    One of three Chinese brigades of intercontinental missiles Dongfeng-41 (DF-41) may have been deployed in the northern province of Heilongjiang bordering Russia, local media reported on Tuesday.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) – The brigade is said to have been deployed in the Daqinq city, the Apple Daily newspaper reported. Another brigade was reportedly deployed in the city of Xinyang in the central Chinese province of Henan.

    The third missile brigade is going to be deployed in the northwestern Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, according to the newspaper.

    The DF-41 may carry up to 10 nuclear warheads and hit targets that are up 14,000 kilometers (about 8,700 miles) away from the launch site.

      That is a pretty impressive capability. The good side to this is that nations with these kind of capabilities think twice before going to war with each other.

      Russia is a massive country took nearly 6 hours for Su-35s to travel from where they were manufactured in the east to where they will be stationed, some 8000 odd km.

      China is sensibly keeping them far away from NATO attack.

      Good strategy move, a guided missile would have to penetrate Russia's air space.

      Both website and newspaper of apple daily are forbidden in China because they are CIA assets. Not very polite of sputnik towards China to publish their stories here. It's clear what they are after.

      michael, Provided China's military might and capabilities, I think that, in this context, it's true.

      Hermes, Sputnik is an independent and true publishing news outlet so they publish bad and good news about anyone.

      loverussia,
      I just said it wasn't very polite. If sputnik wants to run soros's agenda they are of course free to do so but this article has one intention and that is to stir up trouble between Russia and China.

      Hermes, agreed its fairly obvious that Trump wants to drive a wedge between Russia and China - just surprised that Sputnik are collaborating

      Hermes, Sputnik isn't same as these Soros's and all US's backed puppet misleading news, you're confused about what you're talking about.
      If you compare Sputnik with these information war news, then you're misinformed.
