HQ-61 / RF-61 / SD-1 / Model Type 571
CSA-N-2

The HQ-61 [Hongqi /Hungchi = Red Leader ] missile is responsible for intercepting jet fighters in the low- to medium-altitudes. The missile's rear control wing is similar to that of the Standard missile made by the United States. This surface-to-air missile can also be used as a ship-to-air antiaircraft missile. Photographs of a November 1995 Chinese Navy exercise offered the first public sighting of this RF-61 (CSA-N-2) surface-to-air missile.
