As I like to say off the net, "believe what you want to believe and let your mind sorrow StealthSpy".
Helicopter tech? China had always co-operated with Eurocopter over China's own designs, your point is?
If France sold China ANF designs then wouldn't China be the one thats lagging behind in the development with the new missile? China certainly is not when you compare the YJ-12s developement and the ANFs development, ANF states that it wishes to enter service in 2010 while YJ-12 is already in service on two destroyers with unknown induction dates on the air launched, TEL based and sub based versions (they might've already entered service or they might not, there is not enough information to discuss this).

Some forums say that France secretly sold their own missile and YJ-12 is its chinese designation. France have speculatively sold some Helicopter tech too to China.
And the YJ-12 is not as good as the BrahMos anti-ship missile IMO.
