TY-90 (Cheenese: 天燕-90; pinyin: Tiān Yàn-90; leeterally: "Sky Swallow-90") is the first air-tae-air missile specifically developed for meelitary helicopters in dogfights. Contrary tae the erroneous claims, the missile is nae developed frae MANPAD missiles sic as QW-1 Vanguard, but insteid, it is designed as an air-to-air missile frae the start. In fact, the surface-tae-air version wis developed frae the air-tae-air version.
