There are pictures of china’s new light tank for fighting in mountainous areas. China’s has issues with minorities in some of the mountain areas. China has almost 15 million Muslims who live mainly in the rugged mountains and desert basins of the northwest, on the central Yellow River Valley plains, in the southern province of Yunnan and among the city populations of the east.
The ZTQ light tanks seem to have 105-millimeter main guns. They were seen on train cars, apparently heading for China’s mountainous Tibet region. This according to the very attentive China Defense Blog, which routinely reposts the most interesting semi-official photos of Chinese weaponry.
