* DF-41/CSS-X-10: The newest Chinese ICBM, thought to be undergoing deployment. Road and rail mobile, as well as silo-launchable. Possibly could carry 10-12 MIRV's, although that is largely speculative.

* Nanchang Q-5 [Qiang-5, "Fifth Attack Design"] "Fantan": A fighter-bomber designed for close air support. About a dozen have been modified for nuclear capability. As the A-5, the type has been exported to North Korea and Bangladesh, among others. A large-scale design modification of the Soviet [=MiG=]-19 "Farmer", their first supersonic fighter, it looks very different. The nuclear capable type and one bomb was once proposed to be exported to [[ThisIsHellas Greece]] through a british middleman in case of USSR invading Greece in the 1970s, but refused.

* Part of the Chinese arsenal in ''{{Command and Conquer}}: Generals'' and its expansion. They have, besides silo-launched missiles, nuclear artillery, which is unique among the long-range units in the game because its nuclear shells cannot be intercepted with missile defense systems. In fact, in the expansion there is a Chinese Nuclear General - and as you would've guessed it - whose strategy revolves mostly around The Dragons Teeth. Improved nuclear tank engines and shells, nuclear carpet bombing, nuclear-tipped fighter missiles, cheaper nuclear silos, you name it. Played very straight here. They mostly seem to use ''tactical'' nukes though; a real ''strategic'' nuke -- which is what one would expect a silo-based nuke to be -- would destroy the entire map.

* The DF-4 and DF-5 missiles formed the basis of the Chang Zheng (CZ, "Long March") series of space rockets. The next gen, CZ-5 and on, are being designed separately of military application.
