  1. Is there such a thing as a Chinese ballistic missile, attached to unmanned jet wings, that detaches and then takes out say, some sort of military installation, with the use of satellite navigation. Maybe even an aircraft carrier ? It could look alittle like the Branson space project - a long range exercise missile.
