    An unidentified tracked vehicle with mine detection system was spotted this Thursday during an inspection of a Ground Force division from the Central Theater Command of the People’s Liberation Army by President Xi Jinping.

    According to a report by Beijing’s state-run central television (CCTV) on 4 January, the special combat vehicle with mounted mine detection system was developed for People’s Liberation Army. CCTV does not give any details of the new vehicle.

    According to the local source, this is new vehicle developed for the detection of metal and non-metallic buried explosives in the ground and near roads.

    The vehicle is equipped with multiple sensors and ground penetrating radar mounted in a special ramp. The antennas are arranged with a certain offset sidewise and lengthwise in such a way that there is no detection gap in driving direction.

    Probably just a simple off terrain golf cart type vehicle.

    Gulf carts tend to be slow, short range, electric or a very low powered 4 stroke, designed for use in factories, gulf courses, campus environments with urbanized no risk terrain. they can carry 2 people and their clubs
    These are UTV's they are longer range utility vehicles They have a medium speed and are designed to move in rough terrain. They are designed to roll over and can carry a weight of almost 3/4ths of a ton.
    calling it a gulf cart is like calling the hindenburg a balloon

    Well scientifically the Hindenburg is a balloon. A very large one.

    Hmmmmmm... I think a ballon free floats and looses its shape when deflated while the Hindenburg is an airship and has a internal steel skeleton which lets it hold its shape when the gases are released and is also has engines and i steerable.

    True, but both a balloon and an airship used gas to expand and float up though right, regardless of the structure?o_O
