Type 63 Chinese armoured personnel carrier
Chinese YW531 APC in Royal Australian Armoured Corps Tank Museum, Puckapunyal, Victoria, Australia.
The Type 63 (industrial designation YW531) is a Chinese armoured personnel carrier. It was the first armoured vehicle designed in China without Soviet assistance. The design is simple and is comparable to other APCs of its time such as the M113. Approximately 3,000 were produced by Norinco, and around 2,300 are still in service.
