Beijing China has deployed an anti-ship ballistic missile on the nuclear bomber H-6N for the first time between India and South China Sea along with the United States in an escalation on the eastern Ladakh border. By deploying it, China has tried to give a challenge to India and America.

This is the first time this Chinese missile has appeared with an H-6N bomber. Few countries in the world have such technology. In such a situation, there may be some difficulties for India and America.

Explain that the US intelligence agency had such reports since 2017 that China is building two such air launched ballistic missiles. India still does not have the technology to launch anti-ship ballistic missiles from the air.
America may face difficulties in South China Sea
Let us tell you that in South China Sea, the tension between America and China has increased considerably. The US has deployed its most sophisticated warships to the South China Sea. At the same time, Japan is also conducting maneuvers at different levels with India and Australia.
In such a situation, launching such a missile from China is very important. In the same week, the American warship passed close to Taiwan, to which China raised strong objections. If such a fire now happens, then this missile could threaten the American warship.
The biggest feature of this missile is that it does not allow the enemy to react. Apart from this, the enemy gets to know as soon as the ballistic missile land and sea variant are launched.
Missile characteristics
Let me tell you that this is a state-of-the-art missile technology. Its specialty is that it is a two-stage solid fuel-fired missile. It has an operational range of up to 3000 kilometers. It is also capable of carrying nuclear warheads with it.
According to the defense expert, the missile is also called the air launch variant of China’s DF-21D, as its front part looks like a hypersonic glide vehicle (HGV). But the US intelligence agency named this missile CH-AS-X-13 in 2019. It is over 30 feet in length and has a firepower of up to 2000 kilometers. It can also be launched from the ground.
