China is likely to introduce the Norinco Red-Arrow 12 anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) at the Zhuhai Air Show (Nov.11 - 16, 2014).


The Red Arrow missile is reportedly being marketed as a competitor to the American-made Javelin missile.


According to Chinese blogs, the Red Arrow bears a strong resemblance to the Raytheon FGM-148 Javelin.


Though little is known about the latest version of the Red Arrow, old versions such as the Red Arrow-8 are said to be second generation tube-launched, optically tracked,wire-guided anti-tank missile system.

The Red Arrow-8 was first deployed by the People's Liberation Army in the late '80s.

According to reports, Pakistan produces this missile system under licence as the Baktar-Shikan at Khan Research Laboratories. 

Users of the missile system include Kenya, Albania, Bangaldesh, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Peru, UAE and Egypt among others.
