According some Chinese internet sources, the HQ-17 is a local-made Russian Tor-M1 produced under license in China.
 

The HQ-17 uses a indigenous tracked chassis and is equipped with a new Identify Friend Foe (IFF) antenna on top the search radar, electronically scanned radars for better performance against enemy jamming, and can be connected to datalink with other Chinese artillery and command systems.

In 1996, China ordered 15 Tor-M1 missile systems from Russia which were delivered under contract in 1999. In 1998, another contract for 20 Tor-M1 systems was signed between Russia and China. Delivery of the systems took place in 2000.

As the Tor-M1, the HQ-17 can be used against targets as aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles, guided aerial bombs and remotely controlled aerial vehicles.

In June 2016, an air defense brigade of the Chinese army has conducted a first live firing exercise with the HQ-17 surface-to-air missile system.

The PGZ-07 is a Chinese-made 35mm self-propelled anti-aircraft gun designed and manufactured by the Chinese defense Company NORINCO. The vehicle was showed for the first time to the public at Zhuhai AirShow China in June 2016.

The PGZ-07 is armed with two cannons of 35mm, mounted to each side of the turret. One picture from Internet shows that the PGZ-07 can be equipped with four launchers of air defence missile which are mounted outwards and below the 35 mm cannon. Two each side of the turret.

The PGZ-07 is equipped with one tracking radar mounted at the front of the turret and surveillance radar at the rear of the turret roof. It appears that an electro-optical sight system is mounted above the tracking radar which could include day/night vision camera and laser rangefinder.
