China is working on an active radar-guided air-to-air missile, with the China Leihua Electronic Technology Research Institute (CLETRI) to develop an active radar-guided seeker. The seeker, for use on what CLETRI describes as the AMR-1 missile, was shown at the Zhouhai air show. It uses a flat-plate antenna with a gimbal-mechanism reminiscent of the Russian AGAT 1103M associated with the active variant of the R-27 (AA-10 Alamo). It is not known whether the CLETRI is receiving Russian assistance on the project. The seeker may be intended for the PL-11 AAM, which is based on the Alenia Aspide airframe.
