A new export 8x8 IFV. It features modular design, V-shaped hull, fully independent suspension, and automatic transmission. Weight is up to 30 tons, depending on configuration.

Still rocking HJ-73s I see... Also, the turret looks like a mockup, the smoke launchers are quite thin and the gun barrel is entirely painted on.

I wonder what these modules are. Flotation devices or armor modules, maybe? But their placement seems strange, as some are placed on top of the vehicles in a haphazard manner. Also, are those pipes or some kind of jury-rigged means of attaching them to the vehicle?

This might sound silly, but could it be external fuel tanks for extending on water range?

The mockup turret might have been originally made for a different vehicle, so the HJ-73 might not be representative. Note the mockup is not even painted to match the rest of the vehicle. Hopefully, we'll soon find out what the real turret looks like.
