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.

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

@farhan_9909 You can more information?
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

Talking to newsmen, he said work was in progress on increasing range of Baktar Shikan anti-tank-guided missile system with a laser aiming device, with a capability of day and night firing and high-hit probability.
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

But authoritative sources told Kyodo News the version of anti-tank missile tested on Sunday is equipped with an automatic guidance system, without wires, and has a greater range.

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..



Air Defense Anti-Tank System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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




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 .

QLZ-87B semi-automatic grenade launcher
Effective range: up to 600m (point targets), 1000 m (area targets)
It seems chinese out gunned us!

@methos @militarysta @Dejawolf


how authentic is this? can bk-29 achieve this?

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.
