In this paper, by taking advantage of the richness of Fomenko’s theory of surgery on (bifurcations of) Liouville tori, we give a complete description of the topology and bifurcations of the invariant level sets of a heavy rigid body around a fixed point corresponding to the Goryachev-Chaplygin case on sokolov terms. In particular, for all values of the parameters of the system, the bifurcation diagrams of the momentum mapping are constructed, bifurcations of the common level sets of the first integrals are described, explicit periodic solutions were determined, the topology of the invariant manifolds and all generic bifurcations are illustrated numerically.
