China Successfully Tests 'Carrier Killer' Missile In The Gobi Desert

• Business Insider

The China Times is a 63 year old Taiwanese paper slightly slanted toward unification, but with a soild reputation and accurate reporting.

The Times report originates with a Google Earth image published at SAORBOATS Argentinian internet forum.

The photo shows two big craters on a 600 foot platform deep in China's Gobi desert that Chinese military testers used to simulate the flight deck of an aircraft carrier.

There has been talk of the DF-21 for years with estimates of its range, threat, and theater changing implications, but this could be the first known test of the rocket.
