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