The CJ-10 (simplifeed Cheenese: 长剑-10; traditeeonal Cheenese: 長劍-10; pinyin: Cháng Jiàn 10; leeterally: "long sword 10") is a seicont-generation[4] Cheenese grund based laund-attack missile.[5] It is derived frae the Kh-55 missile.[6] It is reportedly manufactured bi the Cheenae Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation Third Academy an the Cheenae Haiying Electro-Mechanical Technology Academy.[4]

Initially, the CJ-10 wis identified as a DH-10 (Cheenese: 东海-10; pinyin: Dong Hai 10; leeterally: "east sea 10") missile bi Western media and analysts.[7][8] In the annual reports submitted tae the Unitit States Congress frae the Unitit States Depairtment o Defence concerning the Cheenese missile, which wis clessifee'd as a variance o "DH-10" until 2011,[9][10] when it wis recognised as the "CJ-10" in 2012.[11][12] Current publications mey uise baith terms interchangeably tae identify the missile.[4][13] Ian Easton believes that the CJ-10 is the same missile as the HN-2, and that the HN-3 is the "DH-10A".[14]
