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 and the Defense Company NORINCO.

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.

The Lynx all-terrain vehicle used by the Chinese soldiers during the live fire exercise was armed with one Type 89 12.7mm heavy machine gun mounted on the top of tubular frame roll-bar used to protected the crew in case of vehicle overturns.
