Beijing’s most powerful nuclear missile could be ready to enter service.

Quoting a military expert, China’s state-run newspaper People Daily claimed that the Dongfeng-41, or DF-41, was ready to be commissioned.

China reportedly conducted the 10th flight test of the intercontinental ballistic missile last month, which is said to be capable of striking anywhere in the world with up to 10 nuclear warheads.

The news came as tensions between Beijing and Washington escalated over South China Sea.

DF-41 is said to have the longest range of any ballistic rockets in the world.

The missile is 16.5 meters (54 feet) long with a diameter of 2.78 meters (9.1 feet). It’s said to have a range of at least 7,500 miles (12,000km) and with striking accuracy within 100 metres (328 feet).

The new missile also has a speed of more than Mach 10 (7,672mph) and can use decoy devices to find it way through the enemy’s missile defence systems.

People’s Daily, the mouth-piece of China’s Communist Party, published the report on Friday.

The report was titled ‘DF-41 has reached the standard of deployment and is among the most powerful missiles in the world, says expert’.
