China Tests Missile With 10 Warheads

Washington Free Beacon

China flight tested a new variant of a long-range missile with 10 warheads in what defense officials say represents a dramatic shift in Beijing’s strategic nuclear posture.

The flight test of the DF-5C missile was carried out earlier this month using 10 multiple independently targetable reentry vehicles, or MIRVs. The test of the inert warheads was monitored closely by U.S. intelligence agencies, said two officials familiar with reports of the missile test.

The missile was fired from the Taiyuan Space Launch Center in central China and flew to an impact range in the western Chinese desert.

No other details about the test could be learned. Pentagon spokesman Cmdr. Gary Ross suggested in a statement the test was monitored.

    Some Background on how the ChiComms got this multiple warhead technology is certainly in order. Recommended reading for starters: Year of the Rat at Amazon. Source of the technology transfer to China is the 1996 Clinton White House. The Democrat(ic) Party & the Clintons saved the PRC 50-years of R&D in developing a hi-tec nuclear arsenal. Treacherous Clinton treason came in 1996 long before the private email servers.
