Chinese copy of the air defense system "Tor"

A few days ago, Chinese television in a report from the anti-aircraft missile unit of the military anti-aircraft defense of the 41 Army PLA for the first time officially showed a Chinese copy of the Tor system, known as HQ-17.

From the immediately striking differences of the Chinese combat vehicle, a completely different target detection radar can be noted, very similar to the HQ-7B of the latest modification of the HQ-1B SAM system, the chassis is easiest to distinguish by rectangular headlights (they are round at Tor-MXNUMX).

Screenshots from the site of the Chinese news agency Xinhua.

For comparison, the combat vehicle 9А331-1 LAW "Tor-M1" PLA, all from Russia to China in 1997-2001. 35 was delivered by Tor-M1

      Perhaps for the sake of reorienting our economy to the East, it’s necessary with the Chinese how to share military technology ...
      Here is the north of Korea, and indeed all of Korea previously gravitated toward Russia. Yes, and in general it is difficult to expect deception from Koreans (I worked with them a lot and tightly before).

    Took a course and do not turn off. If you think about it, how much money does the state invest in the development of ALL industries. They copy military equipment, and aircraft, and military aircraft, and civilian cars ... The Chinese are well done. This is what it means to have an excess resource. In the case of the Chinese, a human resource. There is no own oil, but the dough is unmeasured.

    Iron is easy to copy, but the electronic stuffing, and most importantly the control algorithm, I hope they did not succeed. Once they tried to copy the S-300, but their missiles did not fly beyond 75 km.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed in principle to sell the S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems to China, the Kommersant newspaper writes, citing a source close to the Kremlin. At the same time, Alexander Fomin, director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, confirmed that negotiations are currently underway for the supply of complexes to China. The decision to sell the complexes was made at the beginning of the 2014 year.

    Negotiations with China concern the number of complexes and their cost. At the same time, even if a firm contract is signed in the near future, Beijing will be able to receive new C-400 no earlier than 2016 of the year. An earlier supply of arms to China is not possible, since the delivery of most of the C-400 ordered by the Russian Ministry of Defense as part of the current state arms program should first take place, reports.

    The parties are currently discussing the possibility of supplying China with two to four S-400 divisions, each of which includes eight launchers.

    Thanks to the acquisition of C-400 complexes, China will be able to control airspace not only over its territory, but also over Taiwan and the Japanese
    I wonder if someone else sells the most modern technology to our yellow-faced brothers, or is this just our prerogative? We'll have to wait for new Chinese "masterpieces" for "restoration" and talented copying.

    In general, the Chinese are a fairly hardworking and organized nation. They are able to work 12 hours a day, perfectly perform the assigned work, repeat other brands and technical solutions, but nothing new, advanced, giving the right to say that they are at the peak of scientific and technological progress is impossible. Once again I take off my hat to their perseverance, patience, hard work, but in addition to all this, ingenuity of the mind, non-standard thinking, the ability to make a critical decision and not be afraid to be responsible for it, to be simply a creative person are required. Are there really no creative people in China? There is. But their potential, limited by mentality and all that is called in one word "East", does not give them the opportunity to do what other nations are capable of. Each nation has its own characteristics and potential. Talking about how bad everyone is, except for the Russians, is a path leading to a dead end, since whatever the capabilities of the nation, they cannot be neglected.

      Besides hard work, China has significant advantages in the fight against corruption. We also catch corrupt officials sometimes, but no one thinks about what gigantic damage they managed to inflict for their "work activities" and who covered them all this time and pulled them into power. ???
      But it’s time to grow wiser, this 5th column is the most dangerous and does more damage than any WMD.

    China is a master of fakes.
    In the 80s, the son bought a two-cell "Panasonic", he worked for a month and when analyzing the purchase-marriage found that it was a Chinese self-propelled gun called "Panasonix".

      I doubt that this is their radar. Very similar to the truncated version of the French GM radar. The Chinese bought this technology from Thales 5 years ago. If there is a water cooling system AFAR, then this is definitely French technology.
