   The Type 07P armored personnel carrier was developed by Poly Technologies. It is commonly known as the Type 07P, however its actual designation might be different. Development commenced in the 1990s. It was influenced by Western and Russian armored personnel carriers. Its first pictures appeared in around 2006. It seems that this armored personnel carrier was aimed to meet a Chinese army requirement. Eventually the PLA selected another 8x8 APC design, which entered service as the ZBL-09. Instead the Type 07P was offered for export customers. It is currently in service with Cameroon and possibly some other countries.

   Armor of this APC provides all-round protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters. It is likely that the front arc withstands 12.7-mm rounds.

   The Type 07P can be armed with various weapons. It is being proposed with a one-man turret, armed with 30-mm cannon and coaxial 7.62-mm machine gun. Other weapon options, such as remotely controlled weapon station are also available.

   The Type 07 APC accommodates about 7 - 9 fully-equipped troops. Passengers enter and leave the vehicle via rear doors. Some models have side doors or side hatches. In case of emergency troops leave the vehicle via roof hatches. There are some firing ports provided for the troops.

   This armored personnel carrier is powered by a turbocharged diesel engine. Engine is located at the front. It seems that vehicle is fitted with a central tyre inflation system. It seems that this armored personnel carrier is not amphibious.

   A number of variants were developed.
