    I wish I learned Mandarin... I even lived in China for a year but still couldn't get it :(

    But from the footage itself, that's a good test.

    at 2:40, the shooting tank's main gun has recoil. most Chinese tanks don't have this. I don't know why!

    That was the effect of the blast coming from the interceptor. The tank's gun was not fired during the testing.

    Yes, that's the video I was referring to.

    See at 2:52 of the video. The blast is from the explosion of the 2 interceptors.

    Edit: Put the video in slow motion. You'll see the gun remains unfired.

    My timestamping did not work. Look at 2:38.

    I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing.

    The part of the video you referred to is the same thing as that I was talking about, albeit played in slow motion and recorded from a different camera at a slightly different location.

    Guys, sorry it's my mistake. I watched the video again, what I referred to the tank fired with recoil was actually a blast very near to the barrel. So the tank didn't fire.
