How are missiles launched from ships?

A vertical launching system (VLS) is an advanced system for holding and firing missiles on mobile naval platforms, such as surface ships and submarines. When the command is given, the missile flies straight up long enough to clear the cell and the ship, and then turns on course.

How are cruise missiles launched?

Cruise missiles tend to be propelled by jet engine, with turbofan engines in particular being preferred due to their greater efficiency at low altitude and subsonic speed.

What is a DH-10 missile?

The DH-10 is a land-attack cruise missile (LACM) that can reach subsonic speeds and travel up to 2,000km with a payload of 500 kg. [1] The DH-10 is carried by and launched from a transporter-erector-launcher (TEL) vehicle that carries three canisters or a ship based platform such as the Type 052D guided missile destroyer.

Is the DH-10/CJ-10 an anti-shipping cruise missile?

The same technology can used to develop a suitable turbofan engine for the cruise missile. The DH-10 / CJ-10 has a superficial family resemblance to the YJ-62 / C-602 Anti-Shipping Cruise Missile [ASCM], but there are important differences. The YJ-62 cruise missile is a PLAN analog to the anti-shipping variants of the RGM-109 Tomahawk/MRASM.
