We already knew Libyan rebels were using China-made BAW 212’s and Zhongxing pick up trucks. Today comes a new one: a Greatwall Wingle 3 pick up truck cruising trough the desert (it is the vehicle in the back ground, up front a mighty multiple rocket launcher).

Yesterday I posted a story on a lone BJ212 in the hands of the Libyan rebels liberating Tripoli. Today a nice set of Chinese Zhongxing pick up trucks used by the rebels to transport men and firepower over Libyan roads. The vehicles are non-army and were delivered by Zhongxing to Libya just before the fighting started.

Pic published today of Libyan rebels liberation Tripoli, capital of Libya. The vehicle is a military version of the Beijing Auto Works (BAW) BJ212. It is likely an ex-Libyan army vehicle taken by the rebels. In good hands… This military version is called T75 -105. T75 is an army number, 105 stands for the size of the gun, 105mm indeed.
