Knowing Tianjin Airfield from many years ago as a samll place I simply can't imagine what a partially dismantled Skycrane has to do there. Tianjin as such is in the middle of nowhere, no lumber anywhere but Rice paddies.

IMHO the Sik was stripped down for a long-distance transportation (e.g. in an An-124), the yellow temporary main landing gear is used to raise the copter to a horizontal position for towing on the ground, and the fixed yellow attachments to the outriggers are merely a safety device to ensure that the tail doesn't hit the ground in the lowered position. Or it could be a Chinese clone of the S-64 and the designers through their ineptitude simply forgot to add a few parts (to reduce the empty weight?).
