General Yesin said at the round-table conference, organised by RIA Novosti on April 2: China will soon finish its development of a module missile, the multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle (MIRV) warheads, that are capable of breaking through the US anti-ballistic missile (ABM) system.
Yesin pointed out that so far all Chinese missiles have been installed with single warheads.
In the future, China will develop, process and perfect MIRV warheads with battle modules supported by equipment capable of breaking through ABM systems.
China’s development of such missiles constitutes asymmetry counterattack to counter US deployment of ABM systems.
Moreover, the ballistic missiles carried by China’s new nuclear submarines have a range of 8,000 km.
China is to carry out missile tests in China’s coastline military drills.
The retired Russian general says China’s military budget has risen 10% a year and reached US$160 billion now, but in terms of indexes, China still lags behind the US and ranks the second in the world.Source: mil.huanqiu.com “Russia Media: China’s ICBM with MIRV Warheads Commissioned Soon” (translated from Chinese by Chan Kai Yee)
