ZTD-05 is China’s knockoff version of Russia’s BMP-3 armored infantry fighting vehicle. It functions much like a regular amphibious tank with a 106 mm rifled gun that can fire armor-piercing high-explosive anti-tank shells. It has an advanced stabilizing mechanism enabling it to fire accurately while operating in choppy waters.
The ZDT-05 is viewed as one of the fastest and most deadly amphibious assault vehicles in the world.
