By the looks of the image - this was a few years ago. Or recent replenishing/augmenting supplies of VT5's. VT5's are specialized to fight skirmishes in hilly terrain i.e. hilltracts in our case.

Armament
The main armament of the VT5 / Type 15 or ZTQ-15 consists of one 105 mm rifled gun with a thermal sleeve and fume extractor which has a maximum firing range of 3,000m. The main armament also includes an automatic loading system. The empty cartridge cases are ejected via a small hatch located at the rear of the turret. The VT5 carried a total of 38 rounds of 105mm ammunition which can include Armour-Piercing Fin-Stabilized Discarding Sabot (APFSDS), High-Explosive Anti-Tank (HEAT), High Explosive (HE), and gun-launched anti-tank guided missile. The missile has a maximum range of 5,000m and is fitted with a tandem HEAT (High Explosive Anti-Tank) warhead able to destroy armored or tanks protected with reactive armor (ERA). The second armament of the VT5 includes one remotely operated weapon station mounted on the roof of the turret which is armed with a 12.7mm machine gun and one 40mm automatic grenade launcher. Two banks of three electrically operated smoke-grenade dischargers are mounted on each side at the rear of the turret and coupled to a laser detector. The turret is fully stabilized to offer high accuracy against static and moving targets.​

Design and protection
The layout of the VT5 / Type 15 or ZTQ-15 is similar to the main battle tank with a crew of three, including the driver seated at the front center of the hull, gunner, and commander in the turret. The VT5 can be fitted with two different armor configurations. The hull and the turret of the VT5 is made with all-welded steel armor which provides stand protection against the firing of small arms and shell splinters. To increase the protection, the VT5 can be equipped with advanced composite armor and/or explosive reactive armor (ERA). At AirShow China 2016, the VT5 was also fitted with slat armor (wire cage armor) on the turret sides and either side of the hull to increase protection against rocket-propelled grenades (RPG) and anti-tank guided missiles. The VT5 has a combat weight from 33 to 36 tons depending on the armor configuration and measures 9.20 m in length, 3.30 m (with armor package) in width, and 2.50 m in height without the remotely operated weapon station.​

Mobility
The VT5 / Type 15 or ZTQ-15 is motorized with a 1,000 hp electronically controlled diesel engine mounted at the rear of the hull. and coupled to a hydro-mechanical full automatic transmission with a pivot steering capability and a cooling system. It can run at a maximum road speed of 70 km/h, 35 to 40 km/h in off-road conditions with a maximum cruising range of 450 km. The VT5 can climb vertical obstacles of 0.85 m, a gradient of 60%, and a fording depth of 1.1 m without preparation. The suspension of the VT5 consists of six road wheels with an idler at the front, a drive sprocket at the rear, and track return rollers. The upper parts of the suspension are protected by an armor package. The VT5 can be fitted with external additional fuel drums mounted at the rear of the hull to extend the cruising range.​
