China Continues to Support Cambodia

China Continues to Support Cambodia 12 September, 2019

In order to support the Cambodian government and strengthen the friendship between the two countries, China has donated the Shaanxi Baoji Tiger 4x4 light armoured vehicles to the Royal Cambodian Army (RCA). The armoured vehicles can be armed with the heavy machine gun, or an automatic grenade launcher, and can carry a crew of 2 and up to 9 passengers. The Tiger is powered by a Cummins diesel engine.

Relations between Cambodia and China gained momentum after the two countries established a comprehensive strategic partnership in 2010. At the heart of the relationship is Phnom Penh's close embrace of China's Belt and Road Initiative.
