China’s World First Air-to-air Missile for Helicopter Feiyan-90


In Shenzhen Satellite TV’s Military Information Direct Broadcast program yesterday, it is revealed that according to a CCTV footage, China is the first to have developed an air-to-air missile for helicopter with the codename of Feiyan-90.

The US and Russia use in their helicopters the air-to-air missile for fighter jets. They are too big and heavy. For example, an air-to-air missile for US fighter jet is 2.8 meter long and weighs 80 kg. A Feiyan-90 air-to-air missile is only 1.9 meters long and weighs only 20 kg. That enables a helicopter to carry more air-to-air missiles to hit enemy helicopters.

    This technology is way ahead of the USA and Russia by a long way. An A to A missile that size and the range and speed of that to be effective has to be very efficient , potent and a good range. I am trying to look up some specs on that. This technology is definitely a game changer in helicopter warfare, it can be use to hit vital targets besides other helicopters. This 45 lb missile besides using explosive to destroy its targets also utilizes kinectic energy.
