Report: China Working on New Intermediate-Range Missile

March 4, 2014

China is working on a new intermediate-range, nuclear-capable missile, the Washington Free Beacon reported on Monday.

The new ballistic missile, dubbed the Dongfeng-26C, is projected to be able to travel a minimum of 2,200 miles.

The newspaper said it confirmed the missile’s development with U.S. intelligence agencies, though specifics about the weapon were few. The missile is thought to be solid fueled and road mobile.

 

The Dongfeng-26C is anticipated to be mentioned next month in the Defense Department’s yearly briefing to Congress on China’s armed forces.

“China is developing and will soon deploy new longer-range theater missiles as part of its anti-access, area denial strategies,” China defense expert Richard Fisher wrote in an email cited by the newspaper.
