    On the other hand, I will not be surprised 'Murican trying to catch up to Yu Min with W88 ALT 370 , but not quite succeeding. Only those in the know, will know. And very very unlikely that they ever will talk.
    And that exclude all the august minds in this forum.

    China probably been watching, and laughing from the day their 'Test number 6' shed her light over Lop Nor in June 1967.

    I laugh at the innuendoes that China trying to steal 'Murican thermonuke secrets when it is obvious Yu Min configuration was, and still is, so much superior to USA.

    More of the lies and smoke and mirrors 'Muricans surround themselves with and used to smear China.

    Might make interesting reading for you and others interested in this topic.

    "Weapon designer Theodore Taylor wrote in 1987 that 6 kiloton/kilogram had been pretty much the upper limit of what had even been achieved.1 Only a handful of weapons got close to that. "

    gentlemen - I have a question: is there any DF-4 unit left and if so, to which msl BGD do they belong? - Latest IISS wallchart shows 631/633/661/662 all as DF-5 units

    yes, still there. But will continue to serve as a regional deterrence instrument until they can be replaced by the DF-31

    Still effective against India and others though

    As far as I have read on this forum, df4 was retired. Df26 and df31 replaced it.

    Many thanks for all the responses! I know Hans Kristensens "Chinese nuclear forces, 2019". Just wonder to which BGD they are attached - maybe to one of the DF-5 units (e.g. 631 Tongdao region or 662 Sundiancun - which saw some interesting re-construction activities in the years)...
