Beijing BY5020TSL

Notes: This is an amphibious jeep-like vehicle similar in form and concept to the Russian GAZ-46. It is a very versatile vehicle, but one of its faults is the quality of the standard steel body, which does not resist corrosion very well and is not recommended for use in salt water. A stainless steel-coated version is available that is far better in rust resistance, but it costs $1000 more and is one step more rare. It is otherwise a fast and agile vehicle, though its load-carrying capability is a bit lacking. Most of the users of this vehicle were Chinese or North Korean Naval Infantry or special operations forces.

Norinco FAV

Notes: A very new vehicle to the Chinese Army, the proper designation of their FAV is as yet unknown. The Norinco FAV was developed for airborne, special operations and light forces as a small, fast raiding vehicle. It is basically a heavily-modified BJ2020 jeep, turned into a vehicle similar in concept and design to the US Chenowith-made FAVs. The Norinco FAV is a 4x4 vehicle using a lightweight gasoline engine and transmission. It is a fast, light vehicle capable of carrying a variety weapons on two weapons mounts: one in front of the commanderís position for a medium or light weapon such as a medium or light machinegun or SAW, and one on the rollbar capable of mounting weapons as heavy as a 23mm autocannon or heavy ATGM launcher. The small size of the vehicle allows several to be placed aboard a cargo aircraft or sling-loaded on helicopters.

Twilight 2000 Notes: The Norinco FAV does not exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline.
