C-802: Chinese cruise missile similar to the Exocet and marketed for use against naval escort vessels. According to its manufacturer, the China National Precision Instrument Import-Export Corporation, the C-802 is characterized by `mighty attack capability, great firepower.' It has a range of 120 km [75 miles] and a high explosive warhead of 165 kg [363 lbs.].

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Navy: Iran is believed to possess sixty C-802 missiles aboard 15 Chinese and French missile boats.

Land-based Variant: Iran is believed to be acquiring an undetermined number of C-802 missiles which will be mounted on Transporter-Erector-Launchers [TELs]. For over a year Iran has been constructing tunnels and other fortifications along its Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman coastlines which could accommodate these TELs.

Looks like it might be the C-802 coastal defense cruise missile site. Notice the paved area in the northern edge of the pinched waist portion of the base? It looks like there is a large hangar/bunker entrance on the right hand side of the paved area. The L-shaped parking areas, where the mobile C-802 launchers would be parked, have small revetments around them.
