China is a becoming the latest nation to flex its muscles in an attempt to intimidate the U.S. and its allies.
The Chinese government posted a video last week of its new and powerful DF-16 ballistic missile being wheeled around on a ten-wheeled mobile launch truck.
The DF-16 has a range of about 620 miles, which would allow it to strike the Japanese island of Okinawa, and would also be capable of striking the islands of Taiwan and the Philippines.
Presently, Okinawa is home to many U.S. military bases.
The DF-16 is being touted as a highly accurate ballistic missile that can come to within sixteen feet of its target and can carry up to three warheads weighing over 2000 lbs each; it can be armed with either high explosives or a nuclear weapon.
