Has there ever been images of the Yuans firing anti ship missiles? Do we know which missiles they can fire?

Also, how would a submarine provide targeting for ashms typically? Is it through sonar?

One possibility for example would be or I imagine it could be: a very low frequency signal is sent, a simple letter meaning "there is a message", the submerged submarine deploys a small buoy to the surface and connects with the satellite network and receives the coordinates and the order to attack, and launches a missile for example currently a YJ-18.

I think sonar in general is probably the best way for a submarine to locate target for anti-ship missile. Although, I'm not a fan of submarines launching anti-ship missiles. They don't do enough damage to surface ships compared to torpedoes. They are also more likely to give away submarine location

But they could, OTOH, launch from a location well within the usual AAW alert radius. Though I still doubt the size of salvo would be enough.

Self-explanatory.
