First clear shots of new NORINCO VN-1 (aka Type 08) 8x8 in Thai service during an exercise. Previously, all we saw of them were on trains with the turrets covered.

From a Thai Facebook page:

Armed 30 mm automatic cannon, 7.62 mm co-axle gun, 40 mm automatic grenade launcher, 76 mm smoke grenade launcher, all controlled from inside the vehicle.


In addition to all the weapons mentioned above It can also be equipped with 3 additional Red Arrow 73D missile weapons.
But looks like the initial Thai buy is just cannon/MG/AGL, not any ATGM options...
