    The Indonesian Navy has decided to install C 705 missiles, which will be jointly produced by Indonesia and China, in its fast missile boats, an official says.

    “Sastind will provide the technology,” Defense Ministry secretary-general Vice Marshal Eris Haryanto said on Monday as quoted by kompas.com.

    Sastind is a China-based defense industry started cooperation with the Directorate General of Defense Capabilities on March 22.

    Eris said that the C 705 missiles could reach a range of 110 to 120 kilometers and were for surface targets.

    Currently, the Defense Ministry is working on a technology transfer plan, as well as discussing the 2014 target to implement the 1,000 missiles RHan 122 program, which is also related to the technology.

    C-705

    At the 7th Zhuhai Airshow, another member of the C-70X series is shown to the public. Designated as the C-705, the missile is a direct development of the C-704, yet externally, the new C-705 missile resembles a miniaturized C-602. Major improvements concentrated in three areas: engine, warhead and guidance. The original rocket engine of the C-704 was replaced with a larger one, increasing the range to 75 km. Developers claimed that the modular design of the new engine had the option to provide a second stage to further increase the range to 170 km, but the second stage was not shown at the airshow.

    The warhead is reduced to 110 kg, but the adaption of HVTD-H high explosive directional warhead enabled the missile to effectively neutralize targets size up to 1,500 tons. Several seekers has already been developed for the C-705, including radar, TV and IR. For mid-course guidance, GPS or GLONASS are used, though the sample shown at the 2008 airshow is only compatible with GPS due to export purpose. Developer claimed that domestic Chinese satellite navigational can also be used.

    Specifications:

    Warhead: 110 kg
    Range: 75 km, 170 km with 2nd stage added
    Engine: solid rocket
    Seeker: radar, TV, or IR
    Cruise altitude: 12.15 meter (lowest)
    Target size: ships up to 1,500 tons
    Launching platform: aircraft, surface vessels, and land vehicles
    Kill probability: > 95.7%
