DongFeng 21 (CSS-5) Medium-Range Ballistic Missile DF-21 (CSS-5) Medium-Range Ballistic Missile DF-21A MRBM System in service with the PLA Second Artillery Corps (Chinese Internet) The DongFeng 21 (DF-21, NATO code name: CSS-5) is a two-stage, solid-propellant, single-warhead medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM) system developed by China Changfeng Mechanics and Electronics Technology Academy (also known as 2nd Space Academy). Developed from the JuLang 1 (JL-1) submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), the DF-21 was originally intended for strategic missions but its later variants were designed for both nuclear and conventional missions. The latest DF-21D was said to be the world’s first and only anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM) system. The DF-21 has also been developed into space launcher and anti-satellite/anti-missile weapon carrier. http://www.sinodefence.com/strategic/missile/df21.asp
