The launcher has a traverse of 360º, elevation +15º and depression -5º. The AT-5 has a single HEAT warhead and will penetrate 550 mm of RHA. In addition to the one missile in the ready to launch position, a further four missiles are carried internally, two either side of the hull. Mounted either side of the turret is a bank of three 81 mm electrically operated grenade dischargers that fire to the front of the vehicle.

The layout of the Fahd-240/30 is similar to a light truck with the engine at the front, the crew cabin in the middle and the troop's compartment at the rear. The vehicle is fitted with an armoured hull which provides a protection for crew and the soldiers against firing of small arms 7.62 x 54 mm AP rounds and shell splinters. The troop compartment is at the rear of the hull with the infantry entering via a door in the rear, the upper part of which folds upwards and the lower part downwards to form a step. Each side of the rear door is equipped with vision block and firing ports. Each side of the hull is fitted with three vision block and circular firing port in the lower part. The driver and the commander have a single door that opens to the front with one bullet-proof window. Two large bullet-proof windows are mounted to the front of the crew cabin which can be covered by a shutter hinged at the top. On additional door is mounted to the right side of the hull.

The vehicle is motorized with a Mercedes-Benz Diesel engine OM 366 LA four-stroke turbocharged diesel developing 240 hp at 2,600 rpm coupled to a manual transmission. The Fahd-240/30 can run at a maximum road speed of 81 km/h with a maximum cruising range on road of 700 km. The Fahd can negotiate a maximum vertical slope of 70% and side slope of 30%. It can cross a trench of up to 0.8m width and vertical obstacle of 0.5m. The Fahd can ford a depth of 0.7m without preparation. Two armoured steel fuel tanks are placed in the bottom of left and right sides of the vehicle, with enough capacity and fully protection.
Accessories
The Fahd is fitted with a central tyre pressure regulation system allowing the driver to adjust the tyre pressure to suit the terrain being crossed. The driver can select front or rear tyres, or both together. The central tyre pressure system stops automatically after reaching the maximum or minimum tyre pressure selected by the driver. Low-pressure, run-flat tyres are fitted as standard and allow the vehicle to travel a distance of 50 km at 30 km/h in the event of a puncture. Standard equipment includes air-conditioning and NBC protection systems. The Fahd-240 is air transportable by military transport aircraft C-130.
