The NORINCO Lynx design seems to be very similar to the Canadian all-terrain vehicle Argo. The Lynx all-terrain vehicle was developed in close cooperation with the Chinese army.
 

The new Chinese 8x8 all-terrain vehicle Lynx can be used for different roles, including troop, cargo, equipment and weapon transport, reconnaissance, resupply, or casualty evacuation. During airborne and special forces operations this vehicle can be landed by helicopters and briefly redeploy from landing zones to firing positions.

The cargo area at the rear of the vehicle can be used to carry troops, personal equipment or ammunition. Payload capacity is about 600-900 kg. Seating is provided for the driver and 5 passengers. This all-terrain vehicle can also tow light artillery cannon.

For its self-protection, the Lynx can be fitted with ring mount or swivel station armed with one machine gun, or automatic grenade launcher.

The front of the vehicle is equipped with a large windshield and anti-roll bar is fitted in the middle and the rear parts of the vehicle to protect the crew in case of a rollover.

The Lynx is powered by a small turbocharged diesel engine, developing around 30 hp. The vehicle can run at a maximum speed of 45 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 250 km. This type of vehicle can travel over all kinds of cross-country terrain, including forests, swamps and sand. Tracks can be fitted for travelling over ice and snow. A self-recovery winch is mounted at the front of the vehicle
.
The Lynx is fully amphibious with a payload capacity up to 300 kg propelled in the water by its wheels.
