    My guess would be UAE since their army uses HJ-8, or perhaps those are factory new launcher ordered by some Gulf state.

    HJ-8 is used by Pakistan, this is wire guided anti tank missile. It does not have tandem warhead to take out ERA.

    HJ-8 tested on Chinese tank



    Good addition to Rabels.

    Not sure about Pakistani variant, but later Chinese models were made to defeat ERA.

    meh... so what? Rebels have been using Konkurs for over a year and it is a much better missile.

    Understatement, understatement of the millenium.

    Pakistan makes licensed version of HJ-8s known as Baktar Shikan. Pakistan also exports Baktar Shikan to other countries and can destroy tank targets at a distance of 3 km. These were possibly supplied to Bosnian government forces against Serbian tanks during the mid-1990s, the weapon proved effective enough to penetrate the frontal armor of M-84 tanks.

    It can possibly become new anti-tank Missile for Taliban forces (if possible ISI funded LeT).

    yeah, that was first thing that come to my mind, this is the same anti tank missile which PA got from China through TOT.

    I suppose the guy who aimed the wire guided missile deserves some credit. Did you see how fast that missile flies? Aiming a missile like that at a target 3 km away with dust and smoke around can't be easy. However there is no real proof that the missile that hit the tank was the same one that was fired I guess LOL

    Of course the missile hit the target. Didn't you hear "allahu akbar!"?

    Seriously the continuity of the video needs forensic analysis.
