Just google the ground-based midcourse missile

Look what i have found from Boeing: Missile Defense Systems - Ground-based Midcourse Defense System Home

"The Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) System is the first and only operationally deployed missile defense program to defend the homeland against long-range ballistic missile attacks. The system provides early detection and tracking during the boost phase, midcourse target discrimination, precision intercept and destruction of inbound ICBMs through force of hit-to-kill technology."

China says missile defense system test successful

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIJING -- China's military successfully tested a system for intercepting missiles in mid-flight on Monday, state media reported.

Few details were given about the test, with the official Xinhua News Agency saying only that "ground-based midcourse missile interception technology" was tested within Chinese territory and achieved the expected objective.

"The test is defensive in nature and is not targeted at any country," Xinhua said.

China's military is in the middle of a major technology upgrade, spurred on by double digit annual percentage increases in defense spending. Missile technology is considered one of the military's particular strengths, allowing it to narrow the gap with the U.S. and other armed forces.

Xinhua did not further identify the system tested, although China is believed to be pursuing a number of programs aimed at shooting down stealth aircraft and downing or disabling cruise missiles and precision-guided weapons.

Somebody please shed some lights , in between I had to depend on Wikipedia.

it is great that china has done this at least now our political bosses will feel threatned and would allow ASAT test, which is more of symbolic value.

Earlier our political boss must have been comforting under false sense of security that China has not conducted anti missile test despite the fact that they have S300 missile and its chini clones.

I hope that things will change in India and go ahead would be given by MMS.

S300 is just even not a "TMB".
you underestimate CHinese ambition toooo much.

it's called CD or CjDby.net, I always get the latest info or pics regarding Chinese military from it, it's unofficial and has existed for 7 years and the info it leak are very accurate. I guess it criticizes a fighter producer too much recently, and claimed that the J-xx is something like F-22 which is what the PLAAF trying to cover, these make it finally closed off.

USA,Russia,India,Israel have all done this and Japan is also in the process or may have also done this.
acknowledged, that means this technology is not a big deal. I guess China has to go faster to have some real deals.

This is not really a race in fact it maybe wiser to wait and watch others since no Country has truly perfected a BMD and probably never will against MIRV's and TOPOL type ICBM'S.

well, guy, the mission might be a mid-course interception in space..... if so, it is competely different from the “adterminal interception" of Russia, India ,Israel and Japan.

however, I have to wait for more details.

in fact, CHinese would not make a fuss for a “adterminal interception"

in fact, CHinese managed "adterminal interception" in 1970s with FJ-1 anti-missle systems even during the rule of Mao.

CHinese FJ-1 anti-missle system,which were developed in 1960s-1970s. it could hold up missles with nuke warheads.

It's likely a test of HQ-19 as I mentioned in this forum earlier, 400km range. Congrats! Next exposure might be ship based laser guns.
