Analyst in China says YJ-12 and YJ-100 have very powerful anti-ship cruise missile, about 400-500 kilograms, and one missile could paralyze a 10,000-ton warship.

These two missiles are called anti-ship duo of China. YJ-12 features high speed, mach 3 for range of 300 kilometers and mach 4 for 400 kilometers. It can lower its height in the final stage for stealthy penetration.
