Russian company selling cruise missile in a shipping box
London: A Russian company’s decision to market a cruise missile that can be launched from a shipping container, has led defence experts to warn of a new danger of ballistic weapons proliferation.
It is feared that the covert Club-K missile attack system could prove "game-changing" in fighting wars with small countries, which would gain a remote capacity to mount multiple missiles on boats, trucks or railways.
According to The Telegraph, Iran and Venezuela have already shown an interest in the Club-K Container Missile System.
Defence experts say the system is designed to be concealed as a standard 40 foot shipping container that cannot be identified until it is activated.
Priced at an estimated GBP 10 million, each container is fitted with four cruise anti-ship or land attack missiles. The system represents an affordable "strategic level weapon".
Club-K is being marketed at the Defence Services Asia exhibition in Malaysia this week.
Novator, the manufacturer, is an advanced missile specialist that would not have marketed the system without Moscow`s approval. It has released an emotive marketing film complete with dramatic background music.
