It’s basc model, without any additional armor, upgrade or additional equipment

It has base hull with the composite armor turret. I shared this picture because it may come in handy in the future.

Left one is a Al Khalid with a very rare turret ERA configuration. I’m not sure about the right one.

These CG images are from an old game from 2016 called “Finalfire”. But now the production team of that game has disbanded. The game was sold to other companies, although the server has always been open, there is no new content.

China Develops New Light Tank with 105mm Cannon to Compete with Western BAE Systems' CV90105 | Defense News April 2024 Global Security army industry | Defense Security global news industry army year 2024 | Archive News year.

New light tank, 105mm cannon apparently. Article about it says it’s based on the VN20 ifv, but it looks more like a ZBD04A hull to me. I feel like this is probably just gonna be offered as a cheaper alternative to the VT-5 at this year’s Zhuhai exhibition.

I think you are right. VN-20 hull is much larger than this.

export ZBD-04A called VN-11A, this could be VN-11B, considering 105mm VN-22 is called VN-22B.

No autoloader since the back of the turret is shorter then standard autoloader on any 105.
i think this little guy is for Thailand since they lack of IFV/Light tank.

maybe it use the auto loader like 2S25?
just a guess cause i think the 105mm round cant use that auto loader🤪

Are you sure its a export tank?

Most likely, it is, cause PLA dont need a IFV with 105mm canno, they already got ZTQ15 and ZTD05
