Hello once again! Im about to suggest an anti air for China between the PGZ04A and Tor-M1, the Hunter-1 SAM!

Hunter-1

Description:

Spoiler

The Hunter-1 is a Chinese surface to air missile SAM system based on the United States Army’s AN/TWQ-1 Avenger. The system features a turret housing 8 TY-90s (some sources say FN-6, however the one im suggestion has missile containers that are the same as all the other TY-90 missile containers) with a maximum range of 6 kilometers.

FB-6A-PDSAM-1S

^ This is the FN-6 variant, which is different from the Hunter-1!

The Hunter-1 employs a tracking system comprising a TV camera, thermal camera, and laser range finder. Its primary purpose is air defense, providing short-range protection against aerial threats. The Hunter-1 is part of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) mechanized infantry division’s air defense arsenal.

History:

Spoiler

The Hunter-1 system, developed by China, draws inspiration from the US Army’s AN/TWQ-1 Avenger Short Range Air Defense (SHORAD) system.

The Hunter-1 is a vehicle-mounted version of the TY-90, initially unveiled in 2005 - 6. It’s built on the Shenfei SFQ2040 platform, weighing approximately 4.6 tons. The system incorporates a one-man turret positioned between two quadruple launchers. Equipped with an electro-optical fire control system, it features infrared, laser, and TV sensors.

The launching vehicle of the Hunter-1 carries TY-90s. These missiles excel at engaging low-flying targets, making them ideal for air defense scenarios.

Mobility:

The vehicle the weapon system is mounted on is the Shenfei SFQ2040 with a Cummins 4BTAA-92 turbodiesel engine with about 92HP, achieving about 120km/h speed. The vehicle itself weight about 2.3 tons while being able to carry 1.25 tons. It has a length of about 4.7 meters, a width of 2.1 meters and a height of 1.75 meters. Its capable of carrying up to 4 crewmembers. Finding images of the exact chassis without the weapon system is hard, this is the closest i could find.

Seems like a worse Type-93. Given the Type-93 was a short-range, not a long-range this seems more like a mid-range. Not a bad thing however from a mid-distance countermeasures are essential to combat Heli’s until they close the distance in which the missiles will struggle a bit. Probably not much though.

TY-90s are, objectively, better in all aspects than stingers.
