    This is a medium range air defense system, what does Pakistan use for Long Range air defense? What are their future procurement plants?

    These systems were ordered since 2011-2012 and ever since the deliveries have continued but the recent delivery that has been made of the system the interceptors have been modified to the requirements of Pakistan. they are more lethal than the average LY-80 system.

    For long range it is not disclosed what is being used but speculations are that there are HQ-9 systems present an order was placed but not disclosed, now the LY-80 system have been purchased long time ago but not disclosed it has been recently disclosed on the delivery of the full order which was later extended in 2014 the talks have also been going on about S-400 but no confirmation on that. HQ-9 has been sighted in some places.
