Description: The YJ-8, CSS-N-4 Sardine NATO codename, is a family of anti-ship missiles developed by HaiYing Electro-Mechanical Technology Academy in China for use by surface ships, submarines, land and airborne platforms. The YJ-8 missile development started in the 1970s and deployed with the People's Liberation Army (PLA) in the late 1980s. In the 1990s, the PLA introduced the YJ-82 and YJ-83 variants featuring extended range. Basically, the YJ-8 is family of highly subsonic/supersonic, short, medium to long-range sea-skimming missiles.
The YJ-85, C-805 export name, is a supersonic, long-range, land-attack cruise missile variant of the YJ-8 anti-ship missile family. It is said that YJ-85 navigation system is based on a combination of GPS and terrain recognition. Overall performance of this land attack missile is close to the US SLAM which is, as well, a derivative of the Harpoon anti-ship missile. The YJ-85 may enter service with the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) by 2010.
