    Chinese anti-aircraft missile system KS-1SM in Thailand

    As reported, in the course of February 4, 2017 the open day at airbase 7th Wing RAF Thailand in Surat Thani in the south were first demonstrated elements of Thailand received the Chinese anti-aircraft missile system KS-1SM. It is reported that so far, Thailand has received one division of the SAM comprising one fire battery consisting of three or four self-propelled launchers.

    Recall that on the conclusion of a contract with Thailand to Chinese foreign trade association China Precision Machinery Import-Export Corporation (CPMIEC) for procurement division of the Chinese SAM KS-1 (HQ-12) became known in October 2016.

    Thailand thus became the third recipient of foreign SAM series KS-1 (HQ-12) after Myanmar (modification received KS-1A complexes) and Turkmenistan (which received a modification KS-1C). Differences of complex KS-1SM, supplied in Thailand, were not disclosed.

    SAM KS-1 (HQ-12) is the first more or less independently created in Chinese medium-range air defense systems, and has been designed and produced the Chinese Academy of Defense Technology (Academy of Defense Technology, better known as the "Second Academy CASIC»), which is part of state Corporation China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC). Although the system is carried out from the beginning of the 1990s, the export success of the new modifications of the complex began only in the last few years. The complex uses solid anti-aircraft missiles, and has to be modified KS-1C the claimed effective range of up to 70 km.
