Tongdao [Shuangjiang] - 405 Brigade
Tongdao is one of five location at which a total of between 10 and 20 DF-4s were deployed as of early 1998. This facility apparently is the location of DF-5 ICBMs deployed in the mid to late 1990s.
The facility is headquarters for two of the three launch brigades, each with up to three launch battalions, subordinated to the Second Artillery Corps 80305 Unit, a Division headquartered in the remote western Hunan provincial city of Huaihua. Presumably, the second of these Brigades was created in association with the deployment of the DF-5 ICBMs.
