With an attack range of 3,000-4,000 kilometers, China’s DF-26 intermediate-range ballistic missile, shown to the public at Beijing’s military parade on Sept. 3 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of World War II, can hit US military bases in Guam, not to mention warships, according to the state-run Reference News.
One of the announcers at last week’s parade said the DF-26 was developed particularly to target medium-sized warships, such as destroyers. The DF-21D meanwhile is presumed to have been designed to sink larger vessels like aircraft carriers, according to Reference News. Because the announcer mentioned the anti-ship capabilities of the missile, it is believed that the anti-ship version of the DF-26 has already been deployed to frontline units.
