Kanwa recently ran a bunch of stories on Chinese exports and they include the following:

China exporting B-611 and WS-1 to Turkey with ToT (already known before)

China exporting A-100 MLRS to Pakistan, they bought 1 battalion so far and looking to buy ToT for it in a deal that could be worth $200 million USD.

China offering various variants of HJ-8 ATGM and AR-1 ATGM at IDEX 2009.

China exporting FN-6 MANPAD to Pakistan. Even though Pakistan was already producing Anza mk-3 based on QW-2 missile, they have found the newly FN-6 to be that much superior. So, they are going for a new project with this improved technology. FN-6 has also been exported to Sudan. China is also offering the improved FN-16 for export, but it has no orders yet.

China exported two 200-tone gun boats to Cambodia. Nothing to fancy, just has a couple of naval guns, but I don't think Cambodia needs more than that.

China also exported several units of A-100 to Tanzania although the number/price are not disclosed.

China also exported a number of WS-2 MLRS to Sudan.

China exported 2 battalion of PLZ-45 to Kuwait and 1 battalion to Saudi. Apparently, China is also looking to sell GP-1 projectiles to Kuwait. It looks like Saudi is looking for more units of this if all goes well and also looking for possible ToT + local production.

Wow, that seems to be a lot. But is that all?

For the part of Cambodia imported two gun-boats from China. If I remember correctly, the number should be 9. I remember I saw an article sometime ago (not remember) where now. But some people claimed that most of the boats were donated, only a few were paid.

China to help Indonesia develop defense technology

The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Wed, 04/01/2009 11:47 AM | National

Following on from the signing of a memorandum of understanding by both Indonesia and China in 2007, the two countries are set to ink a new deal to work more closely in military technology, a top Defense Ministry official said on Wednesday, Antara reports.

"China will help Indonesia develop its military technology," the director of strategic environment analysis, Brig. Gen. Subekti, said in Beijing.

Subekti is attending a China-ASEAN top officers dialogue hosted by the Chinese Academy of Military Science from March 30 to April 2.

Indonesia is expecting China to help its state arms producer, PT Pindad; state-owned ship maker, PT PAL Indonesia; and state-owned aircraft manufacturer, PT Dirgantara Indonesia, to produce upper-medium-class military technology, he said.

"And not only helping us with technology, but also to help market the products produced through the deal," Subekti said.

In 2005, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono visited his Chinese counterpart, president Hu Jintao, in Beijing to sign a strategic partnership deal, which included an agreement to strengthen defense cooperation between both countries.

Indonesia was the first country in Southeast Asia to enter into such a partnership with China. (dre)

Malaysia has ordered a battery's worth of FN-6 MANPADS, delivery expected this year. However, the much publicized purchase of KS1A medium range SAM has yet to materialize.

do you have a link for FN-6? It looked like KS-1A simply didn't fit malaysia's requirement, which is quite understandable.

This is the best I can get on-line. A special report by a local Malaysian daily. Unfortunately its not in English:(

Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!


Gist of the report:
- Malaysia and China has long established ties
- Recognizing China's advancement in technology, Malaysia has bought FN-6 MANPAD
- Now Malaysia is considering KS-1A system
- KS-1A has better specifications than its competitors Hawk, Buk and Aster
- The competitors are also advanced but KS1A has 2 advantages: Cheap and transfer of technology

This is obviously not an objective report. Basically an interview with the local company promoting CHinese defense systems. It appeared early this month, in connjuction with Malaysia's prime minister visit to China. So its a sales pitch for KS-1A but meaning there is still hope for KS-1A yet!

np, something in your post set off the moderation (I won't mention what, but don't worry about it), so it's moderated by default as long as you have less than 10 posts I think.

As for your post, thanks for the info on FN-6, it's good to get a confirmation of the sale.
