    Recently, China completed delivery of LY-80 LOMADS to Pakistan, with the last batteries received by Army Air Defence. A total of nine batteries were ordered with an option of another three.

    The first battery was received in Jan 2017 and simultaneously inducted into 1 LOMAD Regiment. 3 LOMAD Regiment was raised earlier this year, with another regiment expected to be equipped soon.

    Won't happen. Pakistani military leadership has some allergy to LR-SAM

    Their preference is to protect their armoured divs and moving formations but, apparently, not the cities.

    It is all about preferences. An armoured div is a lot more important than a city.

    Excellent mobile cover for Pakistan's armoured units.

    Long time needed, but let's wait.

    Why purchase the old version? Can't you purchase the LY-80B with 70 km range or going to upgrade it later.

    I have doubts about the upgradation as the missiles are different, (may) need different canister ? I dont know... if thats not an issue i guess then its all about softwares and system upgrades.

    While some of you might be right regarding what the military could order, you’re not right regarding what the military should do. You don’t know the finances and the issues with trade and transfer and buying. Or raising units or training men for them. You know nothing of the on ground realties. So stop complaining about what the military does while you sit in in your homes please. The generals planning this aren’t dumb, they’re also rational people like you but with at least 3-4 decades more experience. It’s not as simple as just seeing an issue and fixing it. There’s multiple layers involved. Think rationally. Not ideally. And don’t think or speak at all when you don’t know the cause of the issue and it’s circumstance.
    On topic: I believe there will be more additions. Just with different systems. Our military does like to be diverse it seems. Procurement can’t just completely stop. We won’t have 9 batteries forever. So be patient.
