China Unveils New Armored Vehicle Family

by John Reed on June 8, 2011

Speaking of China’s military modernization, it looks like the PLA is unveiling a whole new family of armored  fighting vehicle in its efforts to rapidly modernize its military.

According to the folks at China Defense Blog, the new armored vehicles may be intended to replace the old Type 89 and 86 AFVs. It sounds like no one is quite sure if this is a brand new vehicle or a heavily upgraded Type 89.

The pictures posted on CDB show a traditional armored personnel carrier variant along with an engineering, command post, recon and 120 mm mortar (pictured above) variants.
