Tactical Ground-to-ground Attack Weapon System
The tactical ground-to-ground attack weapon system comprises state-of-the-art M20 missile, WS-43 loitering attack weapon system and multiple launch rocket system (A series and WS series) with precision guided, simple guided and unguided types. The system features universal platform, diversified kinds of warheads, integration of reconnaissance, attack, control and assessment, and a full range of 20 -290 km for a variety of missions.
M20 is a new generation of ground-to-ground tactical missile system which is used for battlefield fire support and deep strike. It can provide immediate firepower support in combat as a kind of deterrent weapon to deal with regional wars.
As a single-stage solid missile, M20 flies with whole-course guidance in lower atmosphere at hypersonic speed. Various high-performance conventional warheads can be adopted to attack different targets. The system can conduct precision strike and has excellent penetration capability against air defense networks. Time for launch preparation and withdrawal is short, so that the system’s survivability has been greatly enhanced.
The maximum flight Mach is 6 and the maximum altitude is less than 50,000m. It can conduct a high maneuver above the target area and attack vertically with optimal damage.
M20 has been procured by many friendly countries as a leading ground-to-ground tactical missile system.
