the first time i saw this picture i thought it is DF21 ICBM, but later i realized that the launching vehicle is different from either DF21 or DF31's

the someone claimed it to be a picture of DF41, but i thought the DF41 is supposed to be HUGE(bigger than DF31 not smaller), and sits in silos.

The DF-21 is an IRBM not an ICBM and that missile is too big to be the DF-41, which is not even operational yet.

Here is a picture of the DF-3:



Looks like the cone has been redesigned and the launcher seems different.

that's a DF3 i remebered, it's supposed to be an old looking missile.

I don't remember the DF3s had a real lauching vehicle, it's put on metal racks and towed by a truck.

but i guess they might decide to make a new launching vehicle for the missle.

PS. i HATE the forum's new color scheme!

Its actually the DF-3/A with extended range.


The DF-41 is suppose to be roughly the same height but a lot more wider
