interceptor missile test

China has successfully carried out its second interceptor missile test as part of its efforts to build a missile shield to intercept incoming warheads. As per reports, the Chinese missile can intercept an incoming ICBM with a range of more than 7,000 km or mid-range missiles with a range of 4,000 to 5,000 km at an altitude of more than 100 km. China claims that the interceptor missile is superior to the U.S.’ Patriot missile because it can destroy incoming missiles at a higher altitude and greater speed. The Patriot system destroys incoming missiles at an altitude of only 15 km.
