WZ-550 is a Chinese wheeled tank destroyer that is available in Wargame: Red Dragon. It bears a striking resemblance to the French VAB Mephisto, but is actually not imported from France.

HistoryEdit

The WZ-550 (actually WZ551 Type 92) was revealed in 1986 as an APC in 4x4, 6x6 and 8x8 configurations able to carry a wide range of weapon systems and/or nine passengers. The Hong Jian-9 ATGM system mounted on this variant was introduced in 1992, has a range of 100-5.500m and claims to have an armor penetration of 1.200mm. It uses laser-beam-riding for guidance and a solid fuel rocket motor.

OverviewEdit

The WZ-550 missile carrier is a Chinese 4x4 APC that was built in cooperation with GIAT, hence the similar look to the VAB. It's equipped with a Hong Jian-9 ATGM launcher which has a range of 2.975m, making it the ground-to-ground missile with the longest range featured in the Wargame series. With it's exceptional range, medium cost, high AP power, accuracy and speed it's the perfect vehicle for hit and run tactics or to simply keep enemy armored forces at bay. The only drawback is the limitation to a maximum of four vehicles per deck.
