LONG RANGE INTER CONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILE : TESTED BY CHINA


This month China tested a new rail car mounted long range missile capable of hitting targets in the US. 

Beijing has been developing rail based missile launchers since 1982, according to declassified CIA documents. The most recent test is a significant milestone for Chinese weapon developers, demonstrating that Beijing is moving forward with deploying the DF-41 on rail cars, in addition to road-mobile launchers, officials told the Free Beacon.

China : New Rail Car mounted long range missile

Military analysts say the mobile basing of missiles is designed to complicate preemptive attacks on nuclear forces. The train carrying the missiles includes missile launch cars, a command car, and other system support rail cars, all disguised as passenger train cars.

The combination of high - speed mobility, launch cars disguised as civilian passenger trains, tunnel protection and secure reloading of missiles, coupled with multiple warheads, makes the system extremely hard to regulate or verify the number of systems.

Beijing’s current warhead stockpile is currently estimated to include around 300 warheads. China is believed to have obtained rail mobile missile technology from Ukraine, which, during the Soviet era, built the SS-24 rail-based ICBM, according to a report by Georgetown University’s Asian Arms Control Project.

China also is developing an extensive rail and tunnel system in central China for the missile train, according to the report.
