    Pakistan receives 120 Chinese C-602 anti-ship missiles

    U.S. media said that Pakistan has received the 2009 Order of 120 Chinese C-602 anti-ship missiles and deployed warships and coastal artillery. This is in response to the higher cost of India now has a supersonic "BrahMos" missile.

    According to the American Strategy Page website reported on April 23, C-602 is the "Eagle" -62 export subsonic missile with a range of -62 shorter than the "Eagle" (280 km instead of 400 km), in the electronic There are some less obvious differences in means (especially anti-radar) aspects. Both missiles weight is 1.22 tons, with a 300 kg warhead.

    Reported, C-602 is a decades-old another new version of Chinese "Silkworm" anti-ship missiles, and is the longest range version. Guidance inertial navigation system, can generally range missile to the target. After playing on the radar to start, radar can detect possible targets 40 kilometers away, and that the target of 30 km away.

    The report also said that China is giving its newest destroyer equipped C-602, also in the missile for coastal defense forces. Myanmar also ordered some C-602, but it is unclear whether it has received the missiles.

    3.Make use of the Dalai Lama.
    4. Good that Pakistan is buying. Parity with India is a death wish for Pakistan.Allow them the dream & buy/produce more armament.

    1. Sell Brahmos to Vietnam , Philipines and Taiwan.
    2. Get these countries to buy (through Russia) Su-30 Versions that can carry Air launched BrahMos too
    3. Upgrade relationship with Taiwan (and point 2)
    You might also have malaysia interested strongly in Brahmos that it has some Su-30 in their arsenal

    actually sell 300 km range ballistic missiles to all the friendly nations , we already have stock of prithvi missiles that are being used for target practice .

    selling ballistic missile with 1 ton warhead (non nuclear ) would be a strong statement by India to china

    YOU cannot sell them without Russian consent. India only has production rights for Brahmos.

    This C-602A order is a follow up order, we already have them deployed in numbers.

    The production of BhrahMos is a joint one (aka just like JF-17 is between China and Pakistan), and being less than 300 Km in range it is well within MTCR limits. So yes we can sell it to anyone, given that country is not hostile to India or Russia.

    India is a majority stakeholder in Brahmos Aerospace, 50.5%. We can sell to whoever we mutually agree to.

    Russia will have no problems selling to Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines.

    Dude, Russia sells weapons to Vietnam.

    Vietnam’s Russian Restocking

    http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304644104579193433370762464

    Vietnam to buy dozen Sukhoi fighter planes from Russia | Politics | Thanh Nien Daily

    Russia-Vietnam submarine deal worth record $3.2 bln — magazine | Defense | RIA Novosti

    Saying Russia won't sell weapons to Vietnam is like saying China won't sell weapons to Pakistan.

    Vietnam looking to purchase BrahMos cruise missiles

    The only reason why India has yet been unable to export the missiles is because domestic orders have been far too big and deliveries will take time. You can say Brahmos will be allowed export only after the orders for the Indian and possibly the Russian armed forces are met fully.

    The plan is that India and Russia both plan on buying 1000 missiles and jointly export 1000 missiles. But Indian orders alone will end up crossing 1000(for Brahmos-1). IA wants to double their current orders, if that happens, the Brahmos-1s for Indian would exceed 1500. It is possible that we will allow exports for Brahmos-1 around the time when Brahmos-M is ready.
