New technology to hit surface and land targets is being developed by a Russian company, and will allow rogue nations like Iran to purchase cruise missiles built into standard 40' shipping containers. The containers can travel by 18-wheelers, rail and sea. See an excellent video below, showing clearly what these missiles can do.

This weapon is clearly intended for anti-American countries or individuals. In the video below you'll see how Iran, Syria and Palestine might even the playing field with the Club-K Container Missile Program. How about Yemen? How about al-Qaeda?
Priced at an estimated £10 million, each container is fitted with four cruise anti-ship or land attack missiles. The system represents an affordable "strategic level weapon"...FrontPage Magazine: A Game Changing Weapon:
"This is ballistic missile proliferation on a scale we have not seen before because now you cannot readily identify what's being used as a launcher because it's very carefully disguised.
"Someone could sail off your shore looking innocuous then the next minute big explosions are going off at your military installations."
The Russian company Concern Morinformsystem-Agat is marketing a deadly new weapon, one that can allow a rogue state to overcome the technological superiority of Western militaries. The system can even be used to carry out devastating attacks on the U.S. homeland with little means of defense...
In addition, these vehicles can cross borders, making it more difficult to identify the perpetrator of an attack and impossible to predict where an attack might come from. The missiles might from a shipping vessel off the coast or a truck that crossed via the Mexican border. With a range of 220 kilometers, or about 136 miles, they can either be fired from a safe distance from the border or the distance can be minimized by getting close to the target by being hidden.
