Spotted: China flies air-launched cruise missile

The US has the AGM-86, Russia has the KH-55 and China now has the CJ-10K.

The Chinese Military Aviation blog (.cn domain) on Saturday posted the above photo of the CJ-10K aloft under the wing of an H-6 bomber. The blog says the missile's range is between 1,500km and 2,500km.

The photo appears after China unveiled the ground-launched CJ-10 land attack cruise missile in the October 1 parade marking the 60th anniversary of the People's Liberation Army Air Force. The weapon is reportedly intended for attacks on a carrier battle group.
