Original resolution versions.




Seeing these 2 photos, it seems like there is quite a big design difference with the Type 08. The Type 08 has a almost flat roof while this seems to have 2 levels.

I wonder why they are building these. Aren't the Type 08 quite a new platform? Could it be these are for export or maybe the Type 08 has some big problems we don't know about

Type 08 is the designation is for an entire family of armored 8x8 vehicles. Every vehicle in the images below is a Type 08.

Yes I know 08 refers to the whole family, but I thought they all had the same hull, just different turrets

So this "2 height hull" is also a part of 08 family? In this photo the one on the extreme right looks like a "2 height hull" but I am not sure

Upgraded 8x8 chassis, which was first revealed as a self-propelled gun platform.

(720 × 1280)
Ahh I finally understand now, so this two roof chassis is meant to be paired with the new Type 15 gun, to replace the ZTL-11

I wonder if it will replace the single roof chassis for other variants like the 30mm or 155mm, that seems like a huge waste considering the Type 08s are so new
