SSM-700K Haeseong (C-Star)

South Korea, in its policy of developing its indigenous weapons systems, commissioned the Agency for Defense Development to study a long-range anti-ship missile with high resistance to electronic countermeasures. In 1996 the project began, and after seven years of research, in 2003 the SSM-700K Haeseong (C-Star) missile was introduced. The missile has a microwave search system, an SS-760K Turbofan Engine, an electronic jamming system and an inertial navigation system. The inertial guidance system directs the flight of the missile but in the final stage the active radar homing system comes into action to ensure the impact. In 2005 the first missiles were put into service in the KDX-II and KDX-III class destroyers of the ROK Navy.
