The PTL02 wheeled assault tank destroyer armed with a 105mm rifled gun was developed by NORINCO for the PLA new light (rapid reaction) mechanised infantry divisions. The vehicle has a three-man turret derived from the Type 88 MBT, and a 6X6 wheeled chassis based on the WZ551 APC. Chinese officials have confirmed that the vehicle is now in production.
Among a variety of self-propelled artillery systems based on the wheeled chassis of the WZ551 APC family, the PTL02 assault tank destroyer is the first to have entered active service with the PLA. Currently the vehicle is deployed in the artillery regiment of newly formed light mechanised infantry divisions based around WZ551 wheeled armoured vehicles. At least three light mechanised infantry divisions equipped with both wheeled and tracked fighting vehicles have been reportedly formed, including the elite 127 th Division (under 54 th Group Army) in Jinan Military Region.
Compared to the conventional full-tracked fighting vehicles, the wheedled chassis of the PTL02 enables it to be deployed rapidly via motorway/road networks. With a combat weight of 19t, it can also be fitted into a medium-size transport aircraft. A Y-8 may carry two of such vehicles and an IL-76MD may carry three.
The 105mm main gun of the tank destroyer is capable of engaging lightly armoured vehicles and fortifications, but is unable to destroy a heavily armed main battle tanks (MBT). NORINCO is developing new tank destroyers based on a more powerful 120mm smoothbore main gun and a heavier 8X8 wheeled chassis.
The PTL02 is based on a number of mature technologies and designs. The system is carried on a WZ551 6X6 wheeled armoured personnel carrier, with the powerpack in front, combat compartment in middle, and ammunitions at rear. The tank destroyer has a crew has a crew of four (commander, gunner, loader and driver). The three-man turret is developed from the turret of the Type 88 MBT.
PTL02以许多的成熟技术和设计为基础。系统装配在一辆WZ551 6X6 轮式装甲人员输送车（APC）上，动力装置前置，战斗隔舱在中部和弹药在后部。坦克歼击车全体组员四名（指挥官、炮手、装弹员和驾驶员）。三人炮塔由88式主战坦克（MBT）的炮塔发展。
The 105mm main gun and its fire control system onboard the PTL02 was derived from the Type 88 main battle tank.PTL02的105 毫米主炮和它的火控系统起源于88式主战坦克。
The main weapon is a 105mm high-pressure, low-recoil rifled gun, which can fire armour piercing fin stabilised discarding sabot (APFSDS) with tungsten core, as well as HEAT and HE rounds. The vehicle carries 30 rounds.
Fire accuracy is attained by a primitive FCS light spot fire control system with IR night vision and laser rangefinder input. The same fire control system is also fitted on the Type 88 MBT.
China has also developed the 105mm gun-launched missile based on the Russian Bastion technology. The missile has a maximum range of 4,000~5,000m and a single hit probability (against static targets) of over 90%. As well as being used for anti-armour warfare, the missile can also be used to attack low-flying air targets such as helicopters.
Auxiliary weapons include one 12.7mm/50-calibre anti-aircraft machinegun mounted on the command cupola, with a maximum fire-range of 2,000m and 480 rounds, and a 7.62mm co-axial machinegun with 800 rounds. A four-barrel smoke grenade launcher is mounted on each side of the turret.
The armour protection of the PTL02 is fairly limited, only capable of defending against 7.62mm calibre weapons. There are four smoke grenade launchers on each side of the turret. The crew members are protected by a collective NBC protection system and an automatic fire suppressing system.
The tank destroyer is powered by a German-designed BF8L413F 4-stroke, 8-cylinder, turbo-charged, air-cooled diesel engine with a standard power of 235kW (320hp) at 2,500r/min.
The vehicle has 9 forward and 1 reverse gears, with mechanical gear box, power assisted steering and independent suspensions. Its a central inflating system can adjust the tire pressure according to road conditions. The tires can support the vehicle to travel 100km at a speed of 30km/h after being damaged.
