The Type 625 represents the latest generation of Chinese-made anti-aircraft weapon system. It's an integrated Anti-Aircraft Gun Missile System, combining a formidable 25mm anti-aircraft Gatling gun with a set of surface-to-air missile launchers. This system is mounted on an eight-wheeled tactical truck, enabling rapid deployment and versatility in various combat scenarios.

Key features of the Type 625 include a six-barrel 25 mm Gatling-Type Gun System, capable of targeting aircraft, cruise missiles, helicopters, loitering munitions, and low-flying UAVs. Its effective range is up to 2.5 km with an altitude ceiling of 2 km. The cannon also serves a secondary role in ground combat, effective against light armored vehicles.

Moreover, the Type 625E variant enhances its aerial defense capabilities with 4 x FN-16 air-defense missiles. Primarily designed for battlefield air defense, these missiles specialize in intercepting low-altitude and ultra-low-altitude air targets. The FN-16 boasts a maximum range of 6 km and can perform an 18 g turn, indicating high maneuverability and precision.

The deployment of the Type 625 underlines China's ongoing efforts to modernize its military and enhance its air defense systems. This development is part of a broader trend of significant advancements in Chinese military technology, reflecting the nation's strategic focus on building a versatile and technologically advanced armed force.
