DF-21D CARRIER KILLER Chinese anti-ship ballistic missile

DF-21 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia background information source:

Anti-ship ballistic missile

The US Department of Defense has stated that China is developing a high hypersonic[1] land-based anti-ship ballistic missile based on the DF-21, with a range of up to 3,000 kilometres (1,900 mi).[4][5] These would combine manoeuvrable reentry vehicles (MaRVs) with some kind of terminal guidance system. Such a missile may have been tested in 2005-6, and the launch of the Jianbing-5/YaoGan-1 and Jianbing-6/YaoGan-2 satellites would give the Chinese targeting information from SAR and visual imaging respectively. The upgrades would allow China to employ the missile to destroy US Navy aircraft carriers.[6]

The 10-1-09 parade, which marked the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, featured more than 8,000 servicemen and women, nearly 500 tanks, missiles and other military vehicles and a flyover by Chinese warplanes.
Lieutenant General Fang Fenghui, general director of the parade, told Xinhua the parade was supposed to showcase the transformation of the PLA from a low-tech, manpower-intensive force to a high-tech, 21st-century one.
