Air Defense Missile Weapon System

The air defense missile weapon systems is composed of medium range interceptor (LY-80 series against aerial vehicle and anti- ship missile) and short range air defender (FB series and FN series) with an envelope of 10-20,000m altitude and 0.5-70km slant range, which constitutes a national or area defense system for area air defense, point air defense, fortification air defense and marching air defense. Featuring quick response, strong anti-jamming capability, highly automated fire control, good compatibility for joint combat mission, high maneuverability, easy operation, simple maintenance and battle proven performance, the air defense missile systems are the best choice for modern air defense needs.



FB-6A mobile air defense missile weapon system is a type of short range air defense weapon integrating various functions such as target detection, command & control, fire control and missile launch. The system mainly comprises Command Vehicle (CV), Firing Vehicle (FV) and FN-6 MANPAD missile. The mobility of the weapon system is achieved by adopting high mobility multi-purpose wheeled vehicle or military truck as mounting platform.

The system is used to intercept various fixed wing aircraft, helicopter, cruise missile and UAV effectively, and it is mainly applied to provide air defense for maneuver troops and vital assets.

FB-6A air defense system has been employed in China Armed Forces and many friendly countries as the primary mobile short range air defense weapon.
