Roundup [World Wide Web] senior media people – Bill Goetz (Bill Gertz) on August 15, 2012 in Washington free lighthouse (freebeacon.com) website published an article on the recent rumors outside of the so-called “DF-41″ (Dongfeng -41) Chinese new roadbed ballistic missiles and the JL- 2 (JL-2) new submarine-launched ballistic missiles in a great deal of attention, the main content of the article is as follows:
U.S. media said the July 24, China successfully test-fired a new type of “Dongfeng -41″ land-based mobile ICBMs, outside assessment of the missile to carry a sub-guided multi-warhead (MIRV) has a longer range than the type of “Dongfeng -31″. “Dongfeng -41″ once underestimated recognized as the DF-31A, but two years ago, the Pentagon began to lock a new longer range road-mobile ICBMs, and that is today called “DF-41″.
China’s publicly reported to support the internal report of the U.S. government about the flight tests of the JL-2 submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM). China Shenzhen TV reported on Aug. 8 and 9, 2011, a sea cruise Jin-class ballistic missile submarines equipped with the JL-2 missile, but did not mention the missile test plan. This television quoted a Chinese military commentator saying, “According to the Pentagon, said that the PLA has been do not have the ability to launch a submarine-launched ballistic missiles. Since then, the Maritime Safety Administration of Liaoning Province August 13 navigational warnings, warned vessels to avoid entering the waters.
Pentagon’s latest annual report (China Military Power Report), the Chinese military strategy to develop a new nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine, named “Jin” class, or 094. “Jin-class ballistic missile submarines will carry the JL-2 submarine-launched ballistic missiles with a range of 7400 kilometers. “Jin” class submarine and the JL-2 submarine-launched ballistic missiles “will enable the PLA Navy, for the first time have a reliable sea-based nuclear strike capability”.
According to the report, JL-2 program has experienced many delays, with initial operational capability is expected in the next two years. China has deployed two 094 strategic missile submarines, reports indicate, will eventually serve eight. “DF-41″ the highway mobile ballistic missile, the JL-2 will give a stronger Chinese nuclear forces viability.
as commander-in-chief in charge of the U.S. nuclear strike force, the Robert – Kohler (C. Robert Kehler), commander of the U.S. Strategic Command, Air Chief Marshal, do not agree with this month, the U.S. military earlier ” China’s nuclear arsenal has been better than the United States’ argument. August 8, Kohler told reporters in Omaha, said: “I do not believe the point of view of the intelligence agencies ‘China has hundreds of nuclear weapons’.”
the confidentiality of the Chinese armed forces so that the outside world is difficult to assess the China’s strategic nuclear forces. However, the U.S. State Department in November 2007, a telegram said, China is the missile guidance system used in the ballistic missile submarines purchased from Ukraine. New strategic weapons, including three models in addition to the “waves” missile, a variant of the DF-31 mobile missile, road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile – Dongfeng-31 “,” Dongfeng 31A “and” Dongfeng 41 missiles – as well as several medium-range missiles and hundreds of missiles can carry conventional warheads and nuclear warheads short-range missiles. China is also modernizing its Russian strategic bomber designed. Russian Strategic Rocket Forces commander said in an article published in May, China’s nuclear arsenal may have up to 3,000 nuclear warheads – far more than the U.S. intelligence agencies estimated 300-400 nuclear warheads. Russian retired Admiral Victor? ? Yesin (Viktor Yesin) reserve of up to 70 tons of weapons-grade uranium and plutonium, “China’s nuclear arsenal in the 1600-1800 nuclear warheads”. “Dongfeng 5A, Dongfeng 31A” long-range missiles and the JL-2 submarine-launched missile modified with multiple warheads, he said.
commander of U.S. Strategic Command is responsible for U.S. nuclear forces C?? Robert? ? Keller (C. Robert Kehler) Air Chief Marshal early August, said he did not agree that China’s nuclear arsenal than the current estimate of the United States but also a huge argument. He said, “I do not believe that China’s nuclear weapons than the intelligence agencies have been reporting more than hundreds or thousands of pieces.
Chinese military expert, Richard? “JL-2 missile tests increase aggressive with China in the South China Sea seems there is a link,” With 094 missile submarines from a new base in Hainan Island, Yalong Bay sailing deterrence? Fisher (Richard Fisher) cruise control of the military on a higher level in the South China Sea, the PLA will seek to ensure a safe cruising waters in their ballistic missile submarines. “Within a month, China has test-fired two type of the next generation of nuclear missiles, the two types of missiles can be equipped with a sub-guided multiple warhead”, he added.
