The China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC) will showcase the FK3 surface-to-air missile defense system at the Zhuhai airshow in China this week.

The missile defense system can intercept threats from cruise missiles, airplanes, helicopters, and large UAVs, according to local media reports.

 The FK-3 is a variant of Kai-Shan 1 (KS-1) missile with enhanced range to 100km, and altitude from 50 m to 27 km. The launching rail is replaced by launching/transportation tubes, with firepower doubled from two to four. FK-3 has a dual mode command & control guidance system to counter electronic jamming.

The system is mounted on a four-axle Shaanxi Automobile heavy truck chassis. The slope is designed to deflect the heat of the launch, allowing a fast reload.

The FK-3 can operate as a stand-alone system or in cooperation with other FK3, or in cooperation with other air-defense systems. Normally, an FK-3 launch vehicle would a accompanied by a command vehicle, a radar vehicle, and a loader vehicle carrying additional missiles.
