Pakistan produces the HJ-8 under license from China, which helped the South Asian country build an independent production line to manufacture the anti-tank missile.

The HJ-8 is manufactured in Pakistan by Kahuta Research Laboratories, which has produced a total of 21,350 missiles between 1990 and 2012.

The HJ-8 alos named Red Arrow is an anti-tank guided missile weapon system which consists of a launch tube mounted on a launching device fitted with optics. Ther missile can be fire from a standard heavy-duty tripod or its can be mounted on light combat vehicles.

There are numerous improved versions following the original HJ-8, designated HJ-8A to HJ-8H, each incorporating improved features over the previous model. HJ-8E entered service in mid-1990. The HJ-8E anti-tank missile has a weight of 24.5 kg and it has a maximum range of 4,000 m.
