The Shingung is a man-portable surface-to-air missile.

SEOUL (BNS): A South Korean defence company has put forward a proposal to sell its portable anti-aircraft missile system to India, according to a news report.

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.

The Shin-gung, meaning "God's Bow" in Korean, is being used by the South Korean Army since 2005.

The man-portable air-defence system (MANPAD) is capable of hitting targets as high as 3.5 kilometers with a speed of Mach 2.0 and a distance range of 7 km, according to the report.

The surface-to-air missile is marketed internationally under the name Chiron.
