DF-ZF (formerly WU-14) test on 23 November.

Does anyone know what ZF stand for? I guess DF is for Dongfeng, which is relatively obvious.

is "DF-ZF" the designation only of the reentry vehicle or of the whole missle?

Gertz' headline overstates the "confirmation" of the test, but that interview makes it very clear that China is absolutely developing kinetic hit-to-kill technology to take out exoatmospheric targets.

From Google translate:

Quote
Zhou Derong said atmospheric interceptor missile hit a kinetic interceptor missiles, rocket-propulsion systems and as a kinetic kill vehicle warhead composed tremendous kinetic energy generated by means of high-speed flight warhead by direct collision to destroy military targets outside the atmosphere weapons systems, mainly used to intercept ballistic missiles and other military targets, such as satellites. Kinetic energy interceptor missiles outside the atmosphere the key is whether the kinetic kill vehicle to the target height, can accurately capture and targets. There are six key technologies: First rocket propulsion technology, and second, capturing precise steering characteristics of the signal information technology goals, the third is the processing seeker information and high-speed signal processor technology, the four is to determine velocity kinetic kill itself and the attitude of the inertial measurement unit and technology, five are used to calculate kinetic kill vehicle guidance and flight path correction calculation of high-speed data processor and technology, six are making rapid mobility of kinetic kill vehicle attitude and orbit control systems and technology.

Is it about time to give this thread another name?   For example "Chinese sub-orbital launches".

There were rumors of a possible orbital launch from Taiyuan this month.

Except that they never go north-west.  ;)

Yes, but not in this direction.

Maybe it is DF-ZF.
