That's the first M13/40 mock-up I've seen on a universal carrier.

It's got a big white star on the side as well which is interesting.

It almost looks like they were trying to do a Lee without knowing, beyond the broadest possible description, what a Lee looked like.

most of Fiat's tanks looked more or less like that, and if anything the Lee looks like a M19/40 as the Lee wasn't introduced till 41.

I have no idea why it sports a Star as it was used in this movie:

'The Tank of 8th September' 1960

that's actually a pretty good mock up from the front.

By counting the number of pot lids... erhm I meant roadwheels, the flimsy design, lettering and mounted soldier...

 

It's obviously a T-62

 

 

 

Being Chinese I'd like to know the story behind this tank bicycle...

It's a mockup of the likely enemy's armoured forces by the National Police.

It's a Chinese mock-up alright...

 

Apparently the Chinese and Russians had some border dispute over a river up North...

China obviously didn't have any tanks so I guess the mock-up was for training purposes. 

(What was what on it and what to avoid)

 

I was told about a Russian column of tanks sinking through the ice of a river on the border and then Chinese soldiers pulling them out for research with only farm tractors... Unbeknownst to the Chinese, there were Russian snipers with some sort of night-scopes...

 

The captured tanks are on display in some Chinese military museum.

Sounds kind of like what happened with the T-62. In a border skirmish, a tank lost a track, and heavy artillery fire did not allow the Soviets to recover it. The tank was recovered by the Chinese and used for research. I guess it could be in a museum these days.

 

Interestingly enough, when this happened with the Tiger tank, nobody on the Soviet side moved a muscle to drag the new tank over to their side to examine it.
