    Re: China's DF-41

    When will this thing be deployed? I hope before 2008. CSB has shown his willingness to upset the status quo. He may make his move just before Beijing 2008.

    Even a small number of DF-41 are extremely useful to (1) deter US intervention, or (2) limit any US intervention to a local, conventional conflict.

    If China appears to lack an effective second strike capability, it would be too easy for the US to force China to back down with nuclear threats.

    Re: China's DF-41

    What website are you referring to? I look a look at the link you posted (I read Chinese) and it didn't say anything there.

    According to your sources, when was it deployed? Recently?

    Re: China's DF-41

    I began to suspect that whether DF-41 will ever be developed. I was told that apparently China encountered some technical difficulty in developing DF-31, and is now moved to develop its improved variant DF-31A. The DF-41 may well still on paper

    Re: China's DF-41


    i have to say that although you can read chinese , but i am not sure whether you understand how chinese to think over , when they show new weapons , they will not reveal them officially but semi-officially , the semi-official channel is magazines, newspapers , the picture's origion is a chinese magazine named "modern weapons "
    (not sure how to translate it correctly )
    i think i have said that the DF41 had been deployed , I got this conclusion through these chinese words' implication .

    here is another website on o94 nuclear submarine and DF41 http://jczs.sina.com.cn/bbs/2006/0302/14364004.html , according to my judge , i think most of what he said is true .

    Re: China's DF-41

    Thanks for the link, that article was really helpful.

    A question though. In the article he said that DF-41 is expected to be silo-based because they're too heavy to go on roads. But the picture of the DF-41 below shows it to be a on cross-country vehicle, like the Russian Topol-M.

    Another question, what is this "new heavy ICBM" they keep referring to? I think they call it 现役型 with a 甲型 and a 乙型.

    Is this the DF-31A?

    I am sure this photo is a Russian missile (not sure about the model), possibly with some PS too. I don't know why so many people think this is a Chinese missile. Where does it indicate anything related to Chinese or PLA????

    There are so many PS photos around on Internet.

    Take my word, the DF-41 has never left drawing board!
