Tank Destroyer hits on a Porsche Cayman in China

An interesting car crash in China where a PTL-02 tank destroyer crashed into the flank of a bright yellow Porsche Cayman sporty car. The accident happened at noon in a tunnel in the great city of Chongqing.

The PTL-02, apparently without any police escort, wanted to change lane for unknown reasons, and hit on the Porsche. Tank destroyers don’t have indicators but the usually do have mirrors fitted. The army driver must have missed the poor Porsche completely.

The three passengers of the Cayman were unhurt. Lady in blue is looking kinda scared, and the PTL-02 is indeed a monster. Weighing 19.000 kilo, fully armored, and armed with a bitch 100 mm main gun, designed for taking out enemy tanks. Power comes from a 320hp eight-cylinder turbo diesel. Top speed on the road is 85 kilometer per hour. The Porsche didn’t have a chance…

That appears to be a self-propelled mortar, not a tank destroyer, which cannot be wheeled vehicles due to the much higher mobility requirements.

It really is a tank destroyer. China has zillions of them:

No, it’s not. It’s a self-propelled mortar called PLL05.
