looks like China intention is to significantly increase its nuclear warheads afterall
From the article:
"To reduce international concerns about the potential plutonium diversion issues, China needs to keep its plutonium recycling programs more transparent including timely reporting of its stockpile of civilian plutonium like they did before 2016," Hui Zhang, a senior research associate at Harvard University's Project on Managing the Atom, said in an email.
No need to "reduce international concerns". China should start ramping up nuclear warhead production. This is a volatile period and having such a small number of nuclear weapons is a national security issue.

How heavy is China nuclear warhead? China doesn't have nuclear-armed cruise missile like BGM-109 Tomahawk or AGM-86 ALCM meaning that China nuclear warhead have more fissile material and actually very heavy (need more rocket fuel to carry). China needs more nuclear test to miniature their nuclear warhead(physics package). Maybe can test in north korea to avoid worldwide sanction;). For example W80 yield 150kt and weight about 130kg compared to china lightest warhead yield 200kt-300kt which is 500kg.

W80 warhead ~150kt max yield. Look at how small it is:oops:. I can't believe this thing is 7 times more powerful than Fat Man

China doesn’t bother with small yield tactical nukes because it treats nukes as the last resort, not first response. Chinese nukes are overwhelmingly megaton yield city killers.

If anyone is stupid enough to use kiloton tactical nukes against China, they will eat megaton yield strategic ones in response. ‘Sos, ‘dem be all we have!

Nukes are genocidal weapons; they poison you down to the genetic level; we still don’t know the long term genetic effects of those Hiroshima and Nagasaki survivors.
It should be appropriate that the white anglos all equally get their fair share of radiation and genetic poisoning- after all, they mustn’t believe they can poison Asians again without recourse.

It should also revoke the no-first use policy and adopt use at will policy while keeping 2000 of its nukes always ready to launch just like Russia and the USA.
@BoraTas the reason for the UNDERSTANDING between Russia and China is that the Russia provide the muscle (nuclear weapon) while China provide the butter (economics) while both side built up their respective weaknesses. I think its a perfect complement , if the US use nuclear weapon on the Chinese the Russian will automatically respond that is the principle of MAD.

China should not entrust something as important as strategic nuclear deterrence to any other nation... for its very existential survival is at stake.

US could just persuade Russia to gang up and both take China out of the picture and they can share the spoils and postpone peak oil by another 30 years with 1.4 billion wiped out.... and US will backstab Russia again but thats what it does best

Remember at one time USSR asked US for permission to nuke China.... after Putin retires tables could turn again
