Four strikes on four targets: In the PRC, upgraded HQ-9 air defense systems were tested

21

Recently, the PRC underwent "extreme tests" in unfamiliar terrain of the upgraded HQ-9 air defense systems, which are considered one of the most advanced in the world. The exercises were conducted by the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Air Force's Missile Brigade.

It is reported by the Chinese state television channel CCTV.



The report says that the brigade was deployed in an area unfamiliar to its military personnel and, with the help of an improved air defense system, delivered four strikes on four drones-targets.

We want to learn how to protect and maintain a new weapon system in harsh conditions, to disguise it, making every effort to complete the assigned tasks.

- said the commander of the PLA Air Force, Du Tao, whose words are reported by the South China Morning Post.

The exercise was reportedly conducted in secret and the type of missile used was not disclosed. Du Tao said that the new anti-aircraft missile system was tested in the dark, in cold weather, in sandy areas and in other extreme conditions. He also suggested that an upgraded HQ-9B system was used in the exercise. This version is confirmed by the fact that earlier the Chinese Ministry of Defense announced the tests of these missiles.

It is a variant of the HQ-9 medium and long-range active radar homing missile. Such weapons are capable of intercepting supersonic aircraft, some cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles and other aerial targets at ranges up to 250 kilometers and altitudes up to 30 thousand meters.

        Why go to the North, to the South (South-East and South-West) in all respects is more convenient and profitable, right down to the African continents.

        They gathered in the mountains closer to India))) There are no people who want to go to the north, even benefits and subsidies do not help.

          This is more like the truth. And there, on the border with India, conditions are almost harsher than Siberia and the Far East (ours).

      and with the help of an improved air defense complex, it struck four strikes on four target drones.
      Well, why not? Quite expected.

        The most interesting thing is the lower limit of the lesion in this complex.
        Did the Chinese manage to do it below 300 m? If so, how much? bully

      HQ 9 is not by any chance a Chinese clone of the C 300?

        Any air defense system can see them.
        It doesn't matter where it was made or when.

      Who exactly is this clone considered the best in its class? Give the opinions of military experts, links to analysis, and this is self-promotion, the Chinese, like us, their teachers in the creation of weapons simply loudly scream that their weapons are better in the world, but in practice they cannot confirm their cries!

        Such weapons can only be tested in real war. For the rest, yes, just like in other countries # unmatched in the world (I'm not just talking about us))))

          In a real war, throughout its history, the Chinese have always been raging. The Chinese have recently been the # 1 pirates in the technological field, but it is not a fact that what they have done themselves is better than the original, or at least close to it. They still order missiles for their S-400 systems.

            At least read the history more attentively, no one even asks to teach. Don't repeat after ichiots. You must have your own opinion.

            The Chinese began the war with the United States on their border, ended on the 38th parallel, defeating the airborne troops and driving back the US tank forces with their infantry. No other army in the world can boast of such successes anymore. In Vietnam, the Chinese cavalry was able to break into Lao Cai and take the equipment of the Lao Cai porcelain factory to the PRC.

      The Chinese bought the S-300 in 2004.
      And they bought the S-400 in 2018.
      And now they are checking the clone symbiosis of these systems at their polygons.
