The Type 89 APC is a Chinese armored personnel carrier (APC) featured in Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction.


The Type 89 is clearly one of the heaviest vehicles featured in the first act of the game. Few vehicles can compete with its TOW missile or its armor, making it a force to be reckoned with. It also carries four passengers, making it the best of all worlds.

It is fairly easy to find and can be seen patrolling around Pyongyang Airport and all the way to Nampo.

It will become available for purchase from the Merchant of Menace after completing 'Escort Service' for the Chinese. The Type 89 APC can be found in the Northern Province only during a Chinese contract.


Its TOW missile can rip apart most vehicles in a single hit, and its armor is impervious to small arms fire, making this vehicle almost unstoppable. Its only shortcoming is its ammo, carrying only eleven missiles.

Once the player makes it to the second act of the game, the APC will somewhat fall out of use. This is because after Hwangbo is verified, the Diamonds move in, bringing heavy armor along with them.

Real lifeEdit

The Type 89 APC is based on the real life Chinese Type 89 AFV, however it is rarely equipped with a TOW missile.
