Photo said to be Dong Feng-41 missiles
China conducted a second test on its Dong Feng-41 missile system on Friday officials have said.
Dong Feng-41 are road mobile intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM). US intelligence believes they will each be fitted with up to 10 independently-targetable re-entry vehicles.
On December 5th a Chinese war ship and USS Cowpens came close to a collision in the South China Sea which heightened tensions between the nations.
The Dong Feng-41 has a range of between 6,835 and 7,456 miles and is viewed by the US as a first-strike weapon, able to carry out a surprise attack that would limit the counterstrike capability of the enemy.
