Yj-62 Anti-ship Cruise Missile

YJ-62 ANTI-SHIP CRUISE MISSILE:

The YingJi-62 (YJ-62) is a long-range subsonic anti-ship cruise missile (ASCM) developed by China Haiying Electro-Mechanical Technology Academy (CHETA, also known as 3rd Aerospace Academy). The missile was first spotted onboard the Type 052C (Lanzhou class) destroyers commissioned in 2004. The 280km-range missile may also form the basis for a longer-range land attack cruise missile (LACM) family for the PLA.
PROGRAMME
A new type of anti-ship missile launchers was first spotted onboard the PLA Navy’s Type 052C (Lanzhou class) destroyer in early 2004. Unlike the PLA Navy’s existing YJ-8 series anti-ship missiles, which are launched from a box-shape launcher, the new missile employs a cylinder-shape launcher similar to those found on the U.S. Harpoon and French Exocet missile systems. An Internet source photo published later suggested that the new missile was the PLA Navy’s latest YJ-62 long-range ASCM, which features a maximum range of 280km and INS/GPS + active radar guidance.
Despite carrying the development variant designation of the YingJi-6 (YJ-6, also known as C-601 in its export name, NATO codename: CAS-1 Kraken) anti-ship missile family, which was developed from the 1950s-era Soviet SS-N-2 Styx missile, the new YJ-62 missile bears little resemblance to the YJ-6. The missile body of the YJ-62 appears to be much slimmer and lighter, and clearly a far more modern design than the YJ-6.
China National Precision Machinery Import and Export Corporation (CPMIEC), a window company for the Chinese defence industry, published some details on the new YJ-62 anti-ship missile during the Defence Systems & Equipment International (DSEI) land and naval systems exhibition held in London during 13~16 September 2005. CPMIEC claimed that the YJ-62 is fitted with a frequency agile radar seeker, giving the missile much greater resistance to jamming compared to the mono-pulse radar seekers fitted on previous Chinese indigenous anti-ship missiles.
The YJ-62 ASCM outperforms most Western and Russian anti-ship missiles in terms of range and warhead mass, thought it is not clear whether the missile possesses the same accuracy and anti-jamming capability. Nevertheless, it demonstrates China’s capability to design and develop a world-class advanced anti-ship missile. As well as being able to attack surface ships, the YJ-62 fitted with an alternative guidance system may also be capable of attacking land targets, giving its carrier ship the long-range, stand-off precision strike capability.
MISSILE
The YJ-62 is a conventional cruise missile design, with mid-body wings which deploy following launch. The engine inlet is mounted slightly forward of the cruciform tail fins. The missile is 6.1m long, without the 0.9m launch booster, and weights 1,140kg. The solid propellant booster weighs an additional 210kg. The missile is powered by a small turbojet or turbofan engine.
It is claimed that the YJ-62 uses strap-down inertial guidance coupled with GPS, and active radar for the terminal phase. The missile has a stated range of 280km, with the missile flying at an altitude of 30m during the cruise phase of an engagement. In the terminal phase, the missile descends 7~10m. The active radar seeker has an acquisition range of up to 40km.

what is the point in acquiring this missile when you are developing the babar missile?

kashif too many weapon systems of similiar capabilities add to the inventory problems,babar with its longer range will give pakistani navy more benefits than this chinese missile.

Sorry i forgot i forgot that its a cruise missile if it was simply an anti-ship missile then it could have worked out and also cruise missile are expensive to manufacture and to handle

Re: Yj-62 Anti-ship Cruise Missile

cruise missiles are actually much cheaper and more accurate than ballistic missiles,besides they have features like(most modern cruise missiles) warhead release capability,overflight capability and target damage assessment capabilities which i dont think the ballistic missiles have.

that is the main reason why cruise missiles are used more extensively than the ballistic missiles.

besides cruise missiles can be easily modified for launch fron any ship,submarine ,aircarft or land based launcher as compared to the ballistic missiles.

Re: Yj-62 Anti-ship Cruise Missile

huh?

When did barbur become anti-ship cruise missile?

What give you the idea that Barbur is a better missile than YJ-62?

What gives you the idea it isn't?
The Pakistani Navy did say something about designing the Babur for AShM purposes.

You can add modify a missile, add guidance and such to make it an AShM, but it's range will no longer be known. You don't think the PN can make a better AShM at first try than a 3rd generation AShM of PLAN, do you?

Exclamation Re: Yj-62 Anti-ship Cruise Missile

You know the Russian, Indian and Chinese development of ASCM is impressive. It makes me think its about time the West started to re-invest in a new generation of advanced hyper-sonic ASCM. The only new western ASCM is the Norwegian system that really is a multi function subsonic CM with IIR seeker. The Exocet 3 is an advancement on the basic Exocet concept, better range, seeker.

Thoughts please !!

i remember reading in a couple of forums that usa is involved in developing a conceptual hypersonic multipurpose strike missile known as the hystrike which is to have a speed of m5(around 6000kms/hr)

A stealthy, multi-purpose, very-low altitude sub-sonic skimmer with multiple-launch options, multiple seeker modes, capable of high-G evasive manuevers, and providing real-time intel/BDA, as well as being retargetable in-flight and equipped with penetration aids/countermeasures, and a smart-fused advanced warhead would be just as effective as any mach-6 weapon.

What's more, the weapon I just decribed is for the most part already in service with several Western nations, or could be produced in short order with current, state of the art, off the shelf technologies.

What is most important in weapon design is the cost per weapon vs. damage effect ratio.

A mach-6, sub-orbital capable missile is great- if it is large, and robust enough to be sufficiently equipped with sensors and a warhead to allow it to find and severely damage/destroy the target. At the moment, hypersonic missiles are being developed to attack stationary time-critical targets, like bunkers and WMD stockpiles- not moving tactical targets like ships, or tanks.

The R&D cost of hypersonic missiles is enormous already, and rapidly growing. Due to the high-technologies involved, it may be a decade or more before the first generation weapons are ready for deployment.

Alternatively, advanced Western ASCM's with many of the capabilites I mentioned above are already in service.
For instance, the JASSM is a highly effective air-launched cruise missile, capable of delivering a 1000lb. warhead, against a variety of stationary, and moving tactical targets with GPS precision. And due to it's stealthy design, and NOE flight profile- its virtually impossible to detect.

Though the TACTOM isn't as stealthy as the JASSM, it can do most everything else, possessing very long range, the abiltiy to be re-targeted in-flight, provide real-time BDA, and has a warhead sufficiently capable of destroying most ships with a single hit.

On the surface, the Titan/ONR Affordable Weapon appears to be just a cheap Tomahawk knockoff built from off the shelf components, with roughly half the capabilities of the RGM-109. But it also costs a fraction of the price of a current production unit RGM-109, and equipped with a GPS guidance package- it still has the ability to deliver a Harpoon-class warhead to a target from far beyond stand-off range, with near-precision accuracy. It's very low cost means that dozens, or even hundreds of these missiles could be launched against any warship, virtually ensuring the target's defenses are overwhelmed- either destroyng the ship, or leaving it as nothing more more than a helpless, burning wreck.

The GBU-39 SDB with the swing-wing kit, is a very capable, and quite affordable strike weapon, which could attack ships from stand-off range, and cause severe damage with it's hard target penetration capability. It's very small size, high speed, and passive-guidance package would make it almost impossible to defend against- particularly so if it's launched in large numbers from a small number of stealthy aircraft.

Finally, the LOCAAS weapon system is quite near the completion of it's R&D track and offers some very interesting capabilities. They are small, very stealthy, possess a 200 km. stand off range, and a 200 kt. cruise speed. Equipped with an LADAR seeker, and an advanced guidance system, they are completely autonomous, and can be targeted against all manner of moving and stationary tactical targets- including ships, tanks, SCUD launchers, and SAM sites. They can even be retargeted in-flight through a man-in-the-loop datalink. Whats more, the weapon is also quite affordable, and can be carried in very large numbers- as many as 24 on a single Superhornet, and each carries an advanced, multi-mode warhead. A single plane-load of LOCAAS tactical missiles may not sink a large Chinese, or Russian missile cruiser, but they would likely cause suffcient damage to it's exposed weapon mounts, sensors, counter-measures and communication systems to effectively render it a mission kill, and little more than a liability to it's escort shps. All from a weapon about the size and cost of a Hellfire ATGM.

What's probably just as important, is using the best ( and most affordable ) weapon, for the job. You don't want to launch a Harpoon ASM at a torpedo boat, if you can take out the same threat with a Hellfire. And you don't want to launch two dozen multi-milion dollar Tomahawks at a SA-12 site, if you can destroy it from stand-off range with a couple JSOW's. What is most effective, is the use of low-cost decoys like the air-launched ADM-141C ITALD, and the new MALD systems, when used in conjuction with more capable ( and vastly more expensive ) strike weapons. The LOCAAS, and the Affordable Weapon are just as effective as decoys, as they are as strike weapon systems. If the enemy doesn't attack and destroy each incoming weapon with a multi-million dollar SAM, they are risking the loss of the entire SAM system, and whatever that system was protecting. The lovely bit of irony is, a world-beater SAM like the SA-12B could cost an order of magnitude more than the cost the weapons it must defend against, and just one LOCAAS, SDB, or Affordable Weapon could render the entire system inoperable, if the SAM system's radar or control center itself is destroyed.

The Gladiator may be among the best SAM systems in the world, but it is almost helpless against a single plane's load of LOCAAS missiles programmed to find and destroy it's radar antenna.
