Photos of Iranian Mi-171 helicopter with version of the Chinese C-802 missiles


Iranian Mi-171  helicopter with ‘Noor’ anti ship cruise missiles (licensed version of the Chinese C-802).

The C-802 is the export upgraded version of the Chinese anti-ship missile YJ-8 , first unveiled in 1989 by the China Haiying Electro-Mechanical Technology Academy (CHETA), also known as the Third Academy.

Due to the Yingji-82 missile’s small radar reflectivity, low attack flight path (only five to seven meters above the sea surface) and strong anti-jamming capability of its guidance system, target ships have a very small chance of intercepting the missile.
