Chinese missile warheads found on ship en-route to Cuba

9:37:00 PM
BOGOTA, -- Colombian authorities found a total of 99 Chinese-built missile warheads of unspecified type on 3 March during an inspection of Chinese-flagged merchant vessel Da Dan Xiu at Cartagena.

These were due to be delivered to Cuba.

The warheads may have been intended for use in a Cuban programme to develop modernised self-propelled versions of the Soviet-era S-75 Dvina (SA-2 'Guideline') and S-125 Neva (SA-3 'Goa') surface-to-air missile systems.

The S-75 Dvina (SA-2 Guideline) Soviet-designed, high-altitude air defense system, built around a surface-to-air missile with command guidance.
