Having a hit ratio of 98 per cent does not alone make the C-802 one of the
best anti-ship missiles of the day. The hit ratio depends on weather / sea
state condition, on the opposing ESM / ECM, on the settings that had been
given to the missile before its launch (final altitude, maneuvers, type of
radar search and the like).
OTOMAT Mk1 and MM38 EXOCETS also had a hit ratio higher than 98 per cent
twenty years ago but that was in ideal conditions and no one would tell that
their old-fashioned guidance calculator make them top among today's
Not sure either that the sub-launched version of the C-802 is operational

According to the Jerusalem Post, the ship struck by the ASM was one ofI'm guessing more than one was fired at the target. Also this from
the three Sa'ar 5 ships built at Ingalls in the 1990s.
I understood that these ships were quite capable as AAW ships, fitted
with both a 20-mm CIWS system and the indigenously-designed BARAK SAM
Was someone--the ship's commanding and/or tactical warfare
officer--asleep at the switch when the C-802 ASM got past all the AAW
defenses and slammed into the ship?
"The hit probability of the Yingji-802 is estimated to be as high as 98
percent. The Yingji-802 can be launched from airplanes, ships, submarines
and land-based vehicles, and is considered along with the US "Harpoon" as
among the best anti-ship missiles of the present-day world."
Also according to fas.org Iran received 60 of an ordered 150 YJ-802's /
C-802's in 1997.
Are looks deceiving here, or is the C-802 essentially a Chinese version
of SS-N-25 Switchblade?
