   The GCZ-110 is a Chinese multi-purpose armored engineer and recovery vehicle. It is based on a Type 96 main battle tank chassis. This armored engineer vehicle is in service with the Chinese military.

   The GCZ-110 is modeled after the Russian IMR series armored engineer vehicles. However the GCZ-110 lacks some capabilities of the IMR, but instead has some other features.

   Turret has been removed and replaced by a rotating superstructure, fitted with a telescopic 16 t capacity crane. The telescopic boom extends to 3.5 m. The crane can lift up to 3 t while in motion. In traveling order the crane is traversed to the rear. This machine also has a large dozer blade at the front. It can be used in a V-shape or straight configuration. During earthworking operations the dozer blade has a capacity of around 250 m. When not in use the blade is folded upwards.

   The main role of this machine is to support mechanized troops. The GCZ-110 can be used for various roles, including earthmoving operations, road clearing, grading, filling ditches. This machine can also perform recovery and craning operations. It can also tow damaged or disabled vehicles to the nearest assembly points or repair units.

   This machine is operated by a crew of 3.

   Protection of the GCZ-110 should be similar to that of the Type 96 main battle tank. This engineer vehicle was designed to operate under enemy fire. The GCZ-110 carries no defensive armament.

   The GCZ-110 is powered by diesel engine, developing 1 000 hp.
