The short-range missile is a combination of K-30 self-propelled gun vehicles with a 3 km firing range, and the portable surface-to-air missile Shingung, which can fly over 7 km. It can simultaneously fire off two types of missiles to target military aircraft flying at low altitudes and it has met all military requirements while testing throughout this year. DAPA will begin manufacturing the missiles next year to deliver them to troops starting in 2015.
"Once deployed to troops, it is expected to improve short-range air defense capabilities with an improved combat system and close integration with the command control system," DAPA said.
