Description: The DF-4, CSS-3 Western designation, is a two-stage, liquid-fueled, ground-based intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) with a limited range developed in China. Its first stage is derived from the DF-3/CSS-2 IRBM. The first test launch was carried out in 1970 achieving initial operational capability with the People's Liberation Army (PLA) by the end of the 1970s. It has a maximum range of more than 5,400 kilometers and is nuclear capable fitted with a single warhead. PLA deployed about 30 missiles with their primary targets being Guam and locations in Russia. As of early 2008, the US Intelligence community estimate is that the PLA Second Artillery Corps holdings include 15 to 20 DF-4s with 10 to 15 launchers.
