|South Korea has completed development of Bi-Ho twin 30mm gun with Shingung guided missiles.|
South Korea's arms procurement agency announced Friday, December 27, 2013, that it completed development of a multipurpose air defense vehicle Bi-Ho with Shingung guided missiles based on indigenous technology. This self-propelled anti-aircraft defense system, Bi Ho provides final and close-in air defense against low altitude aircraft and helicopters.
Bi-Ho twin 30mm self-propelled anti-aircraft gun with two Shingung missile launchers on each side of the turret.
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 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.
