Description: The TianYan-90 (TY-90) is an air-to-air missile (AAM) developed on the basis of the QW-2 shoulder launched surface-to-air missile (SAM) to be fired from rotary-wing aircraft. The missile's infrared seeker is specially designed to operate near the ground with intense clutter to engage other rotary-wing aircraft and fixed-wing airplanes flying at low altitude. A surface-to-air variant was also developed on the basis of the TY-90. The People's Liberation Army (PLA) Army Aviation Corps is the primary user of the TY-90 missile on its Mi-171 and Z-9W (WZ-9?) attack helicopters. The Z-10 and Z-19 attack and scout helicopters are another candidate platform for this air-to-air missile. The TY-90 missile can engage helicopters at ranges of 500 meters to 6 kilometers and is equipped with a laser fuze and a 3 kg High Explosive (HE) warhead capable of piercing the light armor of Western attack helicopters such as AH-64 Apache. This missile is powered by a solid propellant rocket motor. It entered service with the PLA Aviation Corps around 2002.
