Language: English
Subject: YJ-12, DF-25, Dong Neng-2, JL-1, HJ-9
Collection: Cruise Missiles of the People's Republic of China
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


The YJ-22 is a LACM (land-attack cruise missile) development of the anti-ship C-802 with a 400 km range, and possible GNSS/TM guidance currently said to be under development with an IOC expected after 2005. This 135-kilometer range system would be the first Chinese cruise missile to incorporate GNSS-assisted navigation. GNSS-aided guidance could be augmented by terrain contour matching TERCOM (Terrain Contour Matching) guidance. Some sources believe GNSS-aided navigation could result in cruise missiles like the YJ-22 to achieve accuracies of up to 10 meters.[1]
