Early PLA Amtrac mods - the LVT(A)-4. A surviving example
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Early PLA Amtrac mods - the LVT(A)-4. A surviving example

The first Amtracs operated by the Chinese PLA were those captured from KMT forces during the civil war. The PLA even did some interesting modifications on them.
The photo that started it all for me:
