    At least they didn't recommend developing nuclear weapons to blow up their own country/territory so others wouldn't invade it LOL

    I dont think that this is a very good comparition. First the "DF-31B" picture is distorted and that may well reduce its length (look at the cabin of the truck. Its got "shorthened"). Second, the picture was taken somewhat ahead of the truck, while the old "DF-31" picture really gets at the middle of the truck. This makes the "DF-31B" seem shorter than it really is.

    Haha a good question
    I don' t know but very possible one Brigade equiped normaly with 12 TELs the number depends size of missiles DF-11/15 36 by Brigade, 6 for ICBMs and normaly a reload by TEL.

    For it the specialist is SOC the master to locate the units, launchers, sensors also but going for Jane's sadly 3 years ago !!! FAS provide also excellent reports !

    But what type of MRBM he replace DF-3 possibly retired or other or in more ?

    ICBM or water pipes, both are too long for the tooth.

    People who want to see "water pipe transporters" will probably see more of them soon :)

    The "Global Times" confirms the DF-41 is deployed and deployment should be accelerated.

    China should “build more strategic nuclear arms and accelerate the deployment of the DF-41 intercontinental ballistic missile” to protect its interests, should Trump attempt to corner the country in an “unacceptable way”, it said.

    How many DF-41 already deployed?
    I believe China would assume Trump administration will "corner" China ... you will see the response soon from Xi ... military bulit up, including DF-41 and DF-31B
