Is this BK1060 with SAM for export? I believe something very similar was shown at last Zhuhai airshow in these colours. The other pictures (no SAMs) posted were all of green paintjobs. Kind of following my previous question on LD-2000 doesn't seem to have SAM in operational photos.

Also to note (although obvious) Army is going with 35mm AAA, but Navy will be using 30mm (ground forces using same system as the shipborne)

The gun-only variant is definitely available for export, but not sure about the gun-SAM combo. I don't see why not.

The Desert style pattern seems to be the go to pattern for export products.

Also, just noticed... could be further evidence to export oriented demo, it looks like 2 different SAMs are mounted. Some pics have a TY-90-type twin box launcher, others have a quad cylindrical tube (QW/FN series?).

I wonder if this is indicative of a modular design, or the opposite, very loose integration (bolt-on).

The first part of the documentary is on the evolution of PLA's anti aircraft guns. Apparently it took around 10 years to reverse engineer. Over the years they have managed to upgrade the system, achieving better performances. Also, simple optical tracking and certain automation also allows each unit to independently engages target in the absence of skyguard radar as well as being fire remote controlled from inside truck cabin. Improvement in smart ammunition enables the unit the achieve (airburst) performance on the level of Oelikon GDF 006 (AHEAD) system. BK1060 on the other hand is a revolver cannon system similar to Rheinmetall's Skyranger 35.

The 2nd part is about downing of U-2 over China.

Truck mounted PGZ09 Twin-35mm for China Army's "Mid Size" brigades according to China defence blog. I didn’t know it was already in service?
Does anyone know more about this?
