    e latest intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) DF-41. The ICBM is equipped with a separable warhead, which includes 10 to 12 individual guidance nuclear blocks. According to various estimates, the maximum flight range of the DF-41 is about 14 thousand km, which makes it one of the most long-range ballistic missiles in the world.

    Indeed. China has surpassed the declining and withering NATO in developing cutting edge missile technologies. Now China has cemented its capability to obliterate American cities in the event of American aggression in China’s sphere of interests. These are interesting times.

    It seems like supersonic or hypersonic cruise missile anyway long enough to have considerable reach most likely with regional US bases in mind.

    Pathetic attempt at trolling... try harder.

    Makes me think you are probably like SS and are here to sow dissent between Russia and China... just sad really.

    People laugh and joke about them only copying stuff, but they don't normally make mistakes like this... I rather doubt it was a mistake.

    I only compare Russian and Chinese ICBM missiles. Simply, China develops its weapons, has greater potential and outperforms Russia also technically.

    Really?

    The Russians have said their current land based ICBMs can attack the US via the south pole... does that suggest a lack of range?

    I am very impressed that you think 14K km range says anything about their level of technology at all, but by all means tell us all about it.

    China has developed heavy ICBM for solid fuel . Capable of transporting 10MIRV over a distance of 14,000km. This is a great success. Yars has much worse parameters, and Sarmat has been using liquid fuel, and for two years it has not even started flight tests, except for starting from a silo.

    The 14k km range means one thing : they still can't make good SSBN and don't trust the ones they have so they need a longer range ground based one to patrol larger parts in China.

    More warheads means they have less power for eah one and contrary to what you may think a small nuk won't destroy a city.

    Has China ever shared concrete proof to suggest that this missile was successfully tested not once but several times ? Basically this is just one of their claims. Zero concrete evidence that these claims are true.

    DF-41: diameter 2,25m, weight 80 tons, range 14 - 15.000 km
    Yars: diameter 1,8m, weight 49,6 tons, range 11 - 12.000 km

    Maybe it is just me, but for me the Yars seems to be superior to the DF-41.

    There is also the aspect of what it delivers... standard reentry vehicles can be intercepted by ABM systems... in fact an S-500 system located near the Chinese border could probably shoot down this missile before the warheads and decoys even separate.

    In comparison the Russian missile can deliver warheads that can't be intercepted...

    This is interesting. Putin has for the first time publicly confirmed that Russia is helping China to build its early-warning system for detection of missile attack, a critical part of modern nuclear deterrent.

    Which would make China no longer and easy target... I think the US plan was to develop IRBMs that they could use to take out Chinas nuclear capability in about 10 minutes and likely undetected, and therefore take out its ability to directly respond in kind.

    With a working warning system China will see an attack coming so the incoming intermediate range ballistic missiles or depressed trajectory SLBMs will hit empty silos as the Chinese should have enough warning of the scale and scope of the attack to launch their own attack before their ability to launch their weapons is taken away.

    A nice kick in the balls for the US.

    Also a huge confidence boost for China because they should now be much less vulnerable to a sneak attack from anyone... which should improve stability and reduce tensions.

    Good for China and good for Russia... not so good for the people in the US like Bolton and Pompeo who think an attack is good diplomacy... but screw them anyway.

    In the process Russia is also compromising its own early warning systems enabling China to develop missiles that can evade Russian early warning systems.

    Thereafter, China will simply reverse engineer this tech and export it to several countries.

    Why?

    What makes you think the system they are selling China is anything like the one Russia currently uses?

    They could be selling an ancient setup they used in the 1980s but with modern components for all we know... which is going to be much much better than nothing which they have now.

    But more importantly it is Russia that will have intimate knowledge of the Chinese defence system... the Chinese will learn about how the system Russia builds for them works but wont have any idea of what Russia has or how it works, so if you are going to be mr negative, it would actually prevent a sneak US attack (which benefits China) but would make a Russian attack easier because they know the system... which means nothing to Russia or China because why would Russia attack China?

    China almost certainly will reverse engineer the technology... why wouldn't they?

    Do you think Russia will ignore the plans for the Mistral ships they bought?

    If they are making a new helicopter carrier then why not incorporate parts of that design to make something that suits them but is of a proven operational design...

    The Chinese Type 56S which I had to hand back in to police was a copy of a Soviet AKM, but they changed the design... instead of a small hammer delay mechanism in front of the trigger group like they have on the Soviet AKM, the Chinese just put an extended piece of metal above the bolt that blocked the hammer from hitting the firing pin until the bolt carrier was fully forward in place. The Soviet solution prevented the hammer from hitting the firing pin until the bolt was locked to the chamber and the bolt carrier was fully forward... the Chinese solution did the same thing but just required an extra small triangle of metal be added to the rear of the bolt carrier instead of an interrupter arm and spring ahead of the trigger group.

    A simple and clever solution...

    China Hit Target Ship With 'Aircraft-Carrier Killer' Missiles


    They should release some pictures of them hitting it.

    An interesting report on the exercises of the PLA Missile Forces missile brigade with salvo launches of DF-21D medium-range anti-ship ballistic missiles.

    PLA Rocket Force Thread - Page 4 39386210

    The DF-21D is a two-stage solid-propellant ballistic anti-ship missile that entered service with the People's Liberation Army of China in 2015. Its estimated flight range is about 1.5 thousand km, which, when deployed in Guangdong province, gives it the ability to hit targets both in the Taiwan Strait and in the northern part of the South China Sea. Earlier, the Hong Kong edition of the South China Morning Post reported that at a scientific conference held in October 2020, organized by the National Development and Reform Commission of the People's Republic of China, a professor at the Beijing University of Aviation and Astronautics - Beihang University and one of the authors of the book "Unlimited War: Chinese Master Plan to Destroy America" Wang Xiangsui revealed some details of the exercises of the PLA Missile Forces on delivering a massive missile strike on the US Navy aircraft carrier group, which took place at the end of August 2020. According to a Chinese military expert, on August 26, 2020, a DF-21D ballistic anti-ship missile with a maximum range of 1,500 km from Zhejiang province and a DF-26B ballistic missile with a maximum range of 4,000 km from Qinghai province were launched at a moving target ship in the Paracel Islands region in South China Sea. The target was successfully hit.

    China is building new ICBMs silos in inner Mongolia. Atlest 16 silos has been identified so far. The newest DF-41 missiles will be filling these.

    For the first time on television, the PRC demonstrated the deployment of Chinese strategic missile systems with DF-31AG ICBMs. The DF-31AG is an upgraded version of the DF-31A ICBM (also shown in the report), which received a MIRV with several IN units. The range of a solid-propellant three-stage rocket exceeds 11,000 kilometers. KVO DF-31AG - about 150 meters. In terms of its capabilities, the missile is considered one of the most powerful in the arsenal of modern China, second only to the DF-41.
