Zhuhai Airshow Vehicle Display is shaping up....

Thanks to MicMac80 for the link!

Am I mistaken or is this the first "uparmored" Chinese 8x8 we've seen?  The extra armor on the turret and sides is obvious.  What we don't know is if its a local development, stolen tech or a mixture of the two.  If the Chinese are gonna get into the "adding armor" game then I wonder what the implications are?  Is there view of combat in the future changing?  Will we see a swing toward heavier base vehicles to gain the added protection that they desire?
I consider the above IFV as being the best in Chinese service.  They took the Russian design and tweaked it but the changes make sense.  Oh and it also seems to have additional armor applied.
