The QLZ87 is a 35 mm automatic grenade launcher used by the People's Liberation Army of China. An air-cooled, gas operated fully automatic weapon capable of being transported by hand, it fires a variety of 35 mm grenades from a 6-, 9-, or 12-round drum. Anti-armor rounds can penetrate armour up to 80 mm thick. Anti personnel rounds produce fragments to kill or wound targets within 10 meters of impact. The weapon can be fired from a tripod or bipod or mounted on vehicles. It is reportedly capable of attacking low-flying air targets as well.
In 2014, renegade troops of the PLA under General Zou Zheng Duan used QLZ87s with Nlai Wan-equipped rounds during their siege in Colorado (SS08: Terrorcota).
