Description: The Type 92 is a wheeled 6x6 armored vehicle developed by NORINCO for use by the People's Liberation Army (PLA) rapid reaction forces. Type 92 development was based on the unsuccessful Type 90 wheeled armored vehicle introduced in the 1980s. NORINCO designed the Type 92 in two variants: infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) and armored personnel carrier (APC) which is also known as Type 92A. The vehicle family achieved initial operational within PLA in 1995 (Type 92) and 1997 (Type 92A). Over 3,800 Type 92/A vehicles have been produced so far.

The Type 92 is powered by a more powerful 320-hp diesel engine than its predecessor allowing for a top speed of 85 kph on road and a new hull design. The vehicle was also provided with two propellers for swimming and a central tire inflating system. Type 92 IFV armaments consist of a turret-mounted 25mm cannon and a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun. Type 92A is provided with a roof-mounted 12.7mm. The crew and passenger seating capacity varies from a three-man crew and nine troops to a one man crew and 11 troops in the APC version. The WMA301 is tank destroyer version equipped with a 105mm gun.
