I think the Yakhont/Brahmos family is a great set of missiles.

China's Yakont/Brahmos -- the CX-1 -- was sold to Algeria and possibly Morocco too.

The CX-1 is 6600lbs and 28 feet long -- about the same size and weight as Yakhont and Brahmos.

But the PLAN uses mainly the YJ-12 which is around 4500lbs and 21 feet long.

Both are up to MACH 4 with latest variants.

The PLAN's Sovremennys are being upgraded to YJ-12 from Sunburn.

I just learned the type 52D destroyer is actually called the Kunming class. Luyang III is just the NATO designation. If NATO is going to use a Chinese word to denote the vessel class why not us China's designation? So strange.

Wonder what the Chinese actually call their various ship classes. Wonder even more why NATO renames them. Kind of like meeting somebody, they say, "Hi my name is Jim." NATO replies, "Hello, I will call you Bert." WTF?

Newer variants of the BrahMos like the BrahMos ER can go upto Mach 4.

The BrahMos is guided by an active radar homing system or by satellite, and it has an inertial navigation system for midcourse guidance. The missile’s punch comes in the form of a 200-kilogram (440-pound) warhead.

It is propelled by a solid-fuel first booster stage and a liquid-fuel ramjet second stage, propelling the missile to speeds around Mach 4, or four times the speed of sound.

The export variant has a range of 290 kilometers (180 miles). That range is downrated to comply with international agreements, but would still be sufficient for the Philippines to provide cover for some of its holdings in the disputed South China Sea.

That is better than what they named the JH-7 Flying Leopard: NATO code name is Flounder.

brahmos derives its base design from P800 but its capabilities , maneuverability and ECCM capabilities are more advanced than p800
P800 Oniks and Yakhont are the Same Missiles. In the Export Market, the P800 is designated as Yakhont. the Yakhont is limited by international treaties to have a range limit of 300km, but Onyx has no such limits and is probably longer ranged and with a heavier warhead.

NATO reporting names are actually code names for military equipment from countries like Russia, China, and historically, the Eastern Bloc. NATO does give some really good names for Weopons like :
  • Tupolev TU-22M3 (NATO Reporting Name : Backfire)
  • Tupolov TU-160 (NATO Reporting Name : Blackjack)
  • MIG-25 (NATO Reporting Name : Foxbat)
Etc. Other than that, all other names are pretty much Shitty.

These older ships including the Russian Sovremennys were or are being refitted with new systems such as VLS!


Sovremenny Hangzhou (136) now has Mach 4 YJ-12 AShMs, 32-cell UVLS for HQ-16, YU-8 and HHQ-10 point defense!

@SexyChineseLady already beat me to it on the Chinese Military Updates Thread, but thought to have it on this thread for posterity.

Rumoured antiship ballistic missile on the Type 055 has materialized. Was expecting this weapons system to show up on one of the PLAN'test ships first, but active warship integration has already occurred.

YJ20/21(?) ASBM successfully integrated onto the type 055 Destroyer:

Ignore the Type 055 in front. Up to six destroyers (055 or 052DL) are being assembled in the giant drydock to its left!

how many destroyers and frigates are you guys building !
‘Third rate Chinese Navy destroyers hastily built on copied and reverse engineered technology are no match to Indian ships. Numbers do not matter only quality matters.

It's not very good to underestimate Chinese Destroyers like that, the best Destroyer class present in Chinese inventory is the Type 55 class. The best and most advanced Destroyer class in India is the Visakhapatnam class.

Type 55 has a Displacement of 12-13,000 tonnes (full load). On the other hand our Visakhapatnam class has a Displacement of 7,400 t (7,300 long tons; 8,200 short tons). Also the Type-55 has superior armament to the Visakhapatnam class.

And please remember these words : "quantity has its own quality". It's a fact that Chinese Destroyers are way Superior to our Destroyers.

nope , don't give false statements sir. Please do some technical research before making such comments .
The way they are building and along with that they are refitted older destroyers with new advanced weapons and sensors is completely mind-boggling 👌 🔥 👏
I think till next decade Chinese Navy will have ships equal to navy ships of all other countries in the world

Yep , you're right there . Type 055 outclasses anything we have . Our DDGs have 48 cell VLS . A single type 055 has 128 Cell VLS
