When it comes to military technology and modernisation drive, China is currently outpacing every country, from testing hypersonic missiles and hypersonic glide vehicles to producing autonomous drones, new Navy ships, fifth generation fighter jets, tanks, defense systems and reconnaissance satellites.
The QW-12 portable defense system which was successfully tested is capable of shooting down drones, fighter jets, Helicopters, cruise missiles from the sky including tank projectiles.
According to Chinese media, the QW-12 portable defense system fired a missile which went at high speed, identified its target using infrared signals and destroyed even after the other side deployed decoys.
Surely this is a new capability that is capable of changing the situation in air during a war. Many fighter jets relay on decoys to distract the incoming missile from hitting the fighter jet but with this Chinese QW-12 portable defense system, that advantage is nolonger there which puts fighter jets and pilots in danger.
China is among the few countries which can produce their own portable defense system independently and has been improving on already existing portable defense systems. QW-12 is designed with the most advanced technologies, giving it a small size, light weight and high firepower.
