New Chinese Cruise missile Dongfeng-10

Dongfeng-10 or DF-10 – new Chinese land-based cruise missile, reported defence-blog.com. The new cruise missile will be shown for the first time on September 3 at the  military parade in Beijing.

DF-10 is designed particularly to strike at US carrier battle groups in the Western Pacific. The official Chinese media claimed that a single warhead carried by a DF-10 missile can sink a 10,000-ton vessel.

The missile captured the attention of military experts around the world after its first public appearance in the military parade held in 2009 to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
