notes"The Dong Feng-11 (DF-11) is a road-mobile, nuclear-capable, short-range ballistic missile (SRBM) developed by the People’s Republic of China (PRC). A solid-fuel SRBM launched from a transporter erector launcher (TEL), the DF-11 can be launched with roughly 30 minutes of preparation and can reach ranges up to 300km. While the DF-11 has an estimated accuracy of 200m CEP, the PRC is reportedly working to increase its accuracy to 30 CEP by 2020 through the addition of Global Positioning System (GPS) and laser guidance systems."

notes"Extended Range: 500-600 km An improved variant of the DF-11, the DF-11A offers an increased range, larger payload, and improved accuracy. Development began in 1993, and its existence was first reported in 1998. The DF-11A measures 8.5 m in length and weighs approximately 4,200 kg. It can carry a 500 kg payload over a reported range of 500-600 km. Front fins are not located on the warhead assembly like those on the first DF-11 variant. Chinese developers added satellite navigation, improving the missile’s accuracy to 150-200 m CEP. Unconfirmed reports suggest that an optical correlation terminal guidance system was later fitted, which would further improve the accuracy to 20-30 m CEP. The DF-11A conducted its first test flight in 1997, and it entered service with the PLA Second Artillery Corps in 1999."
