Chinese "Sky Dragon" - anti-aircraft missile system from Norinco

Most recently, an article has been posted on the TOPWAR website.
"China introduced the developed anti-aircraft missile system and the main battle tank"

In the article about the Sky Dragon air defense complex there is only a brief mention.
The first time Sky Dragon was mentioned (poster) in Kuala Lumpur at the DSA-2012 arms exhibition at PWTC.

Secondary (as mentioned in the article mentioned) on Eurostory 2012

On the basis of available publications in the press I will try to provide a little more information.

This promising medium-range ground-to-air complex is the latest development by Norinco in the field of air defense
The maximum range of shooting 50 km, interception height from 30 m to 20 km ..
The main tasks of the Sky Dragon are object and field (military) defense against aerial targets.
It can effectively intercept medium, low and ultra-low air targets, that is, aircraft, helicopters and UAVs, as well as detect and destroy cruise missiles.

Each battery consists of one PBX with IBIS150 3D targeting radar, PBX with center fire control, from 3 to 6 PU on the car chassis. At each PBX - 4 not serviced container with missiles.
In this configuration, Sky Dragon is able to accompany up to 144 targets, hit up to 12 different targets - when shooting 12 with individual-guided missiles for a few seconds (salvo firing).
system response time (normal): ≤ 20 s (output of the CU-start)
system response time (emergency): ≤ 16 seconds (issuance of the CU-start)

Single-stage solid-fuel rocket. No open data
Wang Cheng, NORINCO Assistant Director General for Western Asia:
"The probability of hitting one shot is the probability of hitting 80 5, for the purposes of the type fighter 4 ++ generations"

ATS-platform used chassis from MLRS SR5

IBIS150 3D radar known data: search, detection and DD in the range of: ≥ 130 km (over 130 km)

Note: The photo shows a radar IBIS80 3D, most likely 150 on its base

Data for IBIS80 3D:

Using a high-bandwidth radio channel, launchers can be located up to 5 km from a vehicle with a fire control center.
Sky Dragon is completely autonomous and very mobile:
-the deployment time at the new place 15 minutes after stopping the car.
- coagulation time: 6 min
- Continuous working time: ≥ 12 hours
-working temperature: from -20 ° C to + 55 ° C

Each battery can operate autonomously, using situational information from the IBIS150 radar, as well as integrated into the "intelligent" network, receiving information, target designation and launch commands from an external central command post.

A vehicle equipped with a fire control center can control two other Sky Dragon batteries — a battalion mode of operation.

Some similarities between 4x container PU Sky Dragon (China) and Babur LACM's container PU (Pakistan) on the new multiply charged mobile launcher Missile Launch Vehicle (MLV):

Suggests blasphemous thought:
"And if the Chinese did not attach themselves to the development of Babur LACM's CD?" , contrary to the MTCR.

It is unlikely that the Pakistani guys are so fierce that they were able to "restore and study two partially damaged American Tomahawk cruise missiles RGM / UGM-109, DETECTED in Southern Pakistan ", create and KR, and PU, and the carrier for PU ...

Although maybe I'm wrong

China North Industries Corporation (NORINC O) is a manufacturing and investment group of enterprises integrated with R&D (manufacturing, marketing and services). NORINC O is mainly engaged in defense products, oil and mineral resources, international engineering contracts, optoelectronic products, explosives and civilian chemical products, sports weapons and equipment.
Provides transportation and logistics services.
NORINCO ranks first among the first 500 of the largest Chinese state-owned enterprises in terms of assets and revenues.

He is also engaged in environmental protection and charity, and participates in disaster management and educational programs:

      and military equipment they will bring to mind

      As for example, they brought to mind their ICBMs with the help of our two professors of the Voenmekh.

    The PLA is quickly eliminating the backlog in the MLRS.
    It can be seen how the Chinese are assimilating various technologies --- for example, the scheme of the American MLRS has been adopted.
    What can they say they are preparing for war thoroughly.

    Yes, the world is becoming multipolar, whether anyone likes it or not, and this should be taken into account.

    Soon, I feel, looking at the chinas, we will not grin, but grit our teeth. Does everyone remember how they snickered at Korean cars from the beginning? And what is their attitude to them now?

      for 5 years no one smirks at the Chinese ....
      and to make fun of Koreans for 20 years is pointless.
      Hyundai is not cars only. It is enough to see what, how much and how much Hyundai produced, produces ....

    The Chinese not only copy, but also attract specialists from around the world to develop their own weapons. And they do not spare the grandmothers. True, some of the specialists disappear there. In addition, they use to the fullest that in the pursuit of cheap labor, many of the world's leading companies produce their products in China. Add to this the strictest discipline combined with skillful investment promotion. They even have the best roads in the world. And this has been done over the past ten years. In terms of military equipment and weapons, the picture is even better. Moreover, after the collapse of the USSR they sold everything they could there. If only they paid with real money. So what is now to be surprised. It’s too late, Vasya, to drink Borjomi if the kidneys fail

    Here, when Russia once sold its undeserving aircraft carrier Varyag to Macau, allegedly under a floating casino, and now this aircraft carrier is already the flagship of the Chinese fleet and an aircraft carrier strike group is being formed around it, which is going to push the US Pacific fleet away from China. And it will force it out.

    And the radar in the picture is very reminiscent of the 3x coordinate giraffe from Saab, Sweden.
