China has successfully developed a next-generation air-to-air missile, a media report said describing it as a secret weapon. People’s Daily reported that China independently developed the air-to-air missile without assistance from foreign specialists or borrowed technology.
It has been designed by Fan Huitao, deputy director of the Air-to-Air Missile Research Institute under the Aviation Industry Corporation of China.
The missile, called the “Key Model”, has successfully passed a test in which all seven missiles hit their targets.
The media report called it a historic breakthrough in China’s air-to-air missile development and said that it met Chinese air force’s requirement for the model to be designed, produced, delivered and made combat-effective within one year. People’s Daily described the missile as a secret weapon for gaining air superiority.
The media report said that the missile is very hard to develop and only a few developed countries around the world possess such a capability.
