According to a congressional defense analyst, China is trying to acquire, and may well already possess, submarine-launched, supersonic land-attack cruise missiles -- weapons which, when deployed by Chinese navy submarines, could shower U.S. coastal cities with nuclear-tipped stealth missiles in a surprise attack that may not be detected until the first bombs are detonated.

The Russian NPO Mashinostroyenya "Yahont" (NATO SS-N-26) missile "was put on sale in August during a Russian air show," said Richard D. Fisher, a defense analyst working for Rep. Chris Cox, R-Calif. Fisher, who attended the air show in Moscow, told WorldNetDaily that the Russians openly bragged about having sold the weapon system to a major world power. Both Fisher and Aviation Week and Space Technology confirm that China was by far the most likely customer.

The new Chinese navy missile is intended to fly at very low altitude to defeat radar detection, and strike its target at supersonic speed. No Western nation currently has such a weapon. In fact, the only similar weapon, an underwater version of the nuclear-armed U.S. Tomahawk cruise missile, has been withdrawn from service.
