Brigadier Naveed Rahman from Pakistan Armoured Corps disclosed to Kanwa reporter that during the Yugoslavian Civil War, the Bakter Shikan ATM, a Pakistan version of HJ8 made in China, registered very satisfactory battle record. In that war, HJ8/ Bakter Shikan ATM achieved a over 90% of hits rate. This is the first time the Western reporters were informed officially that the HJ8 used in the Yugoslavian Civil War had been imported from Pakistan. Anti-tank expert from DR. A.Q. Khan Research Laboratories told Kanwa reporter that the whole turret of the T84 tank of Serbs has once been blasted off by HJ8/Shikan ATM at a distance of 2000m. But according to Pakistani expert, the shortcomings of HJ8 Series exposed in real field operation include excessive weight, operational requirement of two or more people, the unwieldy supporting stand, and its vulnerability in detecting in battlefield disguise. For this reason, NORINCO has recently developed its HJ8L ATM whose weight has been greatly reduced and structure of supporting stand much simplified.
