Pics of the new Chinese IFV designated VN17

Thanks to Costas TT for the pic!

A gunner and commander optic setup for efficient targeting and killing of enemy material, two anti-tank missiles on turret sides, additional armor on the sides and front (have no idea of the type but its reminiscent of the AJAX Scout setup) and finally a large caliber cannon (unknown what size).

Don't see any secondary weapons, not even coax for the main gun.

How are the Chinese viewing this vehicle I wonder.  I'm guessing that they're gonna build a dedicated APC version with multiple machineguns to provide support for dismounted infantry while these vehicles tangle with enemy IFVs and fortifications.  This could be more tankette than IFV.
