Beijing: China`s indigenous modern military attack helicopter WZ-10 has launched its first air-to-air missile and successfully intercepted low-altitude targets.

The WZ-10 carried out the launch during a drill conducted by the People`s Liberation Army in Guangdong province last week, Xinhua reported.

The drill involved six operations, including providing covering fire, special assaults and movement by leapfrogging.

The WZ-10 is designed primarily for anti-tank missions and was first seen in public at the 9th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition in Zhuhai city in Guangdong in 2012.
