The prototype of Chinese 4x4 amphibious armoured vehicle
     
The layout of the vehicle is similar to all 4x4 modern armoured vehicle personnel carrier with the crew at the front and troops compartment at the rear.

The vehicle features a V-shaped hull which offers more protection against mine blast. To reach the top speed of 50 km/h in the water, the vehicle uses compact pump jets alongside retracting wheels to reduce resistance during a high-speed on the water.

Without any protection, the vehicle has a total weight of 5.5 tons. It can be fitted with armour protection and weapon station mounted on the top of the hull. In this case, it can reach a top speed in the water from 20 to 29 km/h.

The first amphibious tests of the vehicle have been carried out in China showing that the vehicle is more faster than European or American similar vehicles currently available on the military market.
