Taiwan’s National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology (NCSIST) test-fired its new Yun Feng (Cloud Peak) long-range land-attack attack cruise missile (LACM) on 15 April.

The latest test of the missile system, which has a reported range of between 1,500 and 2,000 km, were carried out by the NCSIST at the Jiupeng Base in Pingtung, southern Taiwan.

The missile is fitted with a ramjet engine and carries a semi-armour-piercing, high-explosive blast fragmentation warhead. It features a solid rocket booster and can reportedly reach speeds of Mach 3 or about 3,704 km/h.

Local media outlets in Taiwan reported in August 2019 that the NCSIST had begun series-production of the Yun Feng system under the ‘Qilin Project’, which has reportedly been given USD390 million to produce at least 20 of these missiles along with 10 mobile launch platforms.
