The NORINCO PGZ-07 Self-Propelled Anti-Aircraft Artillery (SPAAA) vehicle is in service with the modern Chinese Army. It provides a short-to-medium-ranged air deterrent (by way of cannon and missile fire) for ground forces and key positions such as airfields, bridges and the like. Beyond its value as an anti-aircraft solution, the lethality of the autocannons extends to ground targets as well.

The system employs a radar and rangefinder to accurize searching, tracking, targeting, and engagement of inbound aerial threats including both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. The weapons portion of the vehicle is a 2 x 35mm autocannon arrangement in which each gun is set to either side of the fully-traversing/elevating turret fitted over the vehicle hull. To this is added 4 x Short-ranged missile launchers for a more modern approach to airspace denial. 8 x Smoke grenade dischargers are installed at either lower turret side for self-screening.

The guns are cleared to fire various in-service Chinese ammunition types including general High-Explosive Incendiary (HEI) as well as armor-piercing and tracer rounds. The turret houses two of the crewmembers with complete coverage from the elements.

The vehicle component is a typical, low-profile armored fighting design with a track-and-wheel design allowing for cross-country travel and general mobility. The hull contains the driver's position as well as the powerpack and is of all-welded steel construction. The front glacis plate is noticeable shallow for excellent ballistics protection while the sides, rear, and top of the hull are left flat. The turret sits over the middle-rear of the hull with excellent views over the vehicle. The rear of the hull has a useful entry/exit hatch.

The running gear of the PGZ-07 allows for a maximum road speed of 55 kmh to be reached while operational ranges reach out to 450 kilometers.
