Ywc Iraqi apc used to tow artillery?
Posted by Tankluver on Sunday, September 16, 2018 4:43 PM

Would the Chinese made ywc apc he used to tow artillery at all? I’m thinking of a diorama with a Russian Bs-3 100 mm anti tank gun and want to have it being towed by the Iraqi ywc apc, would this be feasible?

I don't think it is physically possible for the Chinese YW to pull a field piece as they have no tow pintle on them.  From what I saw while in Iraq (OIF 1, '03 invasion) most of their field pieces were pulled by trucks or Soviet/Russian MTLBs.

Iraqi YW531, notice no tow pintle on the rear.
