    ----------

    China's HQ-16 (export name LY-80) Surface-to-Air Missile has thrust vectoring.

    Thrust-vectoring on the HQ-16 increases maneuverability. This means the HQ-16 SAM is ultra-lethal. You wouldn't want four HQ-16 SAMs simultaneously chasing your fighter jet.

    Why the fins are seen if missile is thrust victor?

    There is no nozzle for thrust vectoring.

    Ok so apparently this type of control is TVC 'vanes'.

    1."Jet vane control" is one of the Thrust vectoring methods

    2. Jet Vane only works when the rocket motor is working ,but the rocket motor of the missile doesn't work all the time during the flight(except the SR-missiles)...that's why the aerodynamic surfaces are still required...
