In mere months, China will have a ballistic missile completed and ready to strike anywhere in the world. And it can carry up to ten nuclear warheads.
The Dongfeng-41 missile, which is said to have the longest range of any ballistic rockets in the world, has undergone its eighth test and is now near completion, according to state-run media.
Previous reports have claimed that the missile has a range of at least 7,500 miles (12,000km) and could carry up to 10 nuclear warheads – meaning it could strike multiple targets. The new missile also has a speed of more than Mach 10, or ten times the speed of sound (7,672mph) and can use decoy devices to find its way through the enemy’s missile defense systems.
“It can carry up to 10 nuclear warheads, each of which can target separately,” Xu Guangyu, a senior adviser of the China Arms Control and Disarmament Association told Global Times. The missile must have “matured considerably” if it is to be operational in 2018, Guangyu said.
The South China Morning Post reported that China had likely tested the ICBM (Intercontinental ballistic missile) in its Western desert area in early November, but it did not give the exact location or date of the test – if there was one. The warhead will be inducted by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in 2018 after first being introduced in 2012, the report from China’s state-run Global Times suggests.
“Once the Dongfeng-41 goes into service, China’s ability to protect its own safety and to prevent wars would greatly increase,” said Guangyu. In July, a propaganda video from China claimed that Beijing owns about 2,500 ballistic missiles. In the video, Dongfeng-41 is highlighted as one of the “world’s top five intercontinental missiles.”
Some are saying that this is a “message” to president Donald Trump, although PLA denies those accusations. The development of this missile was also ongoing during the Obama Administration. One mainland analyst cautioned that such a test would not be tied to the change in American leadership, given the months and even years of preparation it requires.
If it works as well as the Chinese crap from Walmart, we don’t have anything to worry about.
i am confused?. is this the old news network. china has had ballistic nukes for fifty years.
RL, I still question the quality of Chinese weapons systems myself although they’re based upon the technology Clinton gave them.
china has nothing to worry about. amerika keeps crashing the ships anyhow.
Chinese products made for their domestic consumption are far better quality than the garbage they sell to the rest of the world, especially to the U.S.
Though, they are probably better mimics than inventors, they can use any production value, you are willing to pay for.
The Chinese Walmart, in China, stocks luxury goods.
Without China there would be no dollar stores.
china owns most of america already
Thank you Bill Clinton!!!!
Loral Space & Communications are proud of the Chinese accomplishments using their guidance technology.
Hah! I stepped outside my NSA algorithm twice this month and they didn’t even notice.
Hey guys, this is Justice. I have not posted or been able to access the site for a couple of months because I cancelled my internet. I think I miss this site most of all but I can use the cost savings to buy MORE canned chicken.
I am at my bug out location and just wanted to say hello. I hope everyone is doing well.
Justice, good to hear from you. Hope everything is going well for you.
Let’s all hope that none of China’s weapons systems work.
Friend I worked with 30 years ago said the yellow race will someday rule the world. He was of Irish background.
I laughed then …
No one will use them because of the guaranteed response. It looks like China, somewhat emulating the US, is developing a MIC (Military Industrial Complex) all its own. Its likely a hybrid of capitalism / communism but in the end its similarities are that those at the top of this quasi “department” want more wealth and power under their control. I think of J Edgar Hoover with the FBI and later the Department Of Narcotics expansion with the war on marijuana for public and arms manufactures for private; the net result is the same. The acquisition of power is a cancerous mindset upon the body politic regardless where it comes from.
The big problem China faces is innovation, free thinking and coming up with new ideas. They’re great at copying things. Lousy at novel concepts. Their entire society is based on being one of the hive. But, that is not to say they haven’t copied some hellacious weapons in recent years.
Heartless, Chinese were much more intelligent before communism. The only Chinese who are free thinkers these days are on Taiwan. I’ve known a few Taiwanese and they’re really sharp.
Could you imagine a world ruled by China? Will we go silently into the night? Or if we must fight to the last? Better to be exterminated? Or die slowly?Is not the third world hell on earth?Live for something, Or die for nothing?we all will die . For what? As the apostles. We will not surrender? Or capitulate.? Semper Fi.
The Chinese are dumping the dollar ,and getting armed to enforce it? Plan accordingly?
Old news. The U.S. and Russia have the same capabilities.
If Detroit or Minnesota gets nuked . Is that a bad thing.? Pray for are enemies?
You people are forgetting one important thing in this conversation. Made In China has two different meanings. Depending who is the customer. Dollar store/walmart gets cheap poor quality items. PLA and Russia customers get top quality things. Not everything MADE IN CHINA is garbage. Only what meats the eye here is. Don’t fool yourself into thinking these superior weapons are junk. Just attack Kim and we then can find out. Exceptional-ville will be GONE.
Well it appears that the USA military is falling into second place. How are they gonna enforce the only in the Petro Dollar oil sales or else deal?
We understood that BRICS was composed of satellite nations, in orbit of Russia.
Due to Russia, we did duck-and-cover for 50ish yrs.
It should be news, if they did not have this capability, or it was not offered to them, yet.
McArthur was right when the Korean Conflict started…..he said “Mr President; Give me 10 atomic warheads right now, and we won’t need to worry about China for a hundred years. Otherwise, we’ll be facing a 100 million man Army in the future….and God help us”.
If they nuke us who is gonna buy all of their cheap shit?
People really do not know what China is about. Having lived and worked there I can tell you they are, in many fields, far advanced of the West already. This was not the case when I first went there in the 1990s (we would laugh at the soldiers in their crappy uniforms and slippers) but that is not the story today. China has advanced A GREAT DEAL since then.
As for stuff about how Chinese people can’t do creativity or invent things, this is also seriously wrong. The rule in China is simple and EVERYONE understands it: do not mess with the Communist Party. But apart from that, you can pretty well do whatever you want, and if it makes money, that is really, really encouraged.
They have super-advanced cities already built and just waiting for occupants. They have ultra-high-speed trains everywhere. They are already doing stuff with genes to ensure their next generations will be physically bigger and stronger and also smarter. And as for their women, the Chinese know a society functions on having beautiful women (it is what makes most men get up in the morning and work hard) so they have encouraged absolutely the most beautiful women to flourish (not land whales and SNAP gorillas, like in the US).
In short, the Chinese use their wealth to build a 21st-century society and get smarter. I look forward to a future where they spread this to the rest of the world!
Finally catching up with Amazon.com are they.
Do nukes actually exist ? I believe that there is presently
a total of four million people living in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. If you look at images of Tokyo ( firebombed ), Hiroshima ( ” nuked ” ) and Nagasaki ( ” nuked )they all look the same.
Wow, then China will have the capability that the U.S. had decades ago.
