Serbia buys Chinese air defense systems

The Serbian Armed Forces have bought three Chinese FK-3 anti-aircraft missile systems, an export version of China’s H-22 medium-range air defense system.

The FK-3 has a range of up to 100 km while H-22 has a range of 150-170 km.

Serbia became the first foreign buyer of China’s FK-3 air defense system, local media reported.

Earlier, it was reported that the Serbian Defense Ministry purchased the Pantsir-S air defense system from Russia and intended to purchase the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system.

The Serbs could see the work of S-400 air defense systems during the joint exercises with Russia which were held in Serbia. Russian publication the Military Review notes that Serbia was probably not able to afford S-400 aid defense systems.

  1. “The Serbs could see the work of S-400 air defense systems during the joint exercises with Russia which were held in Serbia. Russian publication the Military Review notes that Serbia was probably not able to afford S-400 aid defense systems.”

    The truth is probably Serbia saw the Russian junk in action, then said we are not going to waste money on that, we’ll buy Chinese junk instead. Just surprised Russia didn’t offer the S400 as a freebie, or maybe they did, and Serbia still didn’t want it.

  2. Sparrows are gunned down with rifles in Serbia, not with air-defense missiles…………………..case closed.

What is your opinion?
