Again, from where this story is coming from?

True account is following:


HQ-9 is good but no need to exaggerate.
The actual data is not publicly available, so we cannot say for sure either way.
For example, the ceiling, Some say 30 km , others say 40km.
The 40km ceiling for HQ-9B came from a former Lt General of Army air defence, so there's a lot of credibility to it.

There was a long articles from xinhuanet in 2015 talking about HQ-9 deal with Turkey in Chinese. It did mention HQ-9 was the only system hitting all 9 targets during the trial.

Indeed. Some countries do not make military trials public while others are more transparent. Turkish POV came out eventually (original link provided by me). Every single source points back to it so it is authentic.

HQ-9 is very well documented in fact. B variant has 41 KM engagement ceiling which is impressive. Pk for ballistic missiles is 30% per shot, and for aircraft is 90% per shot. Maximum range for engaging an aircraft is about 250 KM (equal to S-400 with 48N6E2 interceptor) but this would be possible with multi-radar setup. Pakistan have multi-radar setup so no issue.

There are aspects in which HQ-9 outrange Patriot for instance. This is correct. But there are aspects in which Patriot is better. There are trade-offs to be precise.

My position is simple: just be factual and not make dubious claims. This is all.

Some members do not read the posts and repeat same claims over and over again.

But there is no independent confirmation. Not from Turkey either.

9 targets could be anything. Turkey cannnot stress-test systems like USA can.

@PanzerKiel are there any plans for PA to acquire some rapid deploy able medium to long range radars to supplement the HQ-16 batteries , in addition to the existing network of YLC-2 + YLC-18A
like the PLA uses JY-12 to support its HQ-16 batteries

Of course, the article is from the Chinese side with all the details and names of Turkey offical etc... and the back story explaining why the HQ-9 deal with Turkey failed to materialize at the end. That's one side of the story. whether you believe or not is up to each individual.

But there is really no such thing as independent confirmation with most weapon systems in the world other than weapon manufacturer's claim.

Friend, independent confirmation comes from combat situations and/or transparency. Patriot continues to evolve as a system. Patriot configuration in 1991 flopped in combat situations. Patriot became much better and have impressive intercept record in combat situations since 2003. There is also footage of Patriot intercepting complex targets in American trials (transparency). Patriot continues to evolve and would be something new entirely by 2023.

And about HQ9? Accounts.

When the time comes and the system proves itself, praise will come naturally.

WE should not be like Russians. Create lot of hype and than make excuses later.

My critic extends to S-400 system as well even thought it is more capable than HQ-9 in some aspects.

S400 was part of bid process and lost on …

It was selected according to rumors because the coup in Turkey 🇹🇷 was predicted by Russian intelligence and shared withTurkey which was according to sources sponsored by the west and that enraged Turkey and got closer to Russian

What’s the truth who knows
