VT-5 light tank to debut at this year's Zhuhai air show in 21 days (Nov 1st 2016)
VT-5 is the export variant of the new ZTQ light tank, just as a FYI.
After 4 years of waiting, it is finally here.
While pictures of this new Chinese (ZTQ-??) light tank have been appearing in Chinese internet since Dec 2011 but its turret has not been revealed until now. Judging from armor protection offered by those extreme sloped glacis plates, maybe there is a reason to keep its "head" covered all those years.
Not much is known about this new AFV but it has been spotted en route to the Tibet area on a regular basis. It is also sporting a 105mm tank gun.
