China will show at the parade a new missile capable of reaching the United States

28
A parade of the armed forces of China will offer viewers a rare picture of its rapidly developing military arsenal. This demonstration will probably show a world and a missile equipped with a nuclear warhead that can reach America in 30 minutes, writes The Independent, a British newspaper.




Dongfeng 41 is one of the latest weapons that, according to the Chinese press, can be presented during the celebration of the seventieth anniversary of the establishment of the Communist Party in the country. A drone capable of overcoming the speed of sound and a robotic submarine will also be shown. Such a show of strength will underline Beijing’s desire to strengthen its bid for Taiwan, the South China Sea and other disputed territories, challenging the United States as the region’s main dominant force.

On Tuesday, 15 of thousands of military personnel and hundreds of military equipment will take part in the parade, the spokesman for the Chinese Defense Ministry, Major General Tsai Zhijun, said.

The ability to project power is becoming increasingly relevant for Chinese leaders who want to control the sea lanes and water areas that Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, the Philippines and other countries also claim.

China has already received [...] resources that could reach potential adversaries around the world

- According to a notice by the US Military Intelligence Agency, published this January.



Imperial power


As noted in an article by The Independent, last year PLA spending jumped by 5 percent to 250 billion dollars, which is about 10 times the level of 1994 of the year. But the United States is still far ahead of the enemy, reaching the 750 bar of billions of dollars.

No details are available on the Dongfeng 41, but the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington believes that it may have a record distance of over 15 thousand kilometers. Analysts also claim that this kind of carrier can reach the States in half an hour, carrying 10 warheads. The previous Chinese Dongfeng 31 missile had a range of more than 11 thousand km, which made most of the continental American territory accessible to it.

China has about 280 nuclear warheads, compared to US 6450 charges or Russia 6850 charges (official statistics). Beijing says it wants to maintain a “minimum reliable containment” configuration, but will not be the first to use nuclear weapon in confrontation. Mobile launchers, it is alleged, "would make it difficult to strike the first blow to any potential enemy."

    Does anyone believe in these 280 warheads? On all types of media. Poor, poor China. All he needs is just 3 dozen missiles, and the warheads will end. wassat although the striped-eared were afraid even of what from the DPRK. They really feel sorry for themselves!

      Well, just one nuclear warhead in the Manhattan area will end both China and the United States ... given the population density in these areas, the losses of these countries will be millions.
      Hmm ... the doomsday watch is getting closer and closer to the treasured figure of the demise of our world.

      This is the data of the Chinese side. The naive can believe in this digital. And how much in fact, China will never say ... And the Stockholm Institute for Strategic Studies provides estimates based on the capacity of uranium enrichment plants / factories. Iran put new centrifuges ... and everything is in a panic, because the spies are over, and the estimates are like a pitchfork on the water: +/- a hundred or two back and forth!
      Therefore, as long as the DF-41 does not fly into the water area of ​​the Pacific Ocean at full range with nominal (typical) military equipment, nothing can be said for sure. And to bring a vigorous mallet across Tianenmen Square - that’s a sweet deal! In the best traditions of socialist realism !!! Again - joy to the people ... bully
      IMHO.

    Correctly, always, the Chinese are doing it. Nothing merges there in the media and through far-fetched experts does not leak to the western attache and intelligence services.
    Punishment is the death penalty.

      Well, why ... all garbage merges ... you want to believe in 15000 km, you want not to believe ... more rumors ... more gossip ... guess the adversary about the real power of this weapon.

    The most offensive thing is that the Chinese have retained the Communist Party as the ruling and we are not! All our achievements in the 20th century were due to the fact that the power was popular.

      We must live and develop further smile with what is available.

      So the Communist Party, led by Gorbaty, surrendered the Soviet Union to steal even more and hang out beautifully. There is no Stalin on them.

          And you forgive me for the CPSU? Did you read the charter? Collective responsibility is registered there, so you don’t need to separate yourself from the governing bodies, it’s just ordinary party members who are responsible, but who will be elected to the governing bodies. So, as in that joke about cowards and a dagger, either be responsible with the Secretary General, or don’t join the party ....

      Do you propose giving power to Zyuganov? The party of Brezhnev was no better. We need a Stalin party with an ideology and a big project.

        I do not consider Zyuganov to be a communist, nor does Gorbachev either. Stalin yes, Lenin yes, all those who are from the general secretaries left the government with what I came to consider as communists, and those who destroyed the USSR they were not communists, they were. grabbers and grabbers

    Will it pop up right on Tanyan Men? I won’t believe it repeat
    China has about 280 nuclear warheads,

    Just an anecdote of some kind: An American comes into the saloon, pulls out a Colt and shouts: "I have a bottle of whiskey and quickly!" Immediately a Russian, a Chinese and a Korean take out their Colts and instruct the American. The bartender is Jewish, says: "Mister, I don't have a Colt, but if need be, I'll use it!" Question: What should an American do, want a drink?

    For some reason, all the zombies together decided that this rocket was for the United States. Or maybe it was prepared for Moscow? Why do you, the Chinese have revealed all their secrets? And why did you decide that China will fight with America? At his side is a tidbit with an endangered population and immense natural wealth.

    If in the 90 years after the collapse of the USSR, how many military secrets had gone to China for a darm !!!! And Russia helped China with the best developments on its own, and now we are reaping the fruits of a generous soul, if the officials didn’t steal the country's budget, we easily went around everyone in the economy and the army ...

    They never had nuclear warheads on all carriers. Even official directories sometimes indicate (for example) - 40 DF-21 / 21A / 21E carriers with a nuclear warhead and 24 DF-21C and DF-21D carriers with a conventional warhead.
    In total, 187 ground-based missiles are equipped with China’s nuclear warheads. Is the figure of 280 BG real? Experts say no. Based on reactor performance. But how much is accurate - it is not possible to say

    It is possible not to "merge" the details, but often such performance characteristics are miscalculated. Let not with an accuracy of 1 km, but nevertheless ...

    Do not believe everything that the media write in the same USA or Britain. The first Chinese ICBMs capable of limited access to the United States (Alaska, Hawaii) appeared with the Chinese in service in 1974-1975. ICBMs capable of reaching the United States (cover completely) appeared with the Chinese in service in 1981.

    The territory of Russia is covered by Chinese missiles with a range of 7 to 8,5 thousand kilometers. And the United States, this missile covers both from the west and from the east.
