The AAM (air-to-air missile) PL-10 is the next generation IR-guided air-to-air missile in the same class as AIM-9X, ASRAAM, A-Darter and IRIS-T.

It features an IIR seeker and TVC, giving the missile a 90° off-boresight angle and excellent IRCCM capability against aerial target maneuvering at high-gs. It also has a "lock-after-launch" capability, which could extend its range to BVR.

The development of PL-10 started in 2005 and a test round was launched from the ground in November 2008. The development was projected to be completed by 2010.
