Earlier images showing details of the launcher truck and the operator console:

Looks like the impact with the done's tail fin failed to trigger the warhead.

TL-4 brochure from the last Zhuhai show.

Effective Range: 0.5-6km
Diameter: 140mm
Length: 1090mm
Weight: 24kg
Launcher Dimensions (HxWxL): 178x174x120mm
Warhead Weight: 28.5kg
Guidance Modes: Inertial + TV, Infrared.
Communications Mode: Two-way digital wireless.

Light weight enough to be man-portable and can be mounted on vehicles or helicopters. Features Fire-and-Forget mode, or if the user prefers, he may remotely control it after launch.

A really late response, but 28.5kg is Canister+missile weight, not warhead weight. The complete missile itself weighs 24kg, so there's no way the warhead's 28.5kg.

reporting about the same missile, way back from 2018. It said the warhead weight is 4.3kg.

A Mengshi-III vehicle firing a ATGM. I cannot tell which ATGM this is.

Some on the Chinese forum speculate that this is the QN-502C ATGM that was first unveiled more than two years ago.

- Max range: 10km.
- Top-attack range of 8km with a 55-degree drop angle.
- Fire-and-forget.
- The operator can also take over control in mid-flight after the missile has been launched in fire-and-forget mode.
- Inertial/data guidance + TV/IR homing.

Could be, but still, QN-502C is surely the manufacturer's designation, while the PLA name will be HJ-number.

I wonder how much does it weigh for it to have that range.

Here's a picture I found and

I found it from. It definitely looks a little too similar to Javelin for my eyes.

It's pretty much official at this point. A new ATGM has entered service, although I don't know the official designation. It's man-portable and also launched from a dedicated Mengshi-III variant. Since Mengshi-IIIs form the backbone of the PLA's new High Mobility Brigades (HMB), I believe this new ATGM is meant to further augment the anti-armor capabilities of these HMBs.
