Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

China has become a succesfull producer of aircraft and missiles.
The  Chinese copied Russian missiles like the AA-2 Atol and several other proven missiles modernising fuel, range or warheads.
Examples are the Luoyang PL-8/9 (licensed Rafael Python 3 SRAAM)
SAST PL-11 (licensed ASPIDE/AIM7)
Today China is capable of producing its own rockets, specially in the next generation(5th) of missiles.
China is spending large sums on developing new missiles to equip their J 10 and FC 2 aircraft but also for the future J-XX project.

Letri SD-10/PL12

This missile was seen first at a foreign exhibition in 2008.
It uses active radar homing and mid course update BVR.
Its nicked the Chinese AMRAAM, problem for the west, the missile outranges the AIM 120.
The missile is standard package on the J-10 and it will eventually replace the R-77 missile used on  the SU27/30 fleet.

Louyang PL-ASR/PL10

Looks like the South African A-Darter missile, however its an close in WVR missile with lock-on after firing and thrust-vectoring indicating extreme agility.
Its expected to enter production this year.

Letri PL-13

The PL-13 is believed to be an extended range rocket/ramjet- powered missile under development it may look similar to the METEOR.
There is only a graphical sketch seen on the internet showing control surfaces and ramjet air intakes.
