    "China also appears to be seeking to 'sprint to parity' with the United States in warhead numbers along with growing space warfare capabilities poses 'a much greater danger to U.S. strategic forces,' Fisher said, and should prompt a build up of U.S. nuclear forces.

    [Admiral Cecil] Haney said another concern of Strategic Command is China’s re-engineering of its long-range missile to carry multiple nuclear warheads.

    U.S. intelligence agencies detected the test of a new DF-41 intercontinental ballistic missile on Dec. 4 with two independently targetable reentry vehicles, or MIRVs.

    By contrast, the United States has removed all multiple warheads from its land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles."
