Abstract

Qian Xuesen, the father of China's ballistic missile, became the Head of China's ballistic missile programme in May 1956. After analysing the new commercial satellite imageries available in the public domain, one can easily identify the extensive Chinese deployment area with roughly 55 lauch pads for their medium range ballistic missiles deployed at Delingha and Da Qaidam. The deployment area according to the available satellite imagery has been located at the Qinghai province. The 55 launch pads at Delingha and Da Qaidam have four different basic designs. The most common design found among the launch pads are rectangular and circular in nature. China currently is on a spree of developing and accelerating development in the field of sophisticated and long-range missiles. A well-articulated and informative article.
