The amorphous Chinese entity known as Poly Technologies highlighted its status as authorised reseller of decommissioned People’s Liberation Army (PLA) equipment at Zhuhai Air Show 2018. 

The main focus of the company's outside display area at the event was armoured vehicles, with a focus on Type 59 and Type 069 main battle tanks as well as Type 063A amphibious tanks. Their fire control systems, power plants, sights and armaments can all be enhanced.
