BEIJING -- China has acknowledged the existence of a new intercontinental ballistic missile said to be capable of carrying multiple nuclear warheads as far as the United States, state-run media reported Friday.
A government environmental monitoring center in Shaanxi said on its website that a military facility in the province was developing Dongfeng-41 (DF-41) missiles, the Global Times reported.
The DF-41 is designed to have a range of 12,000 kilometers (7,500 miles), according to a report by Jane's Strategic Weapon Systems, putting it among the world's longest-range missiles.
It is possibly capable of carrying multiple independently targetable reentry vehicles, the U.S. Defense Department said in a report in June, referring to a payload of several nuclear warheads.
China's military is highly secretive, and the Global Times said it had not previously acknowledged the existence of the DF-41.
The original government web post appeared to have been deleted on Friday, but the newspaper posted a screengrab.

The world is becoming much more dangerous. These newer missiles also feature stealth technology. China has no reservations about selling their military hardware.
Obama will have destroyed America first so the Chinese wasted a lot of money on this technology.
But what about all those great deals at Walmart?
I am sure Obama has a thrill going up his leg over this news.
But...but If we disarm, they will, too! (/liberal/communist 'peacenik')
We need strategic deterrents, now more than ever.
Curious as to why they feel the need to develop these.
Thanks for selling this technology clinton.
Obama Disarms, Cuts Deployed Nuke Force By 50
We’re disarming our Minuteman 3’s and turning our Ohio-class subs into a social testbed by tossing women into the crews. I half expect him to announce our B-52s are being repurposed to deliver care packages to Hamas.
Another Long Dong?
Several years ago I happened to google the tern “ring gyro” and noted that all the results returned were from China. That’s all I needed to see to know that this day was coming.

Remember the good old days when a Chinese rocket couldn’t get off the launchpad.
Then along came Bent Willy and LORAL and my how times have changed.
Thank you, Clintons, you douches
