This appears to be the infantry fighting vehicle variant. Too bad the turret is obscured, but you can see the cannon sticking out from under the camouflage.
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
Yes I know 08 refers to the whole family, but I thought they all had the same hull, just different turretsType 08 is the designation is for an entire family of armored 8x8 vehicles. Every vehicle in the images below is a Type 08.
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-11Upgraded 8x8 chassis, which was first revealed as a self-propelled gun platform.
