Description: The People's Liberation Army (PLA) YJ-12 is a family of air-launched, long-range, highly supersonic missiles designed to take out large surface ships, radar sites and ground-based targets protected by sophisticated air defense systems such as the US Navy's AEGIS weapon system. Its development started in the late 1990s or early 2000s under the management of China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC). The missile's navigation system combines the Inertial navigation system (INS) with the Beidou satellite positioning system for the mid course with the terminal guidance carried out by an active radar seeker or an infrared imaging sensor. The propulsion system combines a solid fuel rocket booster and a liquid fuel ramjet to achieve Mach 3 or 4 top speed. The missile can be fitted with either a blast fragmentation or a penetration warhead depending on the mission profile. The YJ-12 is a heavyweight missile with two missiles carried by the new H-6K bomber and only one on the JH-7B attack aircraft. The YJ-12 missile leverages some technologies from the Soviet Kh-15 Mach 5 cruise missile of the 1980s. The PLA may put into service this new missile family in the 2015-2020 timeframe.
The Chinese YJ-12E, also known as CM-302, is a supersonic, anti-ship, cruise missile developed by China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp (CASIC). The CM-302 missile has a maximum range of 290 kilometers carrying a 250 kg warhead with a kill probability of 90 percent. The missile is an export version of the YJ-12 missile and was unveiled at the Zuhai Air Show in November 2016.
