    Tacky PLA traditions. Just like those white helmets and monotone overalls on the pilots. They look like LEGO people.

    CJ-10/DH-10 is I believe the final nail in Taiwan's coffin. Defending the island without US help is no longer strategically viable at all without a major, sudden improvement in Taiwanese assets.

    if CJ-10 is a land based LACM, is DH-10 land based ASM or ship based LACM?

    so China now has ballistic missile, LACM, long range Air-surface missile, LGB and UAV as means of engaging enemy targets, that's a lot of investments Taiwan has to make in order to effectively neutralize.

    The USAF and USN can cope with these when necessary. Taiwan will be safe.

    nope, you'll need more than just one carrier battlegroup to "cope" with anything at China's doorstep, and quite frankly, washington is far less determined to protect Taiwan than Beijing is to take it.

    Who says only one CSG would show up? And the USAF would be right there too. But, hey, there is too much money to be lost in trade for such a scenario to play out. Everyone has their hands in everyone else's pockets, no one wants to see the trans-Pacific trade ruined by a silly war, do they. The potential economic loss moderates all sides.

    which is why i say that Beijing is far more determined, for washington their concern is money, for Beijing, at some point, the Taiwan issue will escalate into a question of its leadership if it remains unresolved indefinitely. i am quite confident in my understanding of this aspect of the issue. but we are getting off topic.

    Okay, let's not turn this into a political or China vs Taiwan discussion. Let's stick with cruise and anti-ship missile.

    Whats the status of C 803 subsonic/supersonic anti ship missile? Is it in service with PLAN? And is been exported to PN according to a rumor?

    YJ 12 is that still alive and kicking?

    There is no such thing as C-803. C-802 series is pretty much equivalent to YJ-83 series I guess, although not exactly the same.

    I do think there is supersonic AShm in development somewhere, but I haven't seen any deployment (as YJ-12 or anything else).
