The SAC arsenal of land-based nuclear warheads is believed to include the DF-3A, DF-4, DF-5 (CSS-4), DF-21, DF-31 and the DF-31A. These land-based ballistic missiles have a range of 200 to 5,000 kilometers. According to one U.S.-estimate, "China has approximately 176 deployed warheads, plus an unknown number of stored warheads, for a total stockpile of approximately 240 warheads" (Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, Vol. 64, No. 3).


US has about 5000+ warheads

What do you think, Mr. Interesting ? China never announced the number of KIA of the Sino-Vietnam war either because KIA's are military secret however big or small that number.  The numbers you hear are the numbers (propaganda) given by the Vietnamese/USSR partnership and everyone bought it because [everyone wanted it]. It's a guessing game, Mr, Interesting the grouch. We never knew that the US postures us 24/7 365 with live nukes either and neither had the US anticipated that we Chinese are capable of ASAT'ing and ABM'ing either. Get the picture?

Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

What does "US's 5000+ warheads"  have anything to do with YOU? Are China's 240 warheads enough to blow YOUR bloody country out of this planet?  Don't pretend you are an American. I do ...

Actually, an overseas Chinese student in Singapore wrote an essay in 2000 I think suggesting that based on calculations, that warhead/stockpile-wise that China should have something like 2400 plus warheads. Delivery systems however no one have any guesstimates.

The DongFeng-41 (DF-41, NATO codename: CSS-X-10) is a three-stage, solid-propellant, intercontinental-range ballistic missile developed in the 1990s as a successor to the DF-5 (CSS-4) ICBM. The 12,000km-range DF-41 was developed in parallel with the 8,000km-range DF-31. Like the DF-31, the DF-41 will also have a mobile launch capability providing greatly improved survivability compared with previous Chinese intercontinental missiles. Other features may also include a independently-targeted re-entry vehicle (MIRV) capability and penetration aids such as decoys and flares to complicate enemy missile warning and defence.
