   The GCZ-112 is a Chinese armored engineer vehicle. It is based on a Type 96 main battle tank chassis. This armored engineer vehicle is in service with the Chinese military.

   Thie GCZ-112 resembles a Russian IMR series machines. Though this armored engineer vehicles lacks some capabilities of the IMR. It accompanies assault groups. Its main role is to clear routes and various obstacles for advancing main battle tanks and other armored vehicles. The GCZ-112 can be used for various roles, including earthmoving operations, road clearing, grading, filling ditches.

   Turret of the Type 96 has been removed and replaced with a superstructure and telescopic excavator arm. 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.

   This machine is operated by a crew of 3.

   Protection of the GCZ-112 should be similar to that of the Type 96 main battle tank. This engineer vehicle was designed to operate under enemy fire. The GCZ-112 carries no defensive armament.

   The GCZ-112 is powered by diesel engine, developing 1 000 hp.
