China stuns the world, tests new nuclear missile capable of evading early-warning radar

Briefly News also reported China has tested a nuclear missile that can strike from orbit and it does not use the traditional flight paths of ballistic missiles. This new missile is called a fractional orbital bombardment system (FOBS). It can effectively strike America crossing over the South Pole and evade most early-warning systems according to Forbes.

In the past, intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICMBs) have followed a predictable flight path over the North Pole but this latest weapons platform is an international game-changer.

This new flight path effectively allows China to perform a sneak attack. Most of America's ICBM detection systems are orientated towards the northern hemisphere.
