World Tribune.com -- Report: Missiles developed by China 'identical' to Iran's
LONDON – China is marketing missiles it earlier designed for Iran.
China's Hongdu Aviation Industry Group has exhibited three variants of two new guided missiles that were designed and developed for Iran, the London-based Jane's Defence Weekly reported.
The United States has expressed concern over Chinese missile and nuclear exports to Iran. In January, the Bush administration imposed sanctions against eight Chinese companies for helping Iran with its missile programs.
China has become a leading supplier of missile systems and technology for Iran. Iran has claimed several Chinese missiles as its own, including the C-701 anti-ship missile.
The anti-ship missiles, displayed at the China Air Show 2004 in November 2004, were identified as the JJ/TL-6B, JJ/TL-10A and KJ/TL-10B.
Industry sources said the Chinese missiles are identical to Iran's Nasr and Kosar, also known as the TL-6 and TL-10. The TL-10 and C-701 missiles were said to be part of Iran's Kosar program, Middle East Newsline reported.
