History[edit | edit source]

Class: Fire Support Vehicle
Developed: 1987-2004
Service: 2004+
Vehicles Built: cca 20-30
Operators: China

The PTL-02 development began with the Type 92 IFV (also known as the WZ551), which was introduced to the public in 1986. It was a moderately successful vehicle that was exported to approximately two dozen countries and produced in some limited numbers for Chinese service as well. Its chassis was later used for the older Type 87 tank destroyer, which was not a very successful design and was produced in very limited numbers.

The PTL-02 light wheeled Fire Support Vehicle is an enhanced version of the Type 87, produced between 2004 and 2005. It's armed with a 100mm low-recoil smoothbore gun capable of firing APFSDS, HEAT and HE shells. The PTL-02 was produced only in very limited numbers and, like many other Chinese vehicles, its development history, design details and tactical use remain a bit of a mystery. An alternative export version exists and is armed with a 105mm NATO-standard rifled gun. This version is known under the nickname Assaulter. A few vehicles of this export variant are appearing in the service of the militaries of Cameroon, Chad, Djibouti and Myanmar.
