   The AFT-10 anti-tank missile carrier was first publicly revealed in 2014. At that time it was already in service with Chinese armed forces. This anti-tank missile carrier is being produced in large numbers.

   This ATGW carrier is armed with HJ-10 missiles. The HJ-10 is essentially a scaled-down version of the Chinese CM-501G land attack missile. This missile is a Chinese clone of the Israeli Spike NLOS. It uses the same technology. The AFT-10 is only a third weight of the CM-501G. The range was reduced to 10 km. Minimum range of fire is 3 km.

   The missile has an optical/imaging guidance system. It is a non-line of sight missile. It can lock on the target within the line of sight. Alternatively the operator locks on the target after the launch, using a real time image from the missile. Commands to the missile are transmitted via a two-way optical-fiber cable. The launcher vehicle has two consoles for the operators.

   It can engage enemy tanks, armored vehicle, buildings and field fortifications. It can also engage low-flying helicopters.

   Missile launcher is mounted on the chassis of a ZBD-08 infantry fighting vehicle. A single launcher has 8 ready to fire missiles. Missiles are launched from containers.

   Vehicle is operated by a crew of 3, including commander, driver and operator.

   Most likely that this anti-tank missile carrier is powered by a BF8M1015CP diesel, developing 590 hp. Engine is mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox. The AFT-10 is fully amphibious. On water it is propelled by its tracks.
