    China "produces" HQ-19 (S-400 Trimuf) which also is a test bed for Chinese anti satellite and ballistic missiles .

    Indeed a good news ain't it :haha:

    Good news. This still proves China relies on Russia for its SAM/theater BMD requirements.

    Must give props to the Russians for advanced studies and allocating resources to come out with robust SAM systems.

    Lets agree, the size able air force of the U.S. was never meant to be competed one-on-one.

    Reliance means buying your capabilities from another country.

    This system is a joint development by Russia and China which means that China has S-400 technology which also can be proven by their interceptor and Anti Satellite programs and so that they can produce these systems independently.

    The fact that they could not develop a system as good as the S-400 by themselves even after years of producing the S-300 (HQ-18) tells a lot.

    Takes time to develop such technologies , only thing that matters is that Chinese are well on their track to home made high end SAM tech.

    Prove your claims. No one can look into the future.

    What do you want me to prove ?

    1: China is developing its home made ABMDS Asia Times Online :: China News, China Business News, Taiwan and Hong Kong News and Business.
    2: China has proven capability of ASAT Missiles. Chinese Anti-Satellite Capabilities

    These are highest level of surface to air missile systems , it has been based on S-400 series but mind you going from a mare SAM to ASAT is a quantum leap. China already is independent in SAM (All 4 stages) and currently they are working on ABMDS which obviously is a much advanced level.

    I don't know why it has been hard for you to understand.

    ^^ i think what dilemma wants to say here is that even after having so experience in making long ramge sams china still cannot make one , and uses produces copies russian sams and use them for developing asat weapons.....

    The point is china copies a lot and seriously more than half of its capablities have been copied from russia (alot of ppl here cout them as developments but i dont) this is resom why it still cannot make a lr sam on its own......the hq18 !!!!!

    The 9M96 versions are the latest missiles to find their way onto existing and upcoming
    (like S-350E Vityaz) Russian SAMs. The 40N6 type have a max range of 400km, and
    Russia cannot export them or their technology because of so-called MTCR.

    But the 9M96 versions have a max range of 120km only.

    --

    But given the fact Russia is proliferating that tech to China, we cannot be so
    sure of anything. However, the same technology finding it's way to Pakistan
    is highly improbable. The versions of HQ-19 that Pakistan can possibly
    get in future are likely to be limited to 120km max range, and consisting solely
    of 9M96-derived Chinese copies.
