    C-802 the best anti-ship ever made

    Not NSM, LRASM, Harpoon Block II, P800, Brahmos, Exocet Block III, C-802 (export version) missiles of the YJ-8/82 missile series are rockets with best combat performance. Its victims include both NATO and Jewish warships

    The Houthi rebels have rapidly gained momentum, averaging an attack or a missile strike nearly every week in 2018. This increase in action started in October 2016, when Houthi rebels launched numerous anti-ship cruise missiles at a catamaran vessel carrying wounded Yemeni and other passengers operating off the coast of Yemen. The attack ultimately pronounced an act of terrorism by the United Nations. Just a few days later a military ship from the United Arab Emirates, a coalition member-state, was attacked in its passage to the port of Mokha in the Red Sea by Houthi missiles. The vessel was severely damaged.



    The conflict escalated further after an attempted Houthi attack on a U.S. Navy ship, the USS Mason. Intelligence sources confirmed after the attack that the missiles fired on the ship on October 9, 2016 were guided anti-ship C-802s, of Chinese descent. Houthi possession of this missile system at the time was unknown, and with a warhead designed to penetrate hulls and disperse shrapnel the Houthis demonstrated a newfound ability to target and attempt to destroy naval ships. However, the USS Mason was an Arleigh-Burke guided missile destroyer and effectively defused the attack using Standard Missile-2 and Evolved Sea Sparrow missile interceptors. The Houthis continued attempting to attack the Mason for the remainder of October 2016 but were deterred each time. Despite this failure, the Houthis proved themselves to be a formidable force through their possession of such powerful missile systems.

          USS Mason Fired 3 Missiles to Defend From Yemen Cruise Missiles Attack

          The crew of a guided-missile destroyer fired three missiles to defend themselves and another ship after being attacked on Sunday in the Red Sea by two presumed cruise missiles fired by Iran-backed Houthi-forces, USNI News has learned.

          During the attack against USS Mason (DDG-87), the ships crew fired the missiles to defend the guided-missile destroyer and nearby USS Ponce (AFSB(I)-15) from two suspected cruise missiles fired from the Yemini shore, two defense officials told USNI News.

          Mason launched two Standard Missile-2s (SM-2s) and a single Evolved Seasparrow Missile (ESSM) to intercept the two missiles that were launched about 7 P.M. local time.

          While U.S. sources havent confirmed the type of missiles, open source naval analyst and retired Navy Capt. Chris Carlson told USNI News on Monday the damage on Swift appears to be from the warhead used in a Chinese-built C-802 anti-ship missile (NATO reporting name CSS-N-8 Saccade). The C-802 is based on Cold War-era French technology.

            So how did the rebels get hold of them? There's no record of official sales to the Yemeni government pre-civil war.

              Sorry, the C-802 is hardly a State of the Art Anti-Ship Missile. As a matter of fact most Naval Anti-Air Defense System are adequate to defeat it....
