The Chinese defense company Shaanxi Baoji Special Vehicles Manufacturing first introduced its new lightweight armored vehicle China Tiger 4x4 at the Eurosatory-2012 international exhibition.
China Tiger is created on the basis of a truck 4x4 with cross-country capability, due to which it has high mobility in off-road conditions.
The ìóðøñäó has a crew of 2 people - the commander and the driver, and can transport 9 fully equipped infantrymen. It has already undergone extensive off-road tests and demonstrated high mobility on all terrain conditions and in all weather conditions.
China Tiger provides effective protection against the Chinese 7.62-mm Type 56 machine gun. In the process of testing, the general director of Shaanxi Baoji Special Vehicles Manufacturing, Mr. Wang Bao Ho, was inside the vehicle.
In 2015, it became known that Bolivia ordered 24 units of China Tiger with a total contract value of $ 7.7 million. The delivery was completed in August 2016. In August 2017, two such vehicles were transferred to the Bahamas, and in September 2017, Somalia received 12 units.
