the C-801 is a indegenious missle.


The YJ-8 (C-801) (Ying Ji = Eagle Strike) is China's second generation indigenously developed anti-ship missile. Originally developed in response to the PLA's need for small-scale air-launched anti-ship missile in the late 1970s, the YJ-8 was later developed into a missile family comprising variants to be launched from sea, air, land, and underwater.

chinawhite, do you realise that the photo you have posted above shows a pair of Sea Eagles under an RAF Tornado?

At first I thought it was a photo of the chinese missile you were describing and I was about to post 'HA, DEFINITE COPY!'

chinawhite, i am not so sure about the YJ-8 buddy.

I'll tell you why :


....the YJ-8 was reported to be related to the French Exocet....nearly identical length and diamete.... and in fact the triple control surfaces of the YJ-8 are rather similar to those found on the U.S. Navy Harpoon missile.

from the same link you quoted in your first post in this page (that i posted on the previous page)

now isi'nt it ironical that China got the Exocet's from France in the 80's (before tianamin tragedy) and also the fact the Pakistan was and is in posession both the Harpoon and the Exocet ???

and it is common knodwledge that Pakistan and China are arms partners and often share technology...like Pakistan gave an F-16 to china to r.e (but in vain) in return for M-11 short range misslie know how.....and China is pakistan's largest defence supplier and how the pakistani nuke bomb is based on a chinese design...and how they both collaborated to make the FC-1 from the Mig's project-33 with russian engines and russian help, etc, etc .....

so somewhere down the line dont you feel that a pakistan that is capable of lending china an F-16 to try and reverse engineer, also gave a few harpoon and exocet's too (that it has much more than F-16's and is far less a thing to give than an F-16) and china r.e'd it to make the YJ-8 ..... and further so because reputed sources FAS and China Defence Today (links to specific articles in perv. page) also point in the same direction ???

Your views ???

look at the picture of the missile under the wing of the J-7 - is it me or is there an air intake??
- exorcet`s are rocket missiles - sea eagle uses a turbojet (and thus needs an air intake)

www.fas.org...

www.vectorsite.net...

more info on both sea eagle and exorcet

what is intersting is the `block 3` MM40 - it is reported to use a turbojet engine

That is a surprisingly difficult question for me to answer, 'how' indeed? It must be my great familiarity with all types of RAF aircraft ever used. I am 100% certain that is a Tornado carrying Sea Eagles.

Chinawhite, its not that I thought you didn't know but you posted some info about the chinese missile and then posted this photo without a single word of explanation. How is anyone supposed to know what you intended to show?

Here is a picture I've found that you can compare Daedalus, look at the fuselage mid section where the pylons are and the way it tapers in towards the front of the pylon. A distinctive Tornado feature. Also not how the missile is on a pylon attached to another pylon, just the same as in the photo that chinawhaite posted. I Just knew it was a Tornado straight away
