* 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.

* In ''[[TomClancy The Bear and the Dragon]]'', nuclear-armed DF-5 [=ICBMs=] are launched at the US by a panicked missile base commander, during a war between NATO and the PRC. AH-64 Apaches that were in the area destroyed all but one missile while they were launching, with the last being intercepted just before detonating above Washington, DC. This is the last straw for the more-moderate Chinese leadership, and leads to a coup that unseats the generals and "military adventurers" that have been controlling the government.
