Awesome. I think the same concept as S-400. Janes mentioned about the smaller missiles here

Apart from range which S-400 is superior, do you think HQ-9B is better than S-400 ?
Actually I am curious what are the relative sizes of this smaller missiles to the HQ-22 as wouldn't these smaller missiles currently creep into the role of the HQ-22 assuming they are shorter ranged but more maneuverable and potentially cheaper missiles bar the difference in guidance between the HQ-9 and HQ-22?
