    Myanmar Air Force Signs For JF-17 Squadron

    Press reports suggest that the mystery launch customer of the AVIC/PAC JF-17 ‘Thunder’ is Myanmar Air-Force with an order of 10-12 units. AVIC has never officially disclosed the identity of the client.

    The PAC JF-17 Thunder, or CAC FC-1 Xiaolong (Fierce Dragon), is a lightweight, single-engine, multi-role combat aircraft developed jointly by thePakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) and the Chengdu Aircraft Corporation (CAC) of China. The JF-17 can be used for aerial reconnaissance, ground attack and aircraft interception. Its designation “JF-17” byPakistan is short for “Joint Fighter-17”, while the designation and name “FC-1 Xiaolong” by China means “Fighter China-1 Fierce Dragon”.

    Former attempts to sell the JF-17 to Sri-Lanka, Nigeria and Argentina have so far failed.

    "Myanmar army appears to have imported new air defense systems from Russia, it may be a Buk missile or Tor. Myanmar’s military blog recently published pictures taken at a wharf in the country showed that the appearance of the base chassis specialized MZKT-6922 system as the basis for modern air defense missiles from Russia. This sparked speculation that Myanmar’s military may have to import a certain weapon systems from Russia. Because part of the roof is covered by canvas difficult identify whether this chassis carrying any weapons systems.

    According to the Russia documents, the current base chassis MZKT-6922 is used as a platform to put the improved variant of air defense missile systems Tor, Buk, Osa-1T and T38 9K33-1T Stiletto. Specifically, MZKT-6922 is used as the chassis for air defense systems Tor-M2E short-range is designed to destroy most of the air targets such as aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, cruise missiles, smart bombs.

    Tor-M2E air-navigation allows 4 channel 4 rocket attacks leading 4 goals at the same time, ultra-fast response time is only 7 seconds, air-to-air missile launcher 9M331 high vertical with 10km range, shot 16km distance, speed 1km/s. Based on a MZKT-6922 can also be used in a variation of air defense systems Buk-M2E medium-range. The gas component Buk-M2E system resource use based on a MZKT-6922. The system is capable of destroying targets up to 30km high-altitude, long-range 70km, the lower the probability is very high goals.



    MZKT-6922 chassis is also used as the basis for anti-aircraft missile system Osa-1T 9K33-1T – upgraded variant of 9K33 Osa system produced by the Soviet Union, made by companies Tetraedr of Belarus. The system is equipped with ammunition missile with a range of 20km 9M33M3-1, additional camera channels aiming Day / Night OES-1T.

    The «Kvadrat-M» is an modernized Surface to Air Missile system developed by Belarusian company Alevkurp JSC. The «Kvadrat-M» using a MZKT-6922 lightweight wheeled chassis similar to that used by the «Buk-2M» and «Tor».

    Repairs to the modernization of «Kvadrat-M» made of “ALEVKURP” together with JSC “Plant 2566 repair electronic equipment” (RB).

    As anti-aircraft missiles are, with high probability, not be used outdated original 3M9 missiles and rockets from SAM “Buk-M1” or “Buk-M1-2” – 9M38M1 or 9M317E respectively (Russia recently supplied the weapons for SAM 9M317E Belarusian air defense system “Buk-MB”, which was exported to Azerbaijan).

    Myanmar Mi-2 military helicopter crashes,3 dead

    Three Burma Army officers died when an MI-2 military helicopter crashed today in Pegu’s Daik-U Township, according to the Office of the Commander-in-Chief.

    The office’s initial report stated that the chopper, having undergone major maintenance at Meiktila air base, took off around 9 a.m. for Tenasserim’s Myeik air base. The chopper stopped in Taungoo, also in Pegu, to refuel and then continued toward Hmawbi, in Rangoon Division. Due to bad weather, it crashed before reaching its final destination.

    The pilot, Maj Yan Naing Htoo, co-pilot Capt Tun Tun Naing and Sgt Tin Tun Lwin were reportedly killed on the spot. There is an open investigation into the cause of the accident.

    This is the fourth known air force accident in recent months. In February, a Beechcraft airplane crashed near Naypyidaw International Airport, killing all five army officers onboard; in March, there was a runway accident at the same airport due to a mechanical failure; in April another chopper crashed in Mandalay Division.
