China "Steps Up War Preparations" With Hypersonic Missile Deployment Across From Taiwan

China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) has reportedly deployed hypersonic missiles across from Taiwan, Hong Kong media reported on Sunday, sparking concern about war preparations.

The South China Morning Post, citing anonymous military observers and sources, said missile bases along Southeast China were "upgraded" with Dongfeng-17 (DF-17) hypersonic missiles.

"The DF-17 hypersonic missile will gradually replace the old DF-11s and DF-15s that were deployed in the southeast region for decades," the source said. "The new missile has a longer range and can hit targets more accurately."

Hypersonic missiles give China significant leverage over Taiwan's anti-ballistic missile shield due to the glide vehicle's unpredictable ballistic trajectory - suggesting Taipei is powerless against a DF-17 attack.
