The Chinese DF-10A cruise missile, was shown in public in 2015, and appears to be an improved version of the previous CJ-10 missile. The new missile is more stealthy, precise and with extended range than the previous one. The DF-10A is ground launched and can be used to attack land targets and against surface ships. Its range is about 2,000km and carries a 500kg conventional or nuclear warhead that along with its guidance systems make it a lethal weapon. Its satellite guidance, ground following and inertial navigation system, make them very precise weapons, estimating that the impact occurs no more of ten meters from the objective. The missile can identify its target in flight and then fly at low altitude to avoid the radars and hit the target.
