The company did not go into details about the technologies used, saying only that the move was requested by the People's Liberation Army. A picture published with the article shows some people wearing respirators working on shells that were later installed as a shield on the vehicles' wheels.

Gao Zhuo, a military observer in Shanghai, said missile specialists would be able to calculate the weight of a missile and its warhead if they could examine the transporter vehicles' wheels.

In addition to the wheels, the PLA must have used stealth technologies on the missiles and the transporter vehicles to reduce the number of identifiable features on the weapons, he added.

The DF-26 is a Chinese-made medium-to-long-range ballistic missile. The DF-26, based on the DF-21, is nicknamed the “Guam Killer” as its range of about 3,500-4,000 km is roughly the distance required for China to take out the US island territory and strategic naval base.
