    Subsonic land attack Kalibr is much shorter than supersonic antiship one is beyond a doubt, and should fit within a 7 meter deep VLS. YJ-18 appears to be a straight off rip of the Kalibr family, I would expect them to follow every step.

    Supposedly there are meant to be some differences between YJ-18 and the 3M54, but it is certainly heavily influenced without a doubt.

    In particular I'm interested in whether we could ever get some exact dimensions for YJ-18 (length) as well as some details about its booster; the 3M54 family have potato masher fins on the booster, I have yet to see clear pictures of YJ-18's.


    As for the length of the land attack variant, yes I think there is a good chances that YJ-18's land attack variant may be capable of fitting in the 7m deep UVLS, following similar precedent and pattern in the 3M54 family.

    My post on the previous page included a table with dimensions for the 3M54 family missiles, which will probably prove instructive for the YJ-18 family as well.

    Parade rehearsal. From the looks of it, these are YJ-18s under the wraps.

    A post implied that "Yankeesama" predicted the appearance of a land-attack YJ-18. I wonder if that will turn out true.
