A DF-26 missile can be used for nuclear or conventional strikes against naval or ground targets. The second missile was a DF-21, which many have stated is the world’s first anti-ship missile. Song Zhongping, a Hong Kong-based military commentator said: “The US continues to test China’s bottom line in Taiwan and South China Sea issues, and this pushed China to showcase its military strength to let Washington know that even US aircraft carriers cannot flex their full muscle near China’s coast.”Both China and the US have increased their presence in the region in recent months.
