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.



LY-80N is a kind of advanced medium range ship-to-air missile weapon system. The system can be mounted on various types of ships and used to intercept fighters and anti-ship missiles for accomplishing fleet air defense.

LY-80N system has been employed in PLA Navy as the primary medium range ship-to-air missile weapon system.
