Beijing:  China’s next-generation intercontinental ballistic missile that could strike anywhere in the world with nuclear warheads is expected to be ready during the first half of next year. Dongfeng-41 missile, which is said to have the longest range of any ballistic rockets in the world, has undergone its eighth test and is now near completion, according to state-run media.

Previous reports have claimed that the missile has a range of at least 7,500 miles (12,000km) and could carry up to 10 nuclear warheads. The new missile also has a speed of more than Mach 10 (7,672mph) and can use decoy devices to find its way through the enemy’s missile defence systems.

The Dongfeng-41 is a Chinese solid-fueled road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile. It has an operational range between 12,000 km to 15,000 km. This would make the DF-41 the world’s longest range missile, surpassing the range of the US LGM-30 Minuteman which has a reported range of 13,000 km.

Another advantage to the DF-41 ICBM system is its launch platform. As with many Russian systems, it is launched from a wheeled, mobile vehicle platform making its launchers difficult to track and target.

Finally, the DF-41 carries up to 12 large nuclear Multiple, Independently targeted Re-entry Vehicle (MIRV) warheads, increasing its effectiveness against multiple large, hardened targets and decreasing the ability to intercept it after re-entry into the atmosphere during its terminal attack phase.

In April 2016 China successfully conducted 7th test of DF-41 with two dummy warheads near the South China Sea amid growing tensions between Washington and Beijing about the area.
