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.
