China copied the Russian Buk-M3 air defense system and showed a copy of the Pantsir-S air defense missile system

Photos of the Chinese copy appeared SAM "Buk-M3" and SAM "Pantsir-S".

Within the framework of the International Aviation and Space Salon Airshow China 2021, China intends to present copies of Russian weapons. As evidenced by the photographs published on the eve of the opening of the air show, two Russian anti-aircraft missile systems were actually copied in the PRC - the Pantsir-S air defense missile system and the Buk-M3 air defense system.

In the photo presented, you can see both air defense systems. If the idea of ​​creating its own Pantsir-S air defense missile system in China was decided to be worked out, then the anti-aircraft missile system is almost an exact copy of the Russian Buk-M3 air defense system, at least visually.

Judging by the data that could be found in the Chinese segment of the Network, a copy of the Russian Pantsir-S air defense missile system is the Chinese FB-10A complex, which, after modernization, became even more similar to the domestic development, including in combat terms, since the maximum range of destruction goals he now reaches 18 kilometers. As for the copy of the Buk-M3 air defense system, at the moment there is no information about this type of weapon. This does not exclude the possibility that we are talking about a new product.

Earlier, China has already been seen copying Russian military developments. Even despite the fact that such weapons have never been supplied to the PRC before, specialists from the Celestial Empire managed to achieve combat parameters almost identical to Russian developments.


Or maybe it's time to stop believing in everything they write? The picture shows the HQ-16 air defense system, the preliminary design of which was developed by Russian designers by order of China based on the Buk-M1-2 and Buk-M2E air defense systems. It has nothing to do with Buk-M3. And the FK-1000 Sky Dragon 12 air defense system with the Pantsir-S1 air defense missile system unites only the use of bicaliber missiles and the general architecture scheme. This is not a copy of "Pantsir-C1", but its own development based on.

Maybe it's time to stop deliveries of the latest Russian systems to China? After all, not far off and conflicts with them over the Siberian territories ...

Mathematics cannot be "copied". They only sell it. Inflatable tanks are also ... similar in appearance.

The biorobots again took up their favorite business. By copying ...
