(Worthy News) - China is building a long-range cruise missile fired from a shipping container that could turn Beijing's large fleet of freighters into potential warship and commercial ports into future missile bases.
The new missile is in flight testing and is a land-attack variant of an advanced anti-ship missile called the YJ-18C, according to American defense officials.
The missile will be deployed in launchers that appear from the outside to be standard international shipping containers used throughout the world for moving millions of tons of goods, often on the deck of large freighters. [ Source: Washington Free Beacon (Read More...) ]
