China’s large-scale military parade this week featured an array of high-technology arms, but the most significant reveal was a hypersonic missile called the DF-17.

Until the parade in Beijing on Tuesday to mark the 70th anniversary of Communist Party rule, China’s secretive military had not acknowledged the existence of the DF-17. Military spokesmen in the past responded only in vague terms about it after at least six flight tests of the ultra-high-speed missile were carried out since 2014.

U.S. intelligence agencies estimated that the DF-17 would not be deployed until next year. The missile is considered one of what Beijing calls “assassin’s mace” weaponry — arms designed to give China’s weaker military a strategic advantage over the U.S. military.

Neither the Chinese communists or the Russians have a clue about our real capabilities. ;-) To read more, click here.
