Images posted on Chinese online forums in early January suggest that China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) may be equipping its marine corps with the NORINCO ZTL-11 8x8 amphibious assault vehicle.
在一月初贴在中国网络论坛上的图片表明,中国人民解放军(PAL)可能为其海军陆战队装备北方工业公司(NORINCO)ZTL-11 8x8两栖突击车。
 
Published on the social media platform Weibo on 11 January, the images show the armoured vehicle, which is currently in service with the light mechanised units of the PLA Ground Forces, painted in marine corps camouflage being driven on the streets of what some say is China's Hainan Island.
在1月11日发布在社交媒体平台新浪微博上,图片显示装甲车,目前在解放军地面部队的轻机械化部队服役,有人说在中国的海南岛涂装海军陆战队伪装在街道上行使。
 
To date the two marine corps amphibious brigades under the command of the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) have employed several tracked amphibious armoured platforms intended primarily to secure beachheads. The recently released images suggest that the marines may now also have a wheeled amphibious assault vehicle in the ZTL-11.
目前中国人民解放军海军(PLAN)指挥下的两个海军陆战队两栖旅所采用的几种履带式两栖装甲平台的目的主要是为了确保滩头阵地。最近发布的图像表明,海军陆战队可能现在也采用ZTL-11型轮式两栖突击车。 
 
First seen in 2012, the ZTL-11 is derived from the ZBL-08 (often referred to as the ZBD-09) family of 8x8 vehicles, but uses an aft-mounted engine for greater stability. The vehicle is armed with a 105 mm gun.
2012年第一次看到的ZTL-11型来自ZBL-08型(通常称为ZBD-09型)系列8X8车辆,但为了更稳定使用一台尾部安装发动机。车辆配备了一门105毫米火炮。
