The Z-19 helicopter features a tandem two-seat cockpit and can be fitted with pod-mounted 23mm guns, rocket launchers, HJ-8 anti-tank missiles and TY-90 air-to-air missiles. Besides, the Z-19 helicopter features a pod with FLIR, TV and laser designator/range finder mounted under the aircraft's nose.
