Seems there's some more painting to be done.

Too bad the other one with the AHEAD-capable 35mm single barrel revolver-gun didnt win out. Looks like a price issue. This model here only has its RoF going for it compared to the aforementioned gun system with the smart rounds.

Ok, so the one with the AHEAD-capable 35mm single barrel revolver-gun didnt win out is for certain?
But why then do the tracked versions have both the 25 mm quadruple and the 35 mm duo? And what
about the 40 mm CTA cannon? Will this enter service or is it solely for export?

Since the HQ-17 is the new, high-end short range SAM, is there a budget version in mass service in the PLA?

I've seen many many variants based on QW-1, TY-90, FN-6 mounted on all sorts of vehicles but haven't seen any news of one in mass service

Interestingly it was shown with an alternate loadout of 4 QW-type SAM.
Also not mentioned before, but this is a new revolver cannon vs. the twin 35mm autocannon on PGZ-07, I think that is new information.

I have asked the same question as well regarding the short range SAM, no one seems to know... As you have noticed as well, there are many LD-2000, PGZ-07, etc. shown with short range SAMs, but none adopted so far. However, it seems the new Gatling cannon system above has them and this one.
