Potential Chinese Ground Force Additions

Hi all, I created this topic for sourcing unique ground vehicles for China that could be added to WT, especially ones for lower ranks of the tech tree, focusing on basically anything moving with at least some anti tank capability.

If any of u have suggestions, comments, or more sources on these do let me know. I will be expanding this list too whenever I see cool vehicles/etc that haven’t been added already or aren’t well known about.

Light Tanks/Vehicles

List
(ROCA) Wansheng 2 万乘二

M24 turret+gun mated with CM21 chassis, prototype only.

(ROCA) BA-3

During the Sino Japanese War, China received a lot of much needed Soviet equipment. China also had many of their own armored cars but the BA-3/6 is likely one of the only ones viable for WT given it has a viable anti tank gun.

(Manchu puppet state) BA-10

One BA-10 was captured by Japanese during the battle of Khakalin Gol from Soviet or Mongolian army and put to use by the Manchu puppet state, the 2nd photo shows a painted insignia. Like the BA-3 this also has the 45mm 20K gun.

I think we can omit the copy and paste content. There are many independently designed and modified vehicles to choose from
some of them are familiar to us. For example, obj211 and wz132 use 76mm gun
as low-level vehicle (rank2-3)

wz132 also has two versions using 100mm gun

I don’t know the origin of this vehicle. At present, there seems to be no information about it, only two photos

006m5cl1ly1gm73g6pa52j30ct0csjz3
006m5cl1ly1gm73hrii1jj30a70amn2k

and these. suitable as a Rank1 vehicle

Also am for it, at least with what I suggested I am trying to find vehicles that would suit rank 1-3/4 first, the higher ranks don’t have as much of an issue with originality. Also do note while there can be a lot of photos or accounts of these, I still find issues with finding reliable sources/documentation which is why I reached out with what I suggest.

The 59-16 is a brand new design, while the two photos of the 7788 are modified with the su76 chassis

I see, if its a different vehicle I am not aware of it then.

I think 59-16 only has a mock-up?

perhaps so, later they chose a better WZ131, which is the type62

Incredibly interesting photos, thank you very much for sharing.

You do realize you can’t like your own replies? How does someone this dumb even make an account?

It doesn’t look like an amphibious tank
It may be a foreign trade vehicle, or it may be provided for the marine corps

Its got that large front, almost shaped like a boat.

ZTQ15 and VT5 too.
and it doesn’t have a wave deflector and is also equipped with additional armor.
I think this tank is a Marine Corps light tank that focuses on defending against HEAT ammunition
