I recently learned that a company called SAIC built/converted MD-82s to MD-82Ts. The MD-82T is a Chinese-assembled MD-82 which is equipped with a dual tandem main landing gear to permit full payload operations into Chinese airports with light-duty runways and taxiways. I've been trying to find photos of this aircraft that clearly show the tandem main gear, but have had no luck whatsoever, so I thought I'd see what the experts can come up with. If you can find and post any, I'd greatly appreciate it!
