Thai navy performs first C-802A test firing

10th April 2019 - 07:55 GMT | by Sompong Nondhasa in Bangkok


The Royal Thai Navy (RTN) conducted its first C-802A anti-ship missile test on 5 April, successfully hitting a target 100km away from HTMS Kraburi. This achievement made it one of the longest-range missile test of any ASEAN navy.

This test firing was conducted 180km off the coast of Phang Nga Naval Base in the Andaman Sea. The C-802A missile achieved a speed of Mach 0.94.

The objective was to test the long-range capability of the C-802A missile, and to demonstrate the RTN’s firepower.

However, the Indonesian Navy fired a Yakhont missile at a longer range of 250km in 2011.
