    We need to re-engineer similar weapon.No local production as of now, i think.

    Useful in Squad and Platoon level for any no. of things. Good firepower for Ghatak as well.

    No Sensors IR, etc. reqd.

    Truly "fire and forget" type.

    Now here is the official picture of Pakistan new ATGM(MANPAD) developed after the first news of new atgm development we got in 2006.

    Picture is from the last week exercise and size is almost similar to javelin atgm

    Pakistan also had a baktar shiken and yet another baktar shiken but upgraded
    we also have TOW ATGM from america

    but the latest by nescom is most probably the one with laser guidense

    well in 2006.the ndc reported that they are working on a new atgm with laser guidance and greater range(older baktar shikan was wire guided)

    And than in dec 2010..Pak army tested a unknown ATGM with improvement such as Greater range and automatic guidance(laser guided?)

    No other information regarding this is available.

    let me post both the sources

    this one is from 2006

    KARACHI: POF, French firm sign deal for co-production: Artillery ammunition - DAWN.COM

    after this in 2010 december they tested a atgm with the below capabilities

    *Greater range
    *Improved/automatic guidance

    Are we mixing in AD weapons with anti-tank, and is there a system capable of both roles? I don't know of one offhand.

    ADATS system... Air Defence And Anti-Tank System...a weapon system developed in Cold War period
    but only in Canada and Thailand services..

    --------------
    BTW, the so called QLZ87B 35mm grenade launcher is officially called as QLB-06

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    there is another improved new varient with longer barrel and automatic fire control system...but we think this should be something new coz this model uses the high pressure 35mm grenade(different from the ammo used by QLZ87 and QLB06) with a rang of 2000-3000M...this system was also called as " 35mm grenade sniper system"

    Perhaps in some aspect, But certainly over-weighted ..

    An HMG does outgun an LMG, But HMG cannot be used everywhere but LMG does .

    Depends on used steel (it's hardness) and what round actually it was. There were several high performance 125mm HEAT rounds developed in Soviet Union and Russia, 3BK29, 3BK29M and one more with a triple HEAT warhead.
