notes"The VN-11 is the export variant of the Chinese ZBD-04 IFV. The VN-11 layout, structure and performance is mostly the same as the ZBD-04; however it is assessed there are minor differences between the two platforms as a result of PLA operational security requirements. Although it is suspected that China may have sold the VN-11 to other countries, there are no verified exports of this platform."

notes"Designation for ZBD-04 prototype."
name"ZBD-04"
notes"Baseline model in service PLA."
name"ZBD-04 HJ-8"
notes"Based on original ZBD-04 with four additional HJ-8 anti-tank missile mounted on the turret."
name"ZBD-04A"
notes"The ZBD-04A (industrial designation WZ502G, sometimes referred to as ZBD-08) is an improved variant that sacrifices amphibious performance for better armor protection; add-on armor can be fitted, and the frontal arc can withstand 30 mm rounds along with side skirts added. Although the vehicle is still amphibious, able to propel itself by its tracks to ford lakes and rivers, it lacks waterjets and can no longer operate in open sea."
name"ZBD-04A AT (AFT-10 Anti-Tank Missile Carrier)"
notes"ZBD-04A's chassis works as the mobile launching platform for AFT-10 (HJ-10) anti-tank missile. Noted the AFT-10 is a specific version of HJ-10 missile that designed for firing from vehicle launching platform such as ZBD-04A."
