notes"The HQ-7 SAM is used by PLA and PLAAF for short-range air-defense. At some PLAAF bases, the HQ-7 is deployed in hardened shelters. The PLA has mounted the HQ-7 on towed trailers. The HongQi 7 (HQ-7) short-range air defense missile system has been developed in China in the 1980s. It is a reverse engineered copy of the French Crotale. Sometimes it is referred as Sino Crotale. In 1978-1979 China imported some of the Thomson-CSF Crotale systems for evaluation. These where both land-based and ship-based versions. Some French R-440 Sea Crotale systems were purchased and installed on the Chinese warships. Eventually China reverse engineered this system. First Chinese clone of the ground-based version was produced for testing in 1983. In 1986-1988 it was approved for production. The HQ-7 was also deployed by the Chinese air force and protected the air bases from air attacks. Since 1989 the HQ-7 was proposed for export customers as the FM-80."

notes"export version of the HQ-7. It was revealed in 1989."
name"HHQ-7"
notes"a naval version of the HQ-7. It was introduced in the 1990s. It has a bank of 8 missiles. For over a decade it was the standard Chinese ship-based air defense system. Currently a more capable HQ-9 with a longer range is being fitted on newly-built Chinese warships."
name"Shahab Tagheb"
notes"an Iranian short-range air defense missile system. It was revealed in 1999. It was developed with Chinese assistance and by transferring technology of the HQ-7."
name"HQ-7A"
notes"improved variant introduced in 1998. It has a maximum range of fire of 15 km. Detection range is 25 km and tracking range is 20 km. Also this missile has a maximum speed of 900 m/s in stead of 750 m/s."
name"HQ-7B"
notes"latest variant, based on indigenous 6x6 armored chassis. It was first revealed somewhere in 2009. This air defense system is wisely used by the Chinese armed forces. It is more mobile due to its 6x6 configuration. This vehicle is more suited to follow motorized infantry, or mechanizes armored units."
