Speaking of light infantry RRU, here's a Chinese new Desert Patrol Vehicle/Ground Mobility Vehicle

And of course, the Lynx 8x8 all-terrain buggie is also featured in this drill under an air assault mode

Wishful thinking or the little engine that could?

The Lynx 8x8 all-terrain (87 hp diesel) has been in PLA service since 2010 and has long been associated with PLA's heliborne assault doctrine development from the get-go.   The Lynx is also widely reported in service in rough terrains such as Xinjiang, Tibet and near the Sion-Vietnam boarder.

Now it is being aggressively marketed - judging by recent Zhuhai Airshow - as an entire light family of assault and heliborne solutions ranging from transport, indirect and direct fire support, to air defense
