Sensational Spy Shots of a fiery red SUV with quite some Bling around. This is the Beijing Auto Zhanshen, a prototype-slash-concept for a true passenger-car variant of the Beijing Auto BJ2022 Yongshi (Brave Warrior). The existence of the project is interesting because Beijing Auto will soon launch the new BJ80 series, the semi-official successor of that very same BJ2022.

A brand new variant of the Beijing Auto BJ2022 ‘Brave Warrior’ army utility vehicle. This is the attack-helicopter-pull variant, seen here with a freakin’ Z-10, nicknamed the ‘Fierce Thunderbolt’. The vehicle seems to be based on the three-door pickup, with an extended cabin for the pull-operator.

This is the bad-ass armored version of the Beijing BJ2022, seen on a police equipment exhibition in Beijing. The base BJ2022, which was developed with a lot of American help, is only slightly armored or not at all. Its role in the Chinese army is mostly scout or communications, duties for which speed matters more than protection.

Earlier on I wrote an article about how AM General helped China develop its Humvee-clone, the Dongfeng EQ 2050. But AM General was not the only American company helping to arm the Chinese army, there was another one; it was Chrysler.
Pic above shows the Beijing-Jeep 2022. Beijing-Jeep was a Chinese-American joint venture with Beijing Auto Works (BAW) and Chrysler. The Beijing-Jeep 2022 later changed name to Beijing 2022 and it now the most widely used 4×4 in the Chinese army.
How did this all happen?
