China’s military has conducted the first flight test of a new variant of one of its road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missiles in a sign that Beijing is increasing its strategic strike capability against the United States.
The test of a new DF-31B missile was conducted Sept. 25 from a missile test range in central China.
A Pentagon spokeswoman declined to provide details of the test.
“We continue to monitor China’s military modernization, including its missile tests,” Cynthia O. Smith, the spokeswoman, told the Washington Free Beacon.
