China’s Ministry of National Defense (MND) released images on 28 November showing the test-firing in Beijing of what appears to be a new counter-unmanned aircraft system (C-UAS).

The shelter (ISO container)-based, truck-mounted C-UAS, which the MND refers to as a short-range air defense system, appears to be carried by at least two vehicles: one features detection and jamming equipment while another is fitted with a laser-based weapon.

The detection and jamming vehicle is equipped with a radar, an electronic jamming system, and a small electro-optical (EO) ball turret, all of which are mounted on the shelter’s roof.

A laser emitter, a tracker (EO and thermal), and a laser rangefinder are present on a stabilised elevatable and rotatable platform that is mounted on the roof of another shelter.
