Chinese army reveals new self-propelled gun missile air defense system

Posted On Monday, 31 May 2021 11:31


China recently revealed a new type of 8x8 self-propelled air defense system combining a 35mm anti-aircraft gun and two surface-to-air missiles, Liu Xuanzun reports in Global Times. One may qualify this solution as a Chinese equivalent to the Russian Pantsir system.

Independently developed by China South Industries Group Corporation, the self-propelled anti-aircraft gun is equipped with advanced radar and fire control systems, and can act as a stand-alone combat unit, China Central Television (CCTV) reported last week. Without introducing the weapon's designation, the CCTV report said that this air defense system can accompany mechanized troops to provide air defense cover, making it a great choice for a mid-size combined arms brigade in field air defense tasks as well as countering drones, according to CCTV.


The weapon system uses a 35mm single-barrel gun with the same combat capability as its two-barreled predecessors because it uses a completely new rotary autoloader that significantly increases its fire rate, the report said.

A set of two air defense missiles is mounted on the right side of the turret, next to the gun. The type has not been mentioned in CCTV report.
