transfer of parts of the ground forces to the naval infantry of the Navy continues, the Global Times referring to an anonymous source in the Navy reports that it is being transferred entirely to the 1st Amphibious Mechanized Division from the First Army.

    It sounds like destroying those Chinese troops would be rather easy.


    Military units in Yanbian were relocated from Heilongjiang Province, thus adding 300,000 troops along the border, the source added.

    Now it is deploying missile defense batteries near North Korean reservoirs by the Apnok and Duman rivers.

    Chinese troops in the border area could be swept away if the North tore down the banks of the reservoirs or they were destroyed by missiles or air strikes, the source added.

    Greater Eurasia coming together in the Russian Far East
    Xi defines the partnership as the best mechanism to “jointly neutralize the external risks and challenges”. ..
    Contrary to misinformed or manipulated Western hysteria, the current Vostok war games in the Russian Far East’s Trans-Baikal, including 3,000 Chinese troops, are just a section of the much deeper, complex Russia-China strategic partnership. This is all about a matryoshka: the war game is a doll inside the geoeconomic game.
    In ‘China and Russia: The New Rapprochement’, Alexander Lukin, from the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow, lays down the roadmap in detail; the evolving, Eurasia-wide economic partnership is part of a much larger, comprehensive concept of “Greater Eurasia”. This is the core of the Russia-China entente, leading to what political scientist Sergey Karaganov has dubbed, “a common space for economic, logistic and information cooperation, peace and security from Shanghai to Lisbon and from New Delhi to Murmansk.” ..the progressive integration of BRI, EAEU, SCO, ASEAN, BRICS and BRICS Plus is bound to irreversibly change the current world-system.

    It's not for the sake of "sending a signal". They must cooperate rather than confront with each other. Only then the Anglo-American balance of power plays of using & setting nations against each other will be rendered useless & tossed into the dustbin of history!
