    Pakistan Air Force to buy 4 Chinese Surface to Air Missile Systems.

    In an interview with the Global Times newspaper, Rao Qamar Suleman, air chief marshal of the Pakistan Air Force has confirmed the rumors that Pakistan Air Force will purchase up to four Chinese Surface-to-Air Missiles to meet its airdefence needs.

    Air Chief Marshal Rao Suleman has said that Pakistan air force is evaluating, different Chinese surface-to-air missiles for the purchase of 3 to 4 SAM systems. One of the systems under evaluation is "HQ-18"surface-to-air missile system.

    As per Jane's Defence weekly Hong Qi-18 (HQ-18) surface to air missile system is Chinese version based on the S-300 that is also known as SA-12A "Gladiator". HQ-18 system has a range of 100 km and it can be used against short-range ballistic and cruise missiles as well as against aircraft.

    Another surface to air missile that may be under consideration is China's indigenously developed HQ-12 / KS-1A SAM. These surface-to-air missiles are available with two engagement radars H-200 phased array radar and SJ-231 phased array radar.
    The SJ-231 radar system for the KS-1A/HQ-12 SAM system is based on the on the HT-233 PESA engagement radar which is associated with the advance Chinese surface-to-air missile system HQ-9 / FD-2000. SJ-231 is a self propelled radar.

    China's indigenously developed HQ-12 / KS-1A missile is a single stage missile that uses the solid propellant. It has very short span delta wing design that is very much like that of the US Hawk SAM. KS-1A Missiles uses the rail launchers. Depending upon the target’s speed maximum range of KS-1A varies from 38-50km. It can be used against targets flying as high as 27000m and as low as 300m.

    4 of these systems - KS-1A , HQ-18 (2 unknown systems) , MBDA-SPADA-2000 , and MANPADS ie ANZA-MKII/III

    Sounds like a great match !

    Systems are not to be confused with the amount of batteries !

    These SAMs are the best ones out there in the market -- when all 5 systems are inducted (2 of them have already been inducted) the only thing which may enter Pakistani air space from India would be doves and crows.

    Indian SAMs wont be a worry after the induction of these systems as India is after all going to be an invasion force not Pakistan.

    All are from S-300 family except KS-1A which is similar to Hawk SAM.

    LOL. You are really given to talking through your hat! There is no SAM system in the world that is impervious and impregnable.
    So leave that script for Lollywood (and ISPR documentaries).

    You know nothing about SAMs - all you do know is to troll in threads ! -- S-300 is the "best" SAM family out there and what i said will be echoed by your IAF brass. S-300 = near impeccable air defense.

    single Akash missile has an 88% Probability of kill. Two missiles can be fired, five seconds apart, to raise the Probability of Kill to 98.5%.

    But S-300s Probability to kill is estimated at 0.7 against a tactical ballistic missile.

    Even Malaysia showed interest in AKASH SAM systems..

    You cannot compare S-300 with Akash.

    S-300 is LR SAM and hence its the first line of defence. Akash is MR Sam and hence it s the second line of defence.

    For all those situations where both S-300 and Akash have been installed, Akash will come into the picture only if S-300 fails.
