Chinese Counter-Terrorism Unit using M4 Clone (Norinco CQ-A)

    These images were taken from a Chinese TV program about the Snow Leopard Commando Unit (SLCU, 雪豹突击队) training program. The Snow Leopards are a special police unit officially known as 3rd Group, 13th Detachment, People’s Armed Police Beijing General Corp. They are trained to respond to counter-terrorism, riots, bombs and hijacking.

    The Norinco CQ-A, also known as the Norinco CQ 5.56mm Type A, is Norinco’s M4A1 clone. It is produced for use internally as well as export.
