See also Avaj on the same date. The C-601 was a derivative of the Silkworm, CTX is assuming the main sensor was radar.

LMIU calls this ship Sanandaj. LMIU says both halves salved.

The C-601 has a 513 kg warhead compared to the 165 kg Exocet. When an Exocet hit a VLCC Engine room, usually the only people killed, were those in the ER. The counter was to run the ER un-manned. With the C-601, it appears that this tactic was no longer effective.
