Google translator fail of the day: amphibious chariots

I believe the correct English word for "amphibious chariots" is "amphibious AFVs"

(People's Daily Online)    15:39, February 19, 2014

The landing equipment of our navy, including dock landing ships, inflatable landing boats and amphibious chariots, is gradually providing a new three-dimensional multiple platform. The Navy Equipment Department has announced that the Chinese navy will set up a multi-platform landing equipment system this year.

China's naval forces have already made several breakthroughs in multi-platform landing equipment. Dock landing ships, inflatable landing boats and other new equipment will be progressively deployed. Success in the research and development of large landing ships has filled a gap in this field.

According to the report, a new-type inflatable landing boat which has previously been tested together with the naval escort formation will be deployed. This boat can adapt well to the demands of battle. In addition, the navy will try to enhance the overall information technology level of the landing equipment system, and further promote the information exchange and accurate attack capacity of landing equipment.
