    Big supersonic missiles with their tremendous heat signatures are easier to engage than smaller subsonic sea skimmers. The subsonic missiles do not have anything like the heat signatures of 3M80 etc. and they fly much lower. Less costly to produce too, so navies can afford more of them.

    You might find this interesting. It's amazing what Google will find!

    pictures coming out for ChangJian-10 (meaning long sword-10) LACM. I guess this is suppose to be Chinese equivalent of the tomahawk missile serving for the 2nd artillery. btw, this is supposed to be the same as DH-10.

    Wow, this is a major unveiling. We have been waiting for final confirmation on this hardware for a long long time.

    It's a bit of a surprise to see land based launchers though.

    It looks like it's in a big city like Beijing so this could be part of the National Day parade.

    hmm, DH-10 is probably the name for the navy. CJ-10 is the name for the 2nd artillery.

    If Chinese bbs is correct, then CJ-10 will be 1 of the 5 new missiles they are showing. Should be the following
    车辆第26方队 DF-15B 近程地地导弹
    车辆第27方队 DF-11A 近程地地导弹
    车辆第28方队 CJ-10 陆基巡航导弹
    车辆第29方队 DF-21C 中程地地导弹
    车辆第30方队 DF-31A 洲际导弹
    so DF-15B, DF-11A, CJ-10, DF-21C and DF-31A (no DF-41)

    also, they will be showing
    车辆第16方队 HQ-7 改进型野战防空导弹
    车辆第17方队 HH-9 /HH-16舰空导弹,混编,卡车搭载(海军)
    车辆第18方队 YJ-83 反舰导弹 ,卡车搭载(海军)
    车辆第19方队 YJ-62 岸舰导弹发射车(海军)
    车辆第20方队 HQ-9 地空导弹(空军)
    车辆第21方队 HQ-12 地空导弹,含照射制导雷达(空军)
    notice how HQ-9 and HH-9 are mentioned differently. I guess YJ-62 is still listed as a shore based AShM here.

    I'd like to know if the DF-21C can be the supposed ASBM we've heard about, what does it mean that it's in the parade? If the parade is suppose to show China's military achievements, doesn't that mean it has been tested and works? Or is there a non-ASBM version?
