Why does China have no infantry fighting vehicles? Bradley style
Tanks and IFVs aren't really my thing... but pretty sure the PLA have the ZBD/ZTD-05 that serves as their infantry fighting/assault vehicle platform

Because PLA prefers BMP-3 style IFVs in the form of ZBD-04/A, with older ZBD-86As being closest to 'Bradley style' as it gets, although it is still closer to BMP-1M. China does have a real 'Bradley style' IFV and that is the VN-17. Seeing how it is offered for export instead of entering production for PLA units, it probably got rejected. And it is a safe guess that PLA is just not interested in these types of IFVs.

Look at it this way: if PLA wanted to ditch the current style of IFVs with the 100 + 30 + 7.62 armament combination in favour of something like Bradley which only carries a 25mm and TOW ATGMs, then they would have done so with the new ZBD-04B that is about to officially enter service. It would be like the VN-12 with only a 30mm autocannon and maybe provisions for 4x AFT-10s, or maybe an entirely new IFV would be in testing instead.

The fact that the new ZBD-04B still has the 100 + 30 + 7.62 combination means that PLA has not lost confidence in the current mechanized infantry doctrine, and so there is no need to complicate things further by using an additional type of IFV that would inevitably have to be used differently.

Looks like a combination of ZTZ-99A and Type 15s. Is this the Sino-Indian border again? They better spread out a bit more or rotate positions every 30 minutes or so. Stationary tanks on hilltops are sitting ducks when dealing with surprise attacks. That was how a well-camouflaged PVA T-34-85 knocked out several M46 Pattons (stationed on a hilltop) during the Korean War.

Spacing isn’t an issue here since they are part of the withdraw process. And no, those are not Type-15a but Type-88s. Once the Type-96B are inducted in Xinjiang, they’d be replaced.
