    China has had a long running program aimed at developing land attack cruise missiles suitable for aerial, sub and ship deployment. Reports abound claiming the PRC has actively shopped the Middle East for debris from expended or failed Tomahawk rounds. More recently reports have emerged claiming China has purchased tooling for the Raduga Kh-65SE, the reduced range export variant of the Kh-55 (AS-15 Kent) which is Russia's answer to the Boeing AGM-86B ALCM.

    Many sources claim that the PLA now operates the indigenous HN-1 (320 NMI/600 km), HN-2 (800+ NMI/1,500+ km) and the HN-3 (1,350 NMI/2,500 km). The sole good quality image to emerge suggests these weapons are clones of the BGM-109 Tomahawk, suitable for naval and aerial launch. The DH-10 cruise missile, declared operational, also resembles a Tomahawk.

    H-6H Badgers, there is no shortage of launch platforms. The recently unveiled H-6H variant with four wing pylons is clearly intended for such a role. The Air lauched varient is call CJ-10A with a operational range is 2,200km with a speed of Mach 2.5+..


    Operational range:2,200km
    Speed: Mach 2.5+
    Accuracy: 5m

    PS. The Missile is better than Brahmos ALCM, In both speed and range, but lack multi-platforms, Only H6 bomber can carry these ALCM..

    Hmm

    I am wondering, after having such missiles in their inventory, why did China develop cm 400 akg, which is much behind when compared to cruise missiles.

    Chinese members?

    I think credit goes to Pakistan because six Tomahawk Cruise missiles crash-landed inside Pakistani territory during 1998 US airstrikes in Afghanistan. These may have gone to China.
