looking at the type 1130 CIWS I'm curious if they can integrate the HHQ-10 at the side of the turret creating something like Pantsir CIWS. IMO there's no need for the complicated missile reloader that necessitate deck penetration, just reload manually like the usual HHQ-10. I'm pretty sure they've shown the concept at Zhuhai airshow before.

This can work if the missile is a MANPADS that uses command guidance via optical, or has an IR head that can be stored on room temperatures such as the Strela, maybe you can do it that way. But the HHQ-10 has an IR head that works more like a the seeker of IR-AAMs you see in fighter jets, like PL-8 or PL-10. To achieve a high level of sensitivity, the head has to be cooled, and the entire HHQ-10 launcher itself appears to have a refrigeration unit underneath that ducts cold air to the seeker heads. The missiles are meant to be stored in a way the head is under refrigerated condition.

Hmm didn't notice that detail before. Too bad then.
