China capability extend beyond your imagination. Never underestimate the rising dragon:
Main article: The People's Republic of China's Anti-Satellite (ASAT) Program
The PLA has started the development of an anti-ballistic and anti-satellite system in the 1960s, code named Project 640, including ground based
lasers, and anti-satellite missiles. On 11 January 2007 China conducted a successful test of an anti-satellite missile, with an SC-19 class KKV.
The PLA has deployed a number of space-based systems for military purposes, including the imagery intelligence satellite systems like the ZiYan
series, and the militarily designated JianBing series, synthetic aperture satellites (SAR) such as JianBing-5, BeiDou satellite navigation network,
and secured communication satellites with FENGHUO-1.
The PLA is responsible for the Chinese space program. To date, all the participants have been selected from members of the PLA Air Force. China became
the third country in the world to have sent a man into space by its own means with the flight of Yang Liwei aboard the Shenzhou 5 spacecraft on 15
October 2003 and the flight of Fei Junlong and Nie Haisheng aboard Shenzhou 6 on 12 October 2005 and Zhai Zhigang, Liu Boming, and Jing Haipeng aboard
Shenzhou 7 on 25 September 2008.
Missile technology control regime
While not formally joining the regime, in March 1992, China undertook to abide by the guidelines and parameters of the Missile Technology Control
Regime (MTCR), the multinational effort to restrict the proliferation of missiles capable of delivering weapons of mass destruction. China reaffirmed
this commitment in 1994 and pledged not to transfer MTCR-class ground-to-ground missiles. In November 2000, China committed to not assist in any way
the development by other countries of MTCR-class missiles. Letter of A Q Khan (Pakistani Scientist) has revealed of violations by sharing missile and
nuclear technology with Pakistan's whose long range missile ghauri is similar to that of China's Missiles.
The CJ-10, one of China's newer long-range land attack cruise missiles, made its first public appearance during the military parade on the 60th
Anniversary of the People's Republic of China; the DH-10, CJ-10, and other missiles represents the next generation in missile technology in the PLA
and the drive towards modernizing the capability of the PLA.
China has been reported to have engaged in laser weapons research, but there have been no reliable sources of information regarding the state, or
nature of these weapons systems. Speculation from some sources have suggested incredibly varied programs of development, such as anti-missile,
anti-personnel, and anti-satellite applications.China may be able to blind and disable satellites with ground-based lasers.
China's attitude towards limiting the use of land mines is still unclear. However, it has stopped production as of 2003, due to the "China's
peaceful rise" policy.
A photo of what may be an early PLA rail gun suggests that the PLA is investing heavily in this sector.
The PLA has tested two types of hypersonic space vehicles, the Shenglong Spaceplane and a new one built by Chengdu Aircraft Corporation.
According to the Pentagon, China is currently developing kinetic-energy weapons, high-powered lasers, high-powered microwave weapons, particle-beam
weapons, and electromagnetic pulse weapons with its increase of military fundings.
