The SPTRK AFT-10 was first demonstrated to the public in 2014. It has a mass of 20 tons and is mounted on the ZBD-04A BMP chassis. The complex is armed with 8 guided missiles, which are located in transport and launch containers that are in combat readiness. ATGM HJ-10 ("Red Arrow-10") acts as a means of destruction of enemy tanks. Experts believe that it is an analogue of the Israeli product Spike-NLOS. The rocket weighs 150 kg, of which 43 kg falls on the warhead. The HJ-10 works at a distance of 2 to 10 km.

In Russian troops, the Shturm-S SPTRK and the more modern Chrysanthemum-S complex play a similar role. The 9M123 ATGM and its modifications with a target destruction range from 0,4 to 6 km serve as the standard armament of the latter.
