China unveils intermediate-range ballistic missile for the first time – Video

Chinese state television has published a video showing the launch of an intermediate-range DF-26 ballistic missile. Tests have been conducted in the northwest of the country.

According to the “South China Mourning Post”, the missile can carry a nuclear warhead and it’s designed to destroy ground targets.

The site added that the missile ranges from 3 to 5.7 thousand kilometers. Thus it can reach Guam Island, which has the largest US strategic base in the Pacific Ocean.

Earlier, China has tested the S-400 air defense system it acquired from Russia, and managed to destroy targets about 250 kilometers away.
