The JL-3 third-generation solid-fuelled missile, which is used to equip China’s next-generation nuclear missile submarines, has an intercontinental range (up to 12-14 thousand km) and is capable of carrying up to ten independent warheads. The JL-3 SLBM is reportedly intended to arm the next-generation Type 096 nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) class, the first of which is expected to enter service in the late 2020s.

There was no conformation from the China's government on the test, however, according to the Defence Blog, Maritime Security Administration of Liaoning Province issued a navigation warning about the closing of the maritime zone for military exercises in the Bohai Bay area on June 2, 2019.
