China to unveil new missile types on National Day: official

A senior Chinese military commander said Sunday that Thursday's National Day parade in Beijing will feature previously undisclosed technologies in the 108 missiles on display.

Yu Jixun, Deputy Commander of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Second Artillery Force and Vice Commander-in-Chief of the joint headquarters for the military parade, made the statement ahead of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China on October 1.

Yu said all the missiles to be displayed were new models or upgraded models never before made public.

They included two types of surface-to-surface conventional missiles, a land-based cruise missile, surface-to-surface intermediate and long-range missiles that could be equipped with either nuclear or conventional warheads, and nuclear-capable intercontinental missiles, he said.

Yu said the conventional missiles could launch precision strikes in all weathers and directions, while the land-based cruise missile boasted long-range and low-altitude flight, precision targeting, and quick emergency response from concealed places, he said.

The new-type surface-to-surface intermediate and long-range missiles were "major weapons in winning information-based warfare, " Yu said.

He said the nuclear-capable intercontinental missiles were "remarkable symbols" of China's defense muscle.

"The land-based cruise missiles and the new-type surface-to-surface intermediate and long-range missiles will make their first appearance."
