This wheeled self-propelled anti-aircraft gun was unveiled by China New Era Technology Co., Ltd. during the IDEX2007 weapons exhibition in the United Arab Emirates. It is constructed based on an experimental version of the WZ-551 Chassis, utilizing 60% of the WZ-551 Components, while enlarging the overall size of the vehicle. The hull structure consists of driver and commander seats, transmission, power section, and armament space. Its considerable height enables weapon mounting and loading, with the ability to adjust the height through pneumatic centralized control for rail and aircraft transportation. The vehicle is equipped with GPS navigation and features hull armor of 15mm and 8mm thickness, providing protection against 25mm and 7.62mm armor-piercing bullets. Additionally, all tires are bulletproof.

This vehicle’s primary armament comprises twin 30mm cannons with a muzzle velocity of 970m/s, an effective firing height of 3000m. It offers a depression angle of -2 degrees to 87 degrees and a 60% target shooting rate with HE shells. The turret includes a tracking radar, search radar, and electro-optical sight, enabling simultaneous target tracking and search operations with an 8-hour duration. Further details about the vehicle remain undisclosed.

+1 2S6 Tunguska’s guns on a wheeled platform, that would be an awesome replacement for the PGZ09 at 8.3 given that it will surely go up in BR after AHEAD was added
