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.
