China Aerospace Science &Industry Corp (CASIC), the country's largest missile manufacturer, has developed a new missile to put out fire in tall buildings.

Special fire trucks equipped with the missiles made their debut in the just-concluded Civil-military Integration Development Exhibition of Technology and Industry for National Defence this July.

According to China Economic Weekly, the accurate system allows long-distance fire extinction in buildings above 100 meters high.

The system also costs less than imported high-end fire distinguishers.

For instance, a set of similar system from Finland costs some 20 million yuan, or, 3.2 million US dollars. A fire truck equipped with the homemade fire suppression missile only costs several mission yuan.

The missile system passed its initial test in Shaanxi province in September, 2013.
