The WZ551 is a 6x6 amphibious wheeled armored personnel carrier used by the People's Liberation Army and developed and built by Norinco. It is armed with a French 25mm GIAT cannon that was acquired through a deal between France and China. The vehicle is also armed with a coaxial 7.62mm machinegun which can be replaced with an HJ-8 ATGM launcher if necessary. Another variant is armed with a single 12.7mm machine gun, called the WZ523 instead.
In Battlefield 2, the WZ551 is the Armored Personal Carrier (APC) used by the People's Liberation Army. Its counterparts are the USMC LAV-25 and the MEC BTR-90. It differs from both in that it has a slow rate of fire for its main cannon and it has only one rear facing fire port.
