(11) DF-ZF hypersonic glide vehicle.
WZ-10 new engine
DF-ZF hypersonic glide vehicle
New DF-ZF hypersonic glide vehicle is a nuclear strike weapon, according to the Pentagon.
Has conducted five tests of the DF-ZF since last year, an indication it is a high-priority weapons system. China’s Defense Ministry has confirmed tests of the weapon, saying only it is an experimental system.
The glide vehicle, launched atop a missile, travels along the edge of space at Mach 10, or nearly 8,000 miles an hour. Yet the vehicle is agile enough to overcome the effects of high-speed travel to maneuver – both to avoid missile defenses and for zeroing in on targets.
The DF-ZF can also be armed with a conventional warhead, making it third missile outfitted with precision guidance that is accurate enough to attack ships at sea.
