    Sorry 3.7 Inch. They look similar to 88 mm flak and I was a kid back then.


    I don't know how many launchers each battery would have but 4 batteries should be adequate to cover the following backed with pantsir.

    • RWP/ISB/Kamra and everything imp in between
    • Gujranwala/LHR/Sargodha
    • Multan/Shorkot (if placed properly).
    • KHI, Hyderabad e.t.c


    Yes, saw the poster here but was not sure. This wall shows that PA is serious.

    For the HQ-9:

    Cited battery composition is one variant of the YLC-2V acquisition radar, one HT-233 engagement radar, 8 x Taian TAS-5380 TELs, with 32 ready rounds, one vehicle for battery positioning, one generator vehicle, one support vehicle and a mobile command post.

    https://www.ausairpower.net/APA-HQ-9-FD-FT-2000.html

    The export version will likely have 4-6 TELs.

    Fd-2k or hq-9b With > 200 km radius range air distance not land it covers pak in north from Eastern to western border in south it’s may partially

    So 4 batteries will cover most population centers and military complexes

    Hq-9c is even more range over 300 km but was still in development back in 2014-15 not sure what is the current status

    100km (FT-2000), 200 km (HQ-9), 250 km (HQ-9A), or 300 km (HQ-9B)

    There is only one export version offered right now, and that is the FD-2000. Max range: 125km, ARH terminal.

    Each FD-2000 battery costs upwards of US$ 200 million, lets see how many PA AD can afford.

    Apache can be engaged by Army Air Defence (Radar controlled guns, MANPADS, ESHORADS) and Army Aviation (attack helos).

    A well organised and structure used ground air defence, like ours, can bring the Hell on the Apaches by using the tactical right deployment and surprise of 12.7.mm and Manpads, communication between all units during air alert, rightly detection by radar and human observers, correctly identification between friends and foe, full fire clearance for all ground weapons, including all MG-3 and mounted 12.7mm of Tanks and APC and air defence weapons, heavy AA guns 37mm and 57mm can build up a deadly air defence shield which no Indian Pilot would like to face at day and night, all attack Helicopter operations were successful against a badly organized military and by absolutely air dominance, which India doesn't have. Indian Apaches will, of course, inflict loses to us, but will pay an equal or heavier price, I can guarantee it you, because I was trained to defend my position against air attacks especially against Helicopters, and fill these task with a combination of MG-3 and Manpads. We (German Army) didn't have the luxury of mass-produced available 12.7mm AA guns and 37mmAA guns like Pakistan Army, the Flakpanzer Gepard (aa gun tank, like soviet shilka), was reserved for more important units like Tanks and other formation. We as the simple Soldiers had to fight with less, the Pakistan Army has in these case at a unit level more. Give me the task and your equipment and I promise you I will and can bring down Indian Apaches! Inshallah!
