QW-2 Man-Portable Air Defence System of Bangladesh

The QianWei-2 (QW-2) is China’s third indigenous shoulder-launched air-defence missile. First revealed in 1998, the missile is based on the rocket motor of the QW-1, but its launcher and the missile bare strong resemblance to the Russian 9K310 Igla-1 (NATO codename: SA-16 Gimlet).
QW-2 is considered by many Chinese media sources as the Chinese equivalent of FIM-92E and it is a development of the QW-1 Vanguard series.
The QW-2 is gradually replacing the HN-5A MANPADS and is manufactured under license in Bangladesh. The QW-2 manufacturing plant has the capacity to produce 2,000 missiles annually. It is in service with the Bangladesh Army and Navy.
