With all direction, detection and interception capability, FM-3000 missile can effective intercept various aircrafts and precision-guided munitions. According to Chinese Internet sources, the FM-3000 is also able to detect and destroy stealth aircraft. It has the capability to track eight targets at the same time.

The FM-3000 air defense missile system uses a TEL (Transporter Erector Launcher) based on a 6x6 heavy truck chassis. The FM-3000 TEL carries a total of 8 missile container-launcher tubes. The missile containers arrangement is two separate banks of four missiles. These tubes are raised to the vertical at the rear of the truck chassis for missile launch and are carried horizontally for travel. In firing position two hydraulic jacks are lowered on the ground each side of the vehicle to stabilize the truck during firing operations.

The FM-3000 missile has a maximum engagement range of 30 km for aerial targets, but this range is reduced to 20 km when it is used to intercept tactical missiles. It only takes four seconds to launch the missile when the enemy target is detected in airspace.
