In addition to various missile systems designed for the Royal Thai Army and Navy, Poly Technologies is also trying to sell its CS/VP3 Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected armored personnel carrier to the kingdom.

     
     

Representatives from Poly Technologies told Duowei News that the armored personnel carrier is critical to the Royal Thai Army's anti-terrorist operations in the Patani region in southern Thailand. The CS/VP3 had already won contracts from two African nations since its production in 2012. China has also agreed to jointly develop a DTI-1 Multiple Launch Rocket System for the Royal Thai Army based on its own WS-1.

Despite the fact that Turkey may be blocked from purchasing a FD-2000 by the United States, Duowei News stated that the confidence of developing nations towards the Chinese weapon system had been boosted. Thailand has been one of the major users of Chinese weaponries through the purchase of four Type 053HT guided-missile frigates in 1988. In the 21st century, Thailand still has the potential to become China's biggest overseas market after Pakistan.

Few weeks ago, Thai army has unveiled the delivery of the first Chinese-made 122mm MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System) PR50. The PR50 is a new Chinese-made 122mm MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System) which was unveiled at the 6th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition.
