China 2

guttentag (313541) writes "The New York Times reports that India said Thursday it had successfully launched a missile with nuclear capability and a 3,100-mile range, giving it the ability to strike Beijing and Shanghai. It is suggested that this intended as a "deterrent" against attack by China. One hopes that China will not respond by announcing plans to deter India from using this."

The missile can carry 3 to 10 independently targeted nuclear warheads (MIRV), is transportable along roads in its canister, and can strike 70% of Europe. This is a true game changer in Asia, and the Chinese no doubt will invigorate their nuclear delivery systems
