Some info about what the above devices are and how different they are from the ones 10 years before would be helpful.

Keep em coming!! Am loving the unmanned stuff. Kudos to the Chinese people for the technological leap.

ballistic missiles in summary

JL-2 is a intercontinental-range submarine-launched ballistic missile deployed on Type 094 SSBN, with a maximum range of 7,200 km. Type 094 deterrence patrols with JL-2 missiles began in December 2015.


The DF-17 is a type of ballistic missile specifically designed to carry a hypersonic glide vehicle. its estimated range is 1,800-2,000 km, and is expected to reach initial operational capability by 2020. It will be capable of delivering both nuclear and conventional payloads, as well as a maneuverable reentry vehicle instead of an HGV. The first test of the DF-17 ballistic missile took place on November 1, 2017.


The DF-31 is an ICBM with a range of 8,000-11,000 km.



The DF-41 is an ICBM with an estimated range between 12,000 - 15,000 km, which appears on parade for the first time.


The DF-26 is an IRBM with a range of 3,500 km. Few details are known.


The DF-5 is an ICBM with a range of 12,000 km.


DF abbreviated from Dong Feng, literally means "East Wind".
