Is CJ-10 the Chinese name for DH-10?[edit]

I'm a bit unsure here. DH-10 is the rumored Chinese cruise missile by US intelligence, CJ-10 is the new smoking gun in the parade, are those the same thing? Jim101 (talk) 14:32, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Regardless, CJ-10 is the official name as per CCTV-1. If they are not the same thing, then good, but if they are, I'm afraid that the DH-10 article is the one that's got to go (outdated, speculative information for a start, that isn't entirely confirmed by the PRC but rather projections by external outlets, plus the incorrect name). -- 李博杰  | Talk contribs email 01:14, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
Edit: The DH-10 article is almost entirely based on one source, SinoDefence, which specifically reads: "Designations of current development projects reportedly include ChangFeng (CF), HongNiao (HN), and DongHai" - note the bold. Also note that these refer to development projects, not missiles. Prior to the release of the Wii, it was known as Nintendo Revolution. Much of the article is also a direct copyvio of [1] (Last updated 7 May 2007, almost eternity in comparison to the span of a development project). The DefenseLink footnote given only speculates on a new cruise missile system, and do not refer to the name DF-10 specifically. -- 李博杰  | Talk contribs email 01:16, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
Regardless, DH-10 name has been used by Jane's and Pentagon white papers for a long time as THE LACM used by PLA. The only way to close this issue is to pick up the newest version of the Pentagon white paper on Chinese military power. Jim101 (talk) 02:17, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
We might have to wait a bit, since this new missile has only been released to the public very recently. -- 李博杰  | Talk contribs email 11:54, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

We might have a major screw up here...[edit]

According the some knowledgeable sources, the naval three tube launcher are one of the YJ-91/62 missile, not the CJ-10 missile. Jim101 (talk) 23:15, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

I did more digging and compared the launch tubes, and indeed the naval round tube is the YJ-62 missile, while the square tube is the CJ-10. Jim101 (talk) 23:25, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads-up. -- 李博杰  | Talk contribs email 23:26, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
Now I feel guilty on doping some Taiwan and Hong Kong tabloids to believe the CJ-10 is a sliver bullet against the US carriers... Jim101 (talk) 23:32, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
I was the one who added the 2 RS. The PLA has never counted the CJ10 = sliver bullet vs the carrier group, they are too small in volume to make any big difference. It's just 1 of the many options that the PLA has looked into. To the best of my knowledge, CJ10 has never been fully tested, so as the majority of PLA's ICBM, IRBM arsenals. Any medium + range bomber carried Anti-ship missile would pose a much greater thread than CJ10 right now. And finally, TW & HK tabloids love to hype, it’s their job.

Guidance[edit]

It cannot be stellar update, because it could only be used on nights whith clear sky when the system can see the stars, unhindered by clouds. Stellar update is used for ballistic missiles because they fly out of the atmosphere where the stars are always visible, but a cruise missile never gets out of the atmosphere.--Arado (talk) 10:55, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
