Pakistan army has installed LY-80 Air defense system today. According to ISPR Pakistan has installed Lower medium Altitude air defense system LY80 to strengthen its defense capabilities. General Qamar Javed Bajwa Chief of Army Staff said now our defense is more strong and this Chinese Air Defense System LY-80 can hit target on medium range with high accuracy. LY-80 Air defense system is made in China and consider one of the world top class air defense system that can target moving objects in the air like Missiles and Jet fighters including armed drones as well.
Last Year Pakistan has also installed HQ-9 Anti Missile defense system that is highly capable of destroying ballistic missiles in the air.
he Hongqi-9 (HQ-9) is a long-range, high-altitude, surface-to-air missile system developed and manufactured by China, designed to track and destroy aircraft, cruise missiles, air-to-surface missiles, and tactical ballistic missiles. It incorporates technology from the Russian S-300P (NATO: SA-10 Grumble), the U.S. Patriot missile, and preexisting Chinese systems. At present, China is outfitting its Type 052C destroyers with a naval variant of the HQ-9.
China’s decision to develop and manufacture its own anti-missile system is a manifestation of its twenty-first century goal of achieving what political scientists refer to as “great power status”—the buildup of political, economic, and military strength. A key ingredient of “great power status” is military modernization, in China’s case the renovation of certain outdated aspects of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). In particular, China has concentrated its recent efforts on boosting its offensive and defensive missile capabilities in order to compete with the U.S. and other Western powers.
