This former 190th Heavy Mechanized Infantry Brigade, 39GA, Shenyang MR is now injected with ZBD04A tracked IFV and ZBL08 wheel IFV replacing the old ZBD86A (BMP-1) and ZSD89 APC. Clearly the new fleet of IFV should provide better support to their Type96A MBT.

MANILA, Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese naval escort fleet, composed of three vessels, arrived in Manila on Thursday for a five-day friendly visit to the Philippines, according to the Chinese Navy.
The visiting ships, including missile frigates "Wuhu" and "Handan," and supply ship "Dongpinghu" docked Thursday morning at the Manila Port, making the last port call after completing their escort mission in the Gulf of Aden and the waters off Somalia.
This is the second visit by Chinese navy ships to the country since Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte came to power in 2016. The first visit took place in April 2017 in Davao city, the home city of Duterte in the southern Philippines.
"I believe the visit will enhance military to military exchanges and mutual trust, deepen friendship and strengthen cooperation between our two navies," Rear Admiral Xu Haihua, commander of the 30th Escort Task Group of the Chinese Navy, said upon arrival.
Commodore Wilfredo Burgunio, deputy commander of the Philippine Fleet, told Xinhua that he believes the visit will promote the relations between the navies. "We welcome this (visit). And we hope to have more engagements like this," he said.
"The arrival of our Chinese Navy counterparts underscores the continuing efforts to further strengthen the relationship between our governments and navies. This will further enhance and sustain the promotion of peace, stability, and maritime cooperation through naval diplomacy," he added.
The Chinese Navy will engage in a number of activities during their visit to the Philippines. They will pay courtesy calls to the Philippines' senior navy officers, hold a shipboard reception, organize a tour aboard the ships, and take part in friendly games with their Philippine Navy counterparts.
A send-off ceremony will cap off the port visit on Jan. 21.
