China has successfully developed a next-generation air-to-air missile (AAM), known as the Key Model.

The Key Model has successfully passed the designed type approval test with all seven missiles hitting their targets.

The missile has been designed by Air-to-Air Missile Research Institute deputy director Fan Huitao, under the Aviation Industry Corporation of China.

The missile has been designed, produced, delivered and made combat effective within one year to meet the Chinese Air Force’s requirement.

The Key Model is an international-advanced AAM model, which will help China to reinforce the power of national defence, according to People’s Daily.
