China's Xinjiang Military Command stationed near the Indian border has acquired a new type of all-terrain vehicle. The vehicle was tailored to suit the needs of the troops after several on-the-spot investigations. 

It can traverse 35-degree slopes and transport 1.5 tons of cargo to troops stationed at elevations over 5,000 meters. Logistics assistance is critical to the military, especially in regions with difficult natural settings.

As winter approaches and tensions between China and India rise anew, the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Xinjiang Military Command stationed near the Indian border acquired a new type of all-terrain vehicle developed to offer logistics support for the plateau border defence soldiers.


The unit that received the new vehicle is stationed in a high-altitude, snowy border region that is extremely cold, devoid of oxygen, and has a complicated topography, posing logistical challenges, including supply transit, according to the command's official WeChat account.


The vehicle was tailored to suit the needs of the troops after several on-the-spot investigations, as it uses caterpillar tracks that aren't made of metal. These tracks are strong, don't harm road surfaces, have a lot of movement, and can handle a lot of weight.


Even in adverse weather, the vehicle can effortlessly cross challenging terrains such as shallow river banks, deserts, mountains, and snowfields, and give solid assistance to plateau troop supply transportation.


"Logistics assistance is critical to the military, especially in regions with difficult natural settings. On Monday, the semi-official Global Times news site reported a Chinese military analyst as stating, "This particularly developed all-terrain vehicle will serve this function excellently and allow the troops to remain at 100 per cent battle readiness at all times."


According to a report by state-run China Central Television (CCTV), certain PLA units began using this sort of vehicle in January, although it was unclear whether the Xinjiang Military Command was one of them.


The new all-terrain vehicle can traverse 35-degree slopes and transport 1.5 tons of cargo to troops stationed at elevations over 5,000 meters.


The vehicle's arrival coincides with the failure of China and India to achieve an agreement during the 13th round of corps commander-level discussions on matters relating to the western sector of the China-India boundary.
