    By Bill Gertz - The Washington Times - Monday, November 25, 2019
    China has conducted a flight test of its newest long-range missile, the Dong Feng 41, multi-warhead nuclear strike weapon, the Pentagon confirmed Monday.

    The Nov. 22 flight was the first reported test of the DF-41 since May 2018, said a Pentagon official who spoke on condition of anonymity.

    U.S. intelligence agencies believe the missile has already been deployed, based on its appearance during the Oct. 1 military parade in Beijing, where it was the centerpiece. A total of 16 DF-41s were showcased and Beijing officials at the time boasted that the new missile will be a key element of China’s efforts to confront the U.S.


    A Pentagon spokesman declined to comment on the Chinese missile test. A Chinese Embassy spokesman did not return an email seeking comment on the missile test.

    Separately, China watcher Henri Kenhmann, who operates the blog East Pendulum, reported a possible missile test was carried out around 6:30 p.m. in China on Friday, based on announced air closure zones. The missile was likely fired from a launch center in northwestern China and landed in a remote region of the Gobi Desert.

    “The impact zone is similar to those of previous DF-41 trials in December 2016 and November 2017 and January and May of 2018,” he tweeted.

    Additionally, China also conducted a flight test a week before the DF-41 test of the DF-31 ICBM, an older and shorter range missile that is part of China’s rapidly expanding nuclear arsenal.

    So...has there been any failure so far ? I think the DF-41 has had no failures till now. This weapon is getting so reliable and that bolsters the ditterence.

    A fun fact:
    2003 edition of Chinese nuclear forces by the Bulletin of atomic scientists estimated Chinese nuke arsenal to be:
    20 warheads for ICBMs
    112 warheads for IRBMs and MRBMs
    130 warheads for freefall bombs/aircraft delivery
    120 warheads for tactical means (artillery/SRBMs)
    And claimed a total of 400 (leaving 18 unaccounted for)

    2006 edition of the same had:
    20 warheads for ICBMs
    71 warheads for IRBMs and MRBMs
    40 warheads for freefall bombs/aircraft delivery
    70 warheads stored (not described what kind)
    And a claimed total of 200

    2010 edition of the same had:
    77 warheads for ICBMs
    106 warheads IRBMs and MRBMs
    40 warheads for freefall bombs/cruise missiles/aircraft delivery
    65 warheads stored (not described what kind)
    And a claimed total of 240

    Let's skip to 2019 edition:
    142 warheads for ICBMs
    124 warheads for IRBMs and MRBMs
    20 warheads for freefall bombs/cruise missiles/aircraft delivery
    And a claimed total of 290

    So... yeah. Anyone can make up their own list.

    Federation of American Scientists seem to be an agency with some agendas. They vouch for nuclear disarmament. Although I cannot find reliable counter claims, I'd take any calculations and numbers put out by such an establishment as flawed and prone to, at-least in theory, regulation in view of their stated agenda. A big Chinese stockpile runs afoul of their disarmament dreams.

    FAS is basing their calculations on number of TEL's and how many there are seen on their bases, etc.

    After reading Economist near opening sentence of " China is a military behemoth, but a nuclear minnow. It accounts for well over half the increase in global defence spending since 1990, but its nuclear stockpile is just 2% of the world’s total, with a paltry 290 bombs " I decided unilaterally that writer knows close to nothing but regurgitations of regurgitations of others regurgitations.

    I certainly not going to sign up and subscribe to Economist to read more of their interpretations of other wiid guesses.

    Just my not so humble opinion.

    ракета DF-41 несет 1-2 боеголовки мощностью 1 мегатонну и систему противоракетной обороны. Вес отливки=2200-2500 кг.
