   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. It seems that this anti-tank missile carrier is 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 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.
