I thought the PLAN Marines were getting their own amphibious assault light tank. Do we know if that's being scrapped in favor of the Type-15?
No they meant to complement and not substitute. You mean this guy Type 05 (ZTD-05) Amphibious Assault Vehicle (

But they are not tank They are what you called "fire support armored vehicle" They are not meant to fight tank since they have thin wall. They support the infantry with movable 105 mm gun.But Type 15 is real battle tank with heavy armor of composite metal and ERA. Stabilized gun and ballistic computer and day and night vision. etc. So more accurate firing and can take a blow
But good thing about ZTD 05 is they are amphibious and type 15 is not.
