    Shooting of Chinese operational and tactical missile systems DF-16 and DF-11AZT

    The Chinese mobile operational-tactical missile of the advanced range DF-16. It is believed that the missile can carry 1, 2 or 3 warheads with individual guidance. The range of fire is from 800 to 1000 km. Flight tests, presumably, were carried out in 2009-11. The DF-16 entered service with the PLA.

    DongFeng 11 (export name: M-11, NATO designation: CSS-7) is a mobile, single-stage, short-range ballistic missile developed at CASIC Sanjiang Space Group (also known as 066 base) located in Hubei province. The missile is on a four-axle transport-launcher, which has much in common with the TPU of the Russian SS-1C Scud-B missile. The DongFeng 11 rocket was developed in the 80s and was intended for the export market. The upgraded version of the DongFeng 11A, which has an increased range of fire and increased accuracy, went into service with the Chinese army in 1999. DongFeng 11 is a mobile single-stage solid-fuel short-range ballistic missile. The basic version of the rocket had a range of 280 to 350 km and a payload of 500 kg. The upgraded DongFeng 11A range was increased to 500-700 km. In addition to the conventional high-explosive (HE) warhead, the missile can be equipped with cassette, chemical warheads, as well as a bulk explosion (FAE) ammunition. It can also carry a tactical nuclear charge of 2 to 20 kt.
