Description: The ZBD05, formerly known as the ZBD2000, is an armored amphibious assault vehicle developed to meet the requirements of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Marines. The fully-tracked ZBD05 entered service in mid-2000s with the PLA Marine Corps. Compared to Western amphibious assault vehicles, the ZBD05 has greater firepower thanks to its 105mm cannon but poor performance at sea. Externally, it looks like the US Marine Corps Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV). The ZBD05 vehicle represents a significant step forward in the PLA's building up of an effective amphibious assault force capability. The Chinese Marines have developed a vehicle family based on this armored vehicle. The basic ZBD05 has been designed to be released from amphibious assault ships at more than 10 kilometers from the shore. Powered by two waterjets, these vehicles can achieve a top speed of 25 knots on water. A ZBD05 requires a crew of four-man and carries 7 to 10 fully equipped Chinese Marines.
The ZBD05 Self-Propelled Howitzer (SPH) is equipped with a 122mm cannon to provide artillery fire support to the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) Marines deployed onto hostile shores. The ZBD05 SPH is equipped with small caliber machine guns for self-defense purposes only. The first armored brigade equipped with this new howitzer was deployed to the Nanjing military region in May 2014.
