Description: The Dong Feng 41, also known as DF-41 and CSS-20 East Wind, is an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) evolved from the DF-31 featuring an enlarged third stage to achieve an improved range of 12,000 km. It will be armed with a single 1 Megaton yield nuclear warhead but a DF-41 MIRVed (multiple warheads) may be possible as well. In July 2014 China officially confirmed the development of the DF-41 next generation ICBM with a range of 12,000 kilometers and 10 MIRVed warheads as a direct response to US missile defenses such as THAAD.

The DF-41 ballistic missile will retain the DF-31 road mobile feature for enhanced survivability. Its extended range will provide China capability to target the whole United States, Europe, Asia and Africa territories. About 50-100 DF-41s fielded by 2016-2020 seems to be likely. DF-41s will complement DF-31 ballistic missiles in the land-based Chinese nuclear arsenal. The first test launch of the road mobile DF-41 missile was carried out by China on December 20, 2014.
