PLA Navy Stealth Missile Boats for Attacking Distant Targets

On February 15, 2011, Xinhua reported that a new PLA naval stealth missile boat (type 022) can attack distant targets in the ocean and is a deterrent for enemy boats in the South China Sea. This new speedy stealth missile boat, boasting a powerful firing range (maximum range of 150 km), is equipped with a number of features for covert operations.

Based on this missile boat (type 022), the East China Sea Fleet recently built the very first stealth missile speedboat division for the PLA navy. “Being able to attack with a single boat or a group of boats, (China) can strike at an enemy’s large fleet, which is a powerful deterrent for surrounding hostile fleets in the South China Sea.”
