Chuxiong - 402 Brigade
As of mid-1995 the DF-21 was deployed at two main operating bases, one in Tonghua near North Korea, and the other at Chuxiong in southern China near the border with Burma. The missiles located at Chuxiong, approximately 100 kilometers west of Kunming, are in range of several targets in India and Southeast Asia.
This facility is headquarters for one of the two launch brigades, each with up to three launch battalions, subordinated to the Second Artillery Corps 80303 Unit, a Division headquartered in the eastern suburbs of Kunming, Yunnan province.
