Developed from the C-802 Anti-ship missile, the upgraded C802A missile is a subsonic, low-altitide sea-skimmer, featuring way point planning, on-off-on radar operation and multiple target selection. It can be used against maritime and fixed ground targets.
The C-802 family of missiles is targeted at medium-range attack, supplemented by the C-602 family for long-range attack and the C-701 family for short-range attack.
The base C-802 missile has been developed further into variants capable of precision surface strike by replacing the original active radar seeker with a different seeker such as television. The CM-802AKG is a one such variant reported earlier.
