Description
Chinese defense industry has now designed and developed a new one-man, fire-and-forget multi-purpose missile system under the name of Red Arrow 12 or HJ-12. The Red Arrow 12 is a state-of-the-art one man portable , fire-and-forget, multipurpose missile designed and developed by the Chinese Defense Company NORINCO. This new missile system was presented for the first time to the public at the China International Aviation & Aerospace Exhibition 2014 (AirShow China), which was held in Zhuhai (China) from the 11 to 16 November 2014. China North Industries Corporation used multiple advance technologies that have been adapted by Western countries to produce the missile. The weapon capability matches that of new missiles produced by the United States and Russia and it could help the Chinese military catch up with the two countries in terms of its anti-tank capabilities, while allowing China to obtain a larger market share of the international arms market. The HJ-12 is much more advanced than the anti-tank missiles currently used by the PLA ground force.
