    Interesting article about PL-15 Air-to-Air Missiles (AAM)

    The first article is basically paraphrasing skywatcher's post on his blog, and there is still a level of trepidation as to what PL-15 really is, so it's worth keeping in mind that Huitong's assessment of PL-15 as it is may not be wholly accurate.

    also, we have an AAM thread: https://www.sinodefenceforum.com/chinese-aam.t1481/page-24#post-365713

    Is there any data on the K/YBS500?

    It was first unveiled at the 2012 Zhuhai airshow but most of the information has been kept under wraps.

    It supposedly comes in five variants:
    1. Guided/unguided cluster bomb
    2. Glide bomb
    3. Aircraft borne submunitions dispenser
    4. Unguided air-to-surface rocket
    5. Guided air-to-surface missile

    No, that was from a tv show/news some months ago. Claiming something like 7 years of development for new missile, 30 test shots fired and so on. last slide was for weight, 89 kilos, 3 meter length, 20 km range. Of course the figures are most probably guesstimates or very rough rounding downs.

    This is a show of a local tv station. They are just as informed as we fanboys, often less informed actually.

    You have very good infos here with also laser designator
    http://www.eastpendulum.com/nouveau-pod-de-designation-laser-j-10

    Chinese laser guided bombs

    Many Chinese manufacturers offer Bgls the domestic market and for export include for example -
    • 'Tiange "family (TG-xx-xx or GB) of land armaments group NORINCO
    • the "Feiteng" family (FT-xx) aerospace group CASC
    • YZ family aerospace group CASIC (* thank you Bruno Rouers for the reminder, see comments)
    • the "Lei Shi" family (LS-xx) the AVIC aeronautics group

    These families come in several categories and different guidance modes, ranging from 50kg to 000kg smaller to 1 for the largest. Of planed versions are also available.

    The first generation of BGL selected by the Air Force and the Chinese Navy is LS500J the AVIC Group. This is the BGL that the J-10 used in the television broadcast of the beginning.

    The LS500J, also known as LT-2 name for its export version, which weighs 564kg 450kg of explosive charge. 10km et il peut atteindre une précision de CEP ≤ 6,5m selon son constructeur. ">Its range is> 10km and can achieve a CEP accuracy ≤ 6.5m according to its manufacturer.

    Guided by a double laser beam and capable of performing an S maneuver when approaching the target, this Chinese BGL remains nevertheless a bomb of the first generation with the digital guide, like the US GBU-16 Paveway II . The target must remain illuminated until impact, which means that the designator on the ground or flying rocket with a pod must remain on area to guide the bomb, which exposes them to potential danger during flying bombs.

    In the top story pilots say they have had to remain above the target for the "tens of second" flying bombs.

    For new laser guided bombs, the Chinese army seems to have chosen the TG-250 and TG models of 250kg-500kg of 500 NORINCO group. Their range is greater than 20km and the accuracy is less than 4m CEP.

    The guidance mode "proportional" and a wider field of vision of the seeker, these two new models of HMOs can limit the loss of energy of the bomb for course correction, we can achieve more planée great range and better accuracy.

    A version with a glider kit is also available for TG-250, its scope is extended to over 80km, higher than most of the close air defense systems.
