Tempointeraktif.com - Indonesia Buys Chinese Missile for Warships The Indonesian Navy (TNI AL) will use C-705 missiles from China in its locally-made fast missile boats (KCR). According to plan, 16 KCR-40 warships manufactured in Batam by PT Palindo Marine will be equipped with the missiles. "The contract had been signed, the missiles are expected to arrive in 2014," First Admiral Untung Suropati, Chief of Information Center for TNI AL, told Tempo on Monday, January 28. C-705 (China) - Jane's Naval Weapon Systems The C-705 has been developed from the C-701 family by the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC) apparently as a cost efficient solution filling the gap which exists in Chinese surface-to-surface missile systems between the C-704 and the C-802. It was first displayed at the 2008 Zuhai Air Show. Externally it looks like a smaller version of the C-602. It is believed to have a terminal flight altitude of between 5 and 7 m and a 110 kg warhead and appears to be designed for use against vessels in excess of 1,500 tons by small patrol vessels in the 50 to 500 ton range. Indeed, it has been linked with the Houbei (Type 022) class of Fast Attack Craft (FAC). There would seem to be export opportunities in the middle east and Latin America for use in the littorals. A land-launched coastal defence version of the air-launched C-704 is currently being marketed with four single launchers carried on a 4 Ã— 4 vehicle. An air-launched version (C-705D) also exists.
