   The DF-100 is a land attack cruise missile system. It was first publicly revealed in 2019. This system was reportedly designed to engage land-based facilities, hardened targets, underground bunkers and large warships, including aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships. Externally it resembles a scaled up version of the DF-10A land attack cruise missile system, but carries more capable missiles. The DF-100 is already in service with the China's military.

   Early reports suggest that this missile has range of around 2 000-3 000 km. It is capable of carrying conventional or nuclear warhead.

   A Transporter-Erector-Launcher (TEL) vehicle with 10x10 configuration carries 2 missiles. This special wheeled chassis has some degree of cross-country mobility. Though it was mainly designed to operate on hard surface roads. A prototype of the DF-100 was based on a larger 12x12 chassis.

   Currently little is known about this new weapon. This article will be updated once more information is available.
