SEOUL (BNS): A South Korean defence company has put forward a proposal to sell its portable anti-aircraft missile system to India, according to a news report. The LIG Nex1 Co. has offered its Shingung portable missiles to India, a defence official said. “LIG Nex1 submitted a request for a proposal early this year to the Indian government to export the Shingung portable missiles,” the unnmaned official was quoted as saying by the Yonhap news agency recently. The Shingung, meaning "new bow and arrow" in Korean, is being used by the South Korean Army since 2005. The shoulder-mounted weapon is capable of hitting targets as high as 3.5 kilometers with a speed of Mach 2.0 and a distance range of 7 km, according to the report. The surface-to-air missile is marketed internationally under the name Chiron.
