Description: The Julang-3 (JL-3) is the third generation of nuclear armed sea-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) developed by the China to equip its fleet of ballistic submarines. The JL-3 has greater range than its predecessor, the JL-2, surpassing the 8,000 kilometers mark (most likely 10,000+ kilometers or 9,000-to-14,000 kilometers from other sources) allowing thus to hit a wide range of targets within the Continental United States (CONUS). The JL-3 nuclear missile entered service with the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) in 2016 along with the Type 094A submarine. The JL-3 may be provided to the Chinese Navy's larger Type 096 ballistic submarines in the 2020s with these boats being able to carry 24 missiles each.
