China had completed the 30th test of its fifth-generation short-range air-to-air missile, the PL-10, developed for various advanced fighters of the People's Liberation Army according to Jane's Defence Weekly on Sept. 20.

Designed by Luoyang Electro-Optical Research Institute, the missile was seen being carried by a J-20 stealth fighter for the first time in a photograph posted to a Chinese website back in 2013. This indicates that China's first domestic fifth-generation stealth fighter is capable of firing the missile in future aerial warfare. Later on, the missile was seen on the wingtip of a J-11 fourth-generation fighter as the report said.

Liang Xiaogeng, the deputy chief designer of the PL-10 said in a Chinese television interview that this new missile is fitted with a multi-element imaging infrared seeker with anti-jamming capabilities. With super maneuverability, the PL-10 is capable of launching high off-boresight attacks. The television interview for the first time ever gave the details of the PL-10 missile since the beginning of its development seven years ago.

The PL-10 has an attack range of 20 kilometers. It has a weight of 89 kilograms and a length of 3 meters. The prototype of PL-10 was completed in 2013. Since then, it has been test-fired 30 times by various fighters of the PLA Air Force and navy. Photos taken in 2013 indicate that the PL-10 uses thrust vectoring vanes in its motor exhaust. A new helmet-mounted display may be used by this new weapon system as well.
