The thin-skinned ZBD04 pictured here is not successful by PLA standards, only 500 vehicles entered service when the heavier and larger ZBD05 became the new standard issue tracked APC for "swimming" units and the up-armored ZBD04A for others.

I'd like to ask a question about the Type-07 badges. Do they have a badge system that indicate the arms of service? How do you tell apart an artillery captain from a tank unit captain?

Good question. As far as I know, both service arms are using the same badge.
