WW3 ALERT: China Set to Deploy Nuke-Equipped Ballistic Missile Capable of Reaching US

The missile has an estimated range of 9,000 miles and is the first in Beijing’s arsenal to be capable of delivering multiple warheads to any part of the US from any location on the Chinese mainland. Unlike previous Chinese missiles, the DF-41 is not limited to a silo, and can be deployed with a mobile launcher.

Until 2008, China was believed to have only 20 nuclear warheads. According to Fisher, that number has now ballooned to between 200 and 400.

This is still a far cry from the arsenal of the United States, which is believed to comprise some 4,760 nuclear warheads.
