BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – A new video clip posted this week shows a Chinese long-range guided missile launch from the Z-10 attack helicopter.

In the video shown by CCTV 13, the viewer can see how long-range missiles are fired from their helicopter and their launch process.

The missiles successfully hit all ground targets. According to the Dambiev Journal, this is presumably a missile called the Blue Arrow 21 (BA-21), which was first presented at the Zhuhai Air Show in 2018.

The missile is believed to have a working range of about 18 kilometers and is oriented with a two-channel guidance system.

The Dambiev Journal indicated that the missile may differ slightly from the one that appeared in 2018 at the Zhuhai Air Show.

It has a slightly different configuration. They concluded that this missile would be used to arm Chinese drones.

Obviously to avoid the launcher to be shot down by Pantsir, except that Pantsir now receives missiles with extended range!
