An Assessment of China’s Missile Systems at the 12th Zhuhai AirshowNovember 20, 2018
The Epoch Times:
New missile systems have been featured at all Zhuhai shows and were a significant part of the 12th Zhuhai Airshow, held Nov. 6 to 11. Zhuhai’s missile displays have usually been dominated by the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) and the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC).
However, since 2014, the China North Industries Corporation (Norinco) has also displayed increasingly capable missile systems. Essentially, all three companies now offer the same range of surface-to-surface missiles (SSMs), while CASIC offers the most surface-to-air missiles (SAMs, or anti-aircraft missiles), cruise missiles, and anti-ship missiles.
Export products of China’s main missile companies often provide indications regarding future missile armaments for the People’s Liberation Army (PLA).
