Chinese 96-A


A Type 96A runs a junked car under its treads. This is a relatively rare sight, since PLA is not known to perform such stunts. The image is a screen capture from a TV segment on armored warfare in urban areas.

Two additional image of a 96A firing its main gun. Of interest is the bustle storage basket, which now partially wraps around the backside. This must be a fairly recent addition, an ad hoc bolt-on to provide more external storage for the crew.
