After announcing PLA Main Battle Tank ZTZ96B plastic model kit in 1/35 scale, MENG is about to offer a PLA crew set to complement the MBT.
HS-011 1/35 - PLA Armored Vehicle Crew

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army has received modernized new equipment in the new era. This change is particularly obvious for PLA’s armored units. Their old Russian style uniforms have been replaced by new equipment like modular combat equipment and improved military boots. The PLA armored units’ combat power has been greatly enhanced by the new modern main battle equipment like the PLZ05 self-propelled howitzer and ZTZ96B main battle tanks.

MENG’s latest figure kit, the HS-011 PLA Tank Crew plastic model kit contains five figures of different gestures. This kit can be used with modern PLA armor like the PLZ05 and ZTZ96B. PLA soldiers’ determined faces and good postures are perfectly replicated on the 1/35 scale models.

It is about bloody time that we finally got a crew for all the modern Chinese AFV's available these days that isn't a medicore resin stiff figure.

The set looks good. I will probably buy a box. This will help with the modern PLA armor that is available.

most of the Meng 1/34th tank crews has same pose,what about crews loading ammo,or different pose except in the tank it self.

Any PLA figure sets are welcome, of course, but I agree about having different poses, like a crew loading ammo, etc. and another thing - am I the only one who thinks the figures' facial features don't look particularly Chinese? Jerry
