This gun seems to be a closely guarded secret as i'm struggling to dig up much information on it


As far as I can tell it's indiginously developed, but incorporates some ideas from the US version such as the lower cannon and upper gun

Man that does look like a rip-off of the OICW concept, except the Grenade clip is the forward clip and the rifle round is the back clip.

Thats scope though
Its friggin huge It looks like it weighs 15 pounds

Good find Lucretius

Here is the US OICW concept for comparison

Is that a new version Lucretius? The last model I saw of the XM-29 had a over under barrel setup. That picture appears to have side by side barrels.

It's the first firing prototype

The version you describe is the final production variant

It's not from Taiwan.

The letters are simplified Chinese meaning its from the mainland.

The Rifle part on the chinese gun is on top, the launcher is on the bottom.

What kind of ammo will it use? well probably dumb question since there is no info available...

They even stole Hk's 4 port flash hider! that scope does look big, probably has NV, Reddot and some other goodies build in...i'll try to find something a about this gun...

I was thinking IR vision in the scope you can buy much smaller NV off the self but Thermal has been much harder to shrink down in size and still is quite expensive.

Im sure that it has a Red dot like you mentioned and rangefinder but IR is the only thing I can think of to account for that size. The US starlight scopes in Vietnam were smaller or about that size.

Yeah, Then it's probably thermal vision as you suggested...talk about bulky!

And some more modern Chinese kit









And the new chinese non-lethal laser rifle

WOW look at that laser gun.... Does it use the same tech off the JD-3 Dazzler system of the Type 98+ Tanks? Can you give any other specs on this new non-deadly laser gun?

Thanks

The non-lethal laser gun is the first of its kind. It is designed for anti-terrorism squads so terrorists can be captured without harm.

The gun fires a laser that temporarily blinds the enemy (from one report I read the blinding effect lasts for 2-7 days). I'm sure the laser can be upgraded to perform permanent laser blindings. The gun is very secretive and there are almost no articles or threads on it at all.

Apparently this chart shows the development of the American OICW over the years.

Somehow it resembles the HK M29

Non-lethal laser, ring a bell exercise use only? I just think it might be addon to barrel, still it looks more of whole gun build so, no real ammo clip on it, more like some battery. But if its somehow disabling laser, could someone explain about it a bit more. How long range such have and how would it work in rain etc scenarios, just keeping open minded.

I believe it's a short range weapon designed for indoor enviroments and can be used for hostage rescue or similar police actions.

It would be good weapon for capturing suspects relatively unharmed

And yes in response to an earlier post... it is the same "dazzler" technology found on the type-98 Tank... scaled down to cause only temporary blindness.

could be a toy for show. trust me when they're posing for pictures they add tons of weird thing to their gun to make it appear more high-techy. or they simply change it for a more cool looking BBguns.

Yes, youtakeit, you are correct. I know you mean the stuffs of USA.
Looks above, China ones are absolutely more practical than USA's.
I think most of the USA military engineers had Hollywood working experiences--see the F-117, F-22, JSF, whatever undercovered "hi-tech", looks good, to make people happy.
