Can anyone recognize the tracked vehicle on the left in this pic?

Since Warlord plastic 28mm Naps seem to vary in size a bit can anyone tell me how their late French infantry boxes compare with Front Rank or Calpe in size?

Also how do their new Prussian Landwehr compare with the old in size? I haven't seen any comparison pics for these yet.

Looks like a Chinese Type 90 to me.

Scott, I think you're correct. It is interesting, because online there is no evidence or news of the Chinese supplying Zimbabwe with Type 90 APC.

It could be a Type 89, the Zimbabweans certainly have some of those.

Interesting topic mix by the BUG.

I've started another thread for my query re Warlord figures. Clearly one of us is in the wrong place!

I agree with above

Warlord are supplying Zimbabwe with Chinese APC's now!? Wow, they have grown fast!

I saw a pic on the news today of what is going on there. And yep that was an older ChiCom APC. Forget the nomenclature ! Will look it up on GHQ.

I'm going with Type 89 … but regardless it's ChiCom …

I can tell you right now. That is a Chinese ZSD-89/ Type89 APC. They also used the ZSD-89-II Infantry Fighting Vehicle… basically one of those with a 25mm autocannon position like that on the WZ-551 wheeled APCs.
