    The Diplomat reports the new Chinese sub-launched CM-708UNB ASCM (ie. anti-ship cruise missile) can be fired beyond the range of most anti-submarine warfare systems.

    The original source of information is IHS Jane's. Please note IHS Jane's made a typographical error in reporting on the CM-708UNB. The correct flight speed is 0.8 to 0.9 Mach. IHS Jane's had put the decimal in the wrong place in its article.

    "[The CM-708UNB ASCM] is armed with a 155 kg warhead and in its terminal phase flies 5-7 m above the water."
