The 30 mm caliber air defense system Bi-Ho was developed by combining the existing self-propelled gun vehicle called Bi Ho with the portable ground-to-air guided missile named Shingung, according to the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA).

The self-propelled gun has a range of 3 km and the surface-to-air guided missile having a range of 7 km.

The system development was launched in 2010, led by local defense companies such as Doosan Defense Systems & Technology, Samsung Thales and LIG Nex1.

The DAPA said that the system modernized the existing self- propelled guns developed in 1980s, while enhancing combat capabilities by integrating longer-range guided missiles that can strike aircrafts flying at a low altitude.

Bi-Ho, twin 30mm self-propelled anti-aircraft gun system, provides outstanding combat capability in the mountainous terrain in Korea. It offers outstanding mobility with a maximum speed of 60 km/h, effective firing range of 3 km, and high firing rate of 1,200 rounds/min.

Bi-Ho with missile system is a combined anti-aircraft weapons system consisting of a portable surface-to-air homing missile ‘Shingung’ and a 30mm antiaircraft gun ‘Biho’ that is developed to strengthen air defense capabilities of mechanized troops.

In order to mount two Shingung missiles on each side of Biho, a missile launcher, the driving system and power supplier are installed on an antiaircraft gun Biho and a new Shingung missile control feature is added to the existing fire control system.
