    It is reported by the Asian Defence News that China secretly tested the Dongfeng-31A long-range missile carried by camion in October, which was specially designed. The article said that the traditionaly, China would only launch short-range missiles carried by camions and this test means that the PLA improves its power in long-range mobile attack.

    The report said that the missile was specially design to suit the camion. Professionally speaking, it is a mobile long-range ballistic missile. The missile is able to attack objects 11000 km away, which is a range that can cover most regions of the northwest US. Since now, only the USA and Russia acquire such weapon system. The detail of the test has not yet been disclosed, according to the intelligence agency of India.

    The PLA China has difficulties in developing long-range ballistic missiles, but now it seems that they’ve overcome them. The successful test of Dongfeng-31A means does not only mean that China can transport its warhead to anywhere they want, but also means that they are more powerful to attack enemies from afar.

    bound to happen sometime. Darn it. In a way I'll say its inevitable. We've been building them for 40+ years. On the other hand we have myself and everyone who ones any Chinese electronic device to thank.
