The latest JL-3 rocket was tested from a Jin-class nuclear-powered submarine from Bohai Bay (northwestern Yellow Sea) on Sunday, December 22. The start was recorded by American intelligence satellites, which tracked the missile throughout the flight in a westerly direction.

Other launch details are not reported. The publication indicates that the tests were conducted against the backdrop of reports that US intelligence expects the launch of long-range missiles in the DPRK.

In November last year, China successfully conducted the first test of a ballistic missile submarine (SLBM) Julong-3 (JL-3). The projectile was created on the basis of an intercontinental ballistic missile ground-based DF-41. It is compared with the American Trident II D-5 missile and the Russian P-30 Bulava-30. The maximum range of SLBMs is 14 thousand kilometers.
