Delightful New Russian Missiles Can Be Hidden In Shipping Containers

Oh... great. A Russian company is now marketing a new cruise missile system that can be hidden in a shipping container, turning any merchant ship into a warship able to take out an aircraft carrier. Cool?

So who exactly would be in the market for the Club-K system? No bigs, just countries like Iran and Venezuela. And those countries could go ahead and pass the weapons along to even less savoury characters.

The system still appears to be in the concept phase, with Kontsern-Morinformsistema-Agat gauging interest in the $US20 million system before manufacturing the weapons.

But then again, there's always the chance that the above video is really a viral ad for the next Command & Conquer: Red Alert game. Because that's sure what it looks like. [Reuters]
