Beijing and Moscow have increased their anti-missile cooperation this year as the United States and its ally, the Republic of Korea, pushed forward a joint plan to deploy the long-range Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system in the ROK.

The X-band radar associated with the THAAD system has a maximum range of 2,000 km, a radius which is capable of covering parts of China and Russia.

Major General Cai Jun said that the two militaries held their first joint computer-simulated anti-missile drill in May in Moscow with the aim of "training the capabilities of both sides in joint air-defense and antimissile actions".
