Sky Wolf Commandos of the Chinese Army’s Special Operations Forces from the Western Theater Command, have been equipped with the QTS-11 system in their training, Global Times reported quoting Weihutang, a column affiliated with China Central Television (CCTV).
The QTS-11 system includes firearms and a digitalized integrated individual soldier combat system besides detection and communications, Global Times quoted Song Zhongping, a Chinese military expert as saying.
The system includes an assault rifle and 20-millimeter grenade launcher, a thermal imager and optoelectronic and positioning systems and weighs up to 7 kilograms.
The QTS-11 system was also incorporated in a surveillance and reconnaissance brigade of the Central Theater Command.
Special operations forces are the first to have a taste of the QTS-11 system before the system would be widely equipped into other forces, Song said.
The QTS-11 system can be said as the strongest individual firepower in the world, the CCTV report said. Military fans hail the system as a "strategic rifle."
