China North Industries Corporation (Norinco) has released promo video ahead of the AirShow China 2018 exhibition, which is set to take place in that southern Chinese city from 6–11 November.

Released footage is showing the company’s latest capabilities included new man-portable anti-tank guided missile system.

The new Norinco’s man-portable anti-tank guided missile system is modelled to resemble that of the Russian-made Kornet tank-killer missiles. New Chinese missile, just as Kornet, has semi-automatic command-to-line-of-sight laser beamriding guidance, flying along the line of sight to engage the target head on in a direct attack profile.

Chinese missile intended for use against tanks, including those fitted with explosive reactive armour (ERA), fortifications, entrenched troops as well as small-scale targets.

The system breaks down into a number of modules: a folding tripod mount, a launch tube which encased missiles are inserted into the rear of, a mandatory daysight tracker unit, and a traversing unit which mounts into the tripod and carries the launch tube and sight, and also includes the weapon’s trigger and the bridging clamp which mates with the missile’s umbilical data connector.

According to video, a new anti-tank system equipped with infrared cameras for night time use.

The system enables one person to detect a target, aim, fire a missile, track and defeat the target.

Owing to its modular design, the launcher can be placed on a wide range of wheeled and tracked vehicles using a bracket.
