The Dongfeng-17 is China's solid-fuelled, road-mobile Short-range ballistic missile that mounts the DF-ZF Hypersonic Glide Vehicle. The DF-17's hypersonic armament gives China significant leverage over current conventional ABM's due to the glide vehicle's unpredictable ballistic trajectory. The DF-17 was officially unveiled at the China Day military parade on October 1st, 2019, making this China's first operational hypersonic weapon system. Courtesy Wikipedia
