The Fourth Field Army (Chinese: 中国人民解放军第四野战军) was a military formation of the People's Liberation Army. It was formed during the Chinese Civil War by existing members of Eighth Route Army and New Fourth Army stationed in Manchuria along with others, where they fought against the Republic of China government. The army was commanded by Lin Biao, and it was involved in many crucial battles including the Liaoshen Campaign.

In 1955 it was reorganised into the Guangzhou Military Region.
