  • China will have 1,500 nuclear warheads by 2035, according to the Pentagon.

  • But the Pentagon’s estimate that the PRC will have about 1,500 warheads by 2035 is based on this unproven claim that Beijing “probably” sped up its stockpile building in 2021.

  • “The Pentagon’s research also assumes that Beijing can significantly increase its production of uranium and plutonium that can be used to make weapons.

  • Take the Pentagon’s claim that “the PRC has an arsenal of about 300 intercontinental ballistic missiles.”

  • The Type-096 is a new, more capable SSBN that will be outfitted with the JL-3 long-range missile.
