It can conduct air combat with Beyond Visual Range (BVR) missiles and short-range air-to-air missiles, air-to–surface attack with air-to-surface missiles, air-to-ship missiles, precision guided weapons and conventional bombs and also basic and tactical flight training.
On September 1, CATIC carried out the second 2021 "Paper for Tree" activity in 2021, and launched the "Clothes for Love" donation activity together with "Our Heart for Love" public welfare project.
The young people of the company collected used newspapers and books from the office and sold them, then used the proceeds for the tree planting activities in the following year. The old clothes, books, bags and bedding donated by all the employees were used again to bring warmth and greetings to the people in need in undeveloped areas.
Enhancing the awareness of environmental protection and establishing the concept of public welfare, CATIC will continue to carry out public welfare activities and actively take up social responsibility.
