Beijing announces deployment of carrier killer mis-sile after U.S. warship sails near South China Sea
Beijing has announced that its so-called carrier killer anti-ship mis-sile has been deployed to the country’s northwest, just a day after the U.S. Navy sailed a warship past disputed islands in the South China Sea.
China’s DF-26 ballistic mis-sile, which reportedly has a range of 3,000-4,000 km, was mobilized to the country’s northwest plateau and desert areas, the state-run Global Times newspaper reported Tuesday, quoting national broadcaster CCTV.
