What I Saw In China - The Zhonjing ZY5091XYBF Armored Personnel Carrier

In a recent trip to China, I chanced to see this beast up close.  This is the mighty Zhonjing ZY5091XYBF Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) made by a factory called Guangzhou Jieli Special Vehicle Equipment corporation from the big city of Guangzhou in Guangdong Province. The Zhonjing ZY5091XYBF is based on the Ford F550.

Designed primary for anti-riot duties the Zhonjing ZY5091XYBFcan be adapted to be used in the military. Engine has a mighty 362hp Ford 6.8 liter V10 petrol engine, mated to a 5-speed automatic.

The shape of the windows is normally used on Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles and don’t make much sense on an anti-riot vehicle.

The ZY5091XYBF can seat 14 including a driver and a co-driver. Top speed is a neat 150km/h.
