CJ-10-GLCM-TEL-2009-1S.jpg

 

Carrier vehicles for the DH-10A/DH-2000 series of long range cruise missile (range "in excess of" 1,500km according to US defense sources, though claims as high as 3,000-4,000 have been reported). Seeing as how they're nuclear capable, they're only known to be operated by the PLA's Second Artillery Corps which is in charge of China's nuclear arsenal, defense and strategy.

What the eff is that gun?

That is just usual autocannon, but because it bounce around so much, engineers reinforced it to incrase accuracy of burst/automatic fire. Same problem with Ukrainian-made 30 mm AC on BMP-3 and BTR-82, for example.

^This.

 

The caliber is just the usual 30x165mm, though, that setup is particularly useful when riding on rough waters.

Also worthy to note some other amphibious vehicles use it, but on a hydroplaning, deep water capable vehicle like the this it makes the most sense.

 

Also part of the reason why the 105mm gun variant on the light tank version is unique to that vehicle.
