CPMIEC at the IDEF'11
The only "surprise" from this show is that the Chinese Precision Machinery Import-Export Company (CPMIEC) is now offering the HQ-16 VLS SAM for export with a designation of LY-80. The navalized HQ-16 system is currently serving on-board the PLAN Type 054A FFG.
After all those years, they are still hawking the old LY-60 SAM (The Pakistan Navy is the only known export success)
