* 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 as many as 10-12 [=MIRVs=], although that is largely speculative. At least a single regiment (12-24 missiles) is thus far known to be active, as it's launchers were caught on video by Chinese civilians when they had to move through a town.

The People's Republic of China detonated its first nuclear weapon in 1964. Since the PRC Military are secretive to say the least, the precise number of nukes that they have is unknown and estimates range from c.150 to c.400. Similarly, the range, throw-weight, number of warheads, and just about everything else published are basically guesswork. As always in these matters, remember that those who know don't talk, and those who talk don't know.

* DF-5/CSS-4: Liquid-fuelled ICBM, so not exactly brilliant. Long suspected of being a upgraded copy of the [[SuperiorFirepowerIntercontinentalBallisticAndCruiseMissiles Titan II]], a result of Chinese espionage.

* JL-2: Much more modern and capable missile then the JL-1 to be deployed on the Type 094 (again, see below). The exact payload is unknown, although observed guesses suggests it has either a single 1 megaton warheads or 3-4 MIRVs of around 100 kilotons. Range of up to 8,000 kilometers, able to reach the US west coast from Chinese waters but only just.
