@bustead, thanks for the source. Do you know if there's a modernization program for the 535 warhead or a new 650kt class warhead?
The RV for various ICBMs are still being worked on to reduce weight. The warheads themselves are pretty miniaturized already. While it is possible for China to continue miniaturizing them (eg using HEU temper instead of DU temper), it may not be worthwhile from a maintenance/logistics perspective.

Sorry but China has been accuse of building solar and wind farms out in the middle of nowhere that aren't connected to the main grid. Some have accused China of doing that to fake GDP numbers. So whether true or not, it's not that strange that there's wind and solar farms out in the middle of nowhere. They accuse the same things of these ghosts cities in China many of them I believe are about where these farms are located.

Well I guess China should end its no first use nuke policy if the US's Asian allies are okay with the US using nukes first on China. Also China if it has such a policy should stop its policy not to use nukes against non-nuclear countries if they're allied with the US.
Switching from no first use to first use only takes 1 minute. Make announcement and launch the missile 1 min after. Besides, in nuke war, what's the point to keep upright?

Keeping the "policy" is a way for self promoting in other developing countries. The current strategy will only cast doubt on China's enemies, no harm to anyone not going to have war with China.

Further proof that China's nuclear deterrence is woefully inadequate when former military officers are casually writing articles in military magazines about nuclear war without blowback. China needs to up its nukes in the thousands and shout from the roof tops about its numbers. You will never see anyone casually threatening nuclear war with Russia because it has adequate deterrence.
