|Commercial satellite images show work underway at scores of sites across a grid covering hundreds of square miles of arid terrain in China’s Gansu province, said researchers at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Monterey, Calif.|
The 119 nearly identical construction sites contain features that mirror those seen at existing launch facilities for China’s arsenal of nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missiles. The actual number of new missiles intended for those silos is unknown but could be much smaller. China has deployed decoy silos in the past.
