Description
The DF-10 is a second-generation of Chinese-made mobile launcher surface-to-surface cruise missile manufactured by the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation Third Academy and the China Haiying Electro-Mechanical Technology Academy. The missile was previously known as the CJ-10 “Long Sword” or DH-10. Foreign media outlets have speculated that China may have acquired the base technology for the DF-10 from the Kh-55 Soviet/Russian subsonic air-launched cruise missile it purchased from Ukraine in the 1990s. The DF-10 is now the world’s most advanced nuclear and conventional ground-based remote cruise missile. The DF-10 makes its first public appearance during the military parade held in 2009 to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.
 
Variants:
- KD-20: the air-to-surface variant of the DF-10. Designed to be launched from the H-6K strategic bomber, the attack range of the KD-20 is estimated at between 2,000 and 2,200 kilometers.
- YJ-100: a subsonic anti-ship missile version of the CJ-10 with a range of 800 km (500 mi; 430 nmi). It can be air-launched by the H-6K bomber and JH-7B fighter bomber, and fired from the vertical launch system of the Type 055 destroyer.

Missile Launch unit
The DF-10 Transporter Erector Launcher (TEL) truck is fitted with a three long launch canisters, of octagonal cross section, mounted on the rear of an 8x8 truck chassis. At the rear of the crew cabin there is fully enclosed cabin which is used by the operators to control all the firing operations.
Missiles
The DF-10 missile has a maximum range of 2,000 kilometers, a circular error probable (CEP) of just 5-10 meters and an operational payload of 450 kilograms, the DF-10 is capable of covering all targets in Taiwan and Japan when fired from inside China. The DF-10 missile can used high explosive warhead or submunitions for attacking fighters on runways and tank columns, nuclear warheads and fuel air explosives. The missile uses both GLONASS and GPS satellite systems for guidance, with four different types of warheads available; a heavy variant weighing 500kg, and three 350kg variants: high explosive blast, submunition and earth penetrator.
Mobility
The DF-10 missile launcher vehicle uses the chassis of the Wanshan WS2400 8x8 military truck. This truck has a front cabin with two doors on each side. The WS2400 is motorized with a Deutz turbocharged diesel engine, developing 517 hp. This engine is produced in China under license. The engine is located behind the cab which is coupled to an ZF automatic transmission. The WS2400 is an off-road tactical vehicle which ran at a maximum road speed of 75 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 650 km. The trucks is also equipped with a central tire inflation system (CTIS) to provide control over the air pressure in each tire of a vehicle as a way to improve performance on different surfaces. Tyre pressure can be adjusted by the driver while the vehicle is on the move. It can climb a 57% slope and cross water up to 1.1 metres deep.
Combat use
The DF-10 is a cruise missile which can be used against terrestrial targets. Cruise missiles are designed to deliver a large warhead over long distances with high accuracy (i.e. small circular error probability). The H-6K bomber can carry 7 KD-20s (the DF-10 air launched variant), giving the Chinese armed forces the ability to reach Pacific targets distant as Hawaii. The Type 052D guided missile destroyer and Type 093A nuclear attack submarines can carry DH-10s (Naval version of the DF-10) in their vertical launch systems; sea-launched DF-10 variant can cover over 90 percent of all global land mass. There is also the YJ-100, an anti-ship variant that will have an onboard radar and 800km range.
