Chinese defence giant Poly Technologies has secretly taken a stake in the capital of IMUT, a company set up to deliver locally-built armoured vehicles to the Egyptian army and which is run from Pretoria by American-Egyptian busnessman Michel F. Knight.

The anti-tank variant has a four-round launcher that raises from the rear compartment and appeared to be armed with the Poly Technologies GAM-102 anti-tank missile that uses an imaging infrared seeker to guide itself to its target. The IMUT video showed the missile being tested from a Dongfeng CSK141 light armoured vehicle but not an ST-100.

The precision attack missile variant was shown with two different types of weapon, one of which was seen labelled as the CM-501GA, another Poly Technologies product. The video included test footage that it said showed the missile hitting a target 41.3 km away with an accuracy of 0.12 m.
The other weapon resembled the CM-501XA loitering munition, which Poly Technologies says has an endurance of 30 minutes and a range of 70 km. Both the CM-501GA and CM-501XA can be carried in the same vertical launcher.
