The C-802 is a subsonic anti-ship crusie missile with a range of 120 km with 190kg of 'high-explosive fragmentation' capacity.

In 2010 Indonesia offered the joint production of missiles, other weapons, and non-military hardware with China. Indonesia's Defense Minister at the time, Purnomo Yusgiantoro, said that the Indonesian navy and air force had been using Chinese made C-802 missiles for a long time and "the need for this missile was increasing". This 'need' was identified even though Indonesia has not been at war with any other nation since the 1960s - unless we count East Timor, Aceh, Maluku and West Papua.
