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-8 and YJ-81 have a maximum range of 40 and 80 kilometers respectively. The YJ-82 missile, C-802 export name, has a range of 120 kilometers and is intended to provide coastal defense launched from land mobile platforms. The C-802A is an improved variant of YJ-82 available for export customers beginning in 2005. All these variants are subsonic missiles with terminal guidance radar seeker. The mid-course navigation is based on the Inertial Navigation System (INS). Each missile is provided with a 165kg armor-piercing warhead. The missile's flight altitude varies from 20-30 meters cruise to 7 meters at the terminal stage.

The YJ-83 is a long-range anti-ship missile designed to meet the requirements of the PLA Navy (PLAN). The YJ-83 has a range of 150 to 200 kilometers and introduces a data-link to receive target updates from airborne assets such as helicopters or fixed-wing aircraft. The YJ-83 can fly at supersonic speeds (Mach 1.5) during the terminal phase of the flight (approx 15 kilometers). The PLAN is deploying the YJ-83 missile as the standard anti-ship missile onboard frigates and destroyers.
