    air defense missile system hq-12 (ks-1a)

    anti-aircraft missile system of medium-range HQ-12 (HongQi-12, "Hongqi-12," "Red Flag-12" export designation - KS-1A) designed to engage enemy aircraft and helicopters at all altitudes of their combat use, day and night in all weather conditions.

    complex HQ-12 was developed by a Chinese company Jiangnan Space Industry, also known as the base 061. Prototyping complex began in the early 80s of the last century, as a replacement for outdated SAM HQ-2 (Chinese copy of the Soviet S-75). Transportable version of the complex under the designation KS-1 was submitted for testing in 1989. and was first shown at the Paris Air Show in 1991. Development SAM KS-1 was completed in 1994., But its serial production was not maximized because of serious shortcomings and lack of orders from the PLA and foreign buyers.

    Developing an improved version under the designation KS-1A began in the second half of the 90s. The main differences from the KS-1A KS-1 is a mobile launcher on the car chassis terrain, as well as new multi-functional radar H-200 in the complex. Since 2001, China's foreign trade corporation CPMIEC (China Precision Machinery Import-Export Corporation) offers a set of KS-1A on the world arms market. In 2005, officials of the Ministry of Defence of Malaysia announced a decision in principle to purchase SAM KS-1A until 2014.

    failures during testing of a new complex KS-1A stalled adopting it. In July-August 2007, when China celebrates 80th anniversary of the PLA, the new SAM comprising a mobile launcher and radar H-200 exhibited publicly in China Military Museum of the Revolution, under the designation HQ-12, indicating that the possibility of using it adopted PLA. Several batteries HQ-12 in 2009. participated in the military parade on the 60th anniversary of the PRC.


    air defense missile system hq-12 (ks-1a) The structure of HQ-12 SAM include:

    guided antiaircraft missile (SAM);

    launchers (see photo1, photo2, photo3);

    multifunctional radar illumination and guidance H-200;


    Technical Operations (Transport-loading machines, etc.) (see photo1, photo2).

    Single stage

    HQ-12 SAM (see diagram) is based on the normal aerodynamic scheme. Cylindrical missile body diameter 400mm, equipped with four wings in the rear of the chassis are four aerodynamic steering. Missile length - 5,6 m, launch weight of 886kg. Rocket boosters - the dual-mode solid. Warhead high-explosive type weighing 100kg, fitted radio controlled fuses. Maximum flight speed - 1200 m / s, the available overload 20g. Control system - radio command. The rocket is designed primarily to attack aircraft and helicopters and has limited combat capabilities in operations against modern precision-attack class "air-land" and the UAV.

    The launch

    - reclining, with launcher, suggestive in elevation and azimuth. Four transported launcher complex KS-1 is a modified version of PU SAM HQ-2 and has two rails. Upgraded mobile PU complex KS-1A located on the automobile chassis terrain 6x6. PU KS-1A also has two guide rail type with lower suspension missiles (see photo1, photo2, photo3). When deployed in the firing position PU mounted on hydraulic prop. Images published version PU KS-1A with the launch container box type (see photo), protecting rocket from external influence and facilitate maintenance and loading.

    station target tracking and missile guidance SJ-202 KS-1 complex is a three-coordinate radar, which allows simultaneously track six goals and inducing three of them 6-Zour. It has been reported that the likely work station in G-band. The radar antenna is transported on a trailer. Radar SJ-202 can be interfaced with the complex HQ-2.

    air defense missile system hq-12 (ks-1a) An improved version of SAM KS-1A differs from its prototype using the new radar illumination and guidance instead of H-200 SJ-202. Multifunction radar illumination and guidance H-200 consists of the antenna post placed on a four-trailer (see photo), and the hardware on the chassis container Taian TA5150A terrain 6x6 (see photo). Later, there were variants of this radar placed in two cars Taian TA5270A (6x6). Radar antenna device H-200 is a phased array antenna with circular rotation digital control of the beam, which is similar in size RLS lattice HT-233 HQ-9 complex. Instrumental detection range - 115km, maintenance - 80km. H-200 provides simultaneous guidance of six missiles on three goals. According to the developers of radar in H-200 delivers advanced data processing techniques to ensure effective selection purposes and protection from jamming devices. The station is equipped with a system of identification "friend or foe", an independent source of power and radio.

    Typical battery

    complex includes detection radar and missile guidance, four launchers with 8 and 18 SAM missiles ammo. According to some sources, the battery can be given to low-flying targets detection radar Type 120-HQ-9 complex.
