Have anyone seen a picture of a PAP using the new QBZ-191? They always seemed to be getting the latest gears yet I haven't seen any pictures of them actually using one.

Hello,
I am looking for information on the PLA Army engineer Battalions ORBAT in the CA BDEs (light/MED/HVY). I am just trying to get an idea of the make up and number of vehicles, type, etc within these BNs. Such as how many companies are in the Engineer BN of a Heavy Combined Arms BDE? Where would you find the GSL-130 or GSL-133 Armored Engineer breach vehicles? Where you find the GBL-130 mine laying vehicles? Are they in different companies? The same companies? How many vehicles are there in the company (generally as each CA BDE seems to be different)
I have tried to use the numbering system for the figuring out the Engineer battalion structure to no avail so any help will be appreciated.

Update- I have found one image from a GSL-133 that would indicate that the 8th BN in a CA Hvy BDE is the Engineer BN. The number on the vehicle is 8303, which should indicate that the 8th BN (Engineer), 3rd Company and third vehicle in that company if I understand this numbering system correctly. There is also a GIF of a GSL-130, with the number of 8303. So I suspect that the third company could be the Counter Obstacle Company but I am still unsure. As another photo of a GSL-130 is numbered 8341, which is still the 9th BN, 3rd Company, but 41st vehicle in the Company?

So If I use a Russian Engineer Battalion consisting of Sapper Company, Road Company, Technical Company and Bridging Company, I would be wrong. However I suspect that the third Company in the 8th BN in a CA (Hvy) BDE is the 'Road' Company having a Counter Obstacle platoon. If someone has information or photos of engineer vehicles, like a GBL-Mine laying vehicle I would appreciate it.
