CHINESE military leaders have revealed they are testing their latest missile-laden destroyer in waters close to North Korea.

Footage released by state media shows navy crew launching weapons off the state-of-the-art Xining warship to help get sailors ‘battle ready’.

The manoeuvres come as the communist country warned a “storm is about to break” on the Korean peninsula.

Tensions have reaching boiling point after the US moved warships to the area and Pyongyang stepped up a threat to defend itself with nukes in the face of pressure from President Donald Trump.

The Chinese ship’s missile systems are being tested in the Yellow Sea – which separates China from the Korean peninsular.

Xining was unveiled in January and boasts a deadly arsenal of weapons designed for missions including air defence and submarine warfare.
