PL02 is a vehicle mounted integrated battlefield . Comprising a ground surveillance radar with fire detection, location and fire direction capabilities. The radar is mounted on a telescopic mast, along with EO payload.
Target location data can be translated automatically between radar and EO, to be fed to the network or precision fires units.
At Airshow 2014 the PL02 was displayed with what looks like four copied ‘ ’ type micro UAVs, these could be used for target acquisition or for precision strike, if the Chinese version is capable of such function, as the US developed mini-drones.
The developed by Aerovironment under a DARPA funded research and development program is a brand new weapon system, which has been inservice for about one year.
Red Arrow 12
A man portable guided missile system, the Red Arrow 12 is similar to the Israeli , or the US .
The missile uses an IR or TV imaging seekers for all weather day/night operation. The missile uses ‘soft launch’ techniques to enable safe firing from enclosure.
Once aimed at the target, the ‘fire and forget’ system controls the missile through an autonomous flight to hit the target, enabling the operator to seek shelter.
The missile can neutralise tanks, bunkers, small boats and helicopters.
The mobile PA01 ‘intelligent tactical precision strike platform comprises 12 CM-501/PA01 precision attack ‘fire and forget’ missiles capable of striking point targets system at ranges of 40km.
An extended version of the missile is likely to has ‘lock on after launch’ capability, enabling the missile to strike at targets at a range of 70 km.
