Belarus to receive CS/VN3 armored vehicles
The Belarus Ministry of Defence has announced that the Belarusian armed forces is set to receive a batch of modernised CS/VN3 armoured vehicles from China, starting from 21 June.
The equipment will be supplied in accordance with the agreement between Belarus and China on gratuitous military and technical assistance.
A group of Belarusian servicemen recently received training to maintain and operate the CS/VN3 at the Chinese plant based in Chongqing China.
In 2015, China supplied the Belarusian armed forces with the FAW HongQi L5 (Red Banner) vehicles, while a few years earlier the country delivered DongFeng Mengshi EQ2050 cross-country vehicles known as Bogatyr.
