Also at the Air Show, the China South Industries Group Corporation unveiled its 30 millimetre caliber 6 barrel mobile Gatling gun.

According to the manufacturer, it can fire a curtain of bullets to destroy enemy aircraft and cruise missiles at very close range.

However, in the international arms sale market, Chinese defence industries have only achieved limited success in exporting advanced military aviation and air defense weapons.

"Though the process of exploring foreign markets would be extremely difficult, the existence of China-made advanced weapons offers non-traditional allies of the West an alternative choice and would subtly change international relations," Bai Wei, former deputy chief editor of the Aviation World Monthly, said.
