While both vehicles might be used by the PLA. Do you know what the initial production dates of the vehicles are in China. I think that the Hummer knockoff probably comes too late for PLA fielding in the V1 or V2 timelines...

Not sure about the T-55 variant either.

One thing those of us in the DC group have looked at it that the Chinese Industrial Base is either in occupied territiory, or severely impaired due to airstrikes, on the factories, the transportation system, and the electrical grid, which is one reason that the PLA looks to the west for both high and low end military equipment in late 1995 through October 1996...

this has the net effect of providing an primer on the wartime economic mobilization of the west (we've mainly looked at the US & some of Canada), with increased orders for tactical Trucks (HEMMT's & HMMWVs), as well as munitions (high tech & Low), uniforms, boots, field rations, basically all the things that China needs since it's workforce is mobilized for a conventional war, or supporting it... and the effects of air attacks on the national economy, not to mention loss of industry in the Soviet occupation zone.
