According to a report from Russian Military Analysis , the only way to defeat the DF-21D ballistic missile may be through electronic countermeasures. The Dong-Feng 21D, is People's Liberation Army Navy's supersonic anti-ship ballistic missile with a a top speed of Mach 10 and a range of 1,450 kilometers.

Russian Military Analysis report explains that air defense system can be used to intercept high-speed flying objectives, as the USS Lake Erie, a Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser, successfully destroyed malfunctioning spy satellite USA-193 with a RIM-161 Standard Missile 3 about 247 km above the Pacific in 2008; however, the report also noted that Lake Erie had an abundance of information regarding the trajectory of the satellite.

Lacking sufficient knowledge about the launch point of the missile, the only way to defeat the DF-21D is through electronic countermeasures which would allow the United States Navy a chance to evade the attack by changing the ballistic trajectory of the missile. There remains no other way for a US aircraft carrier to defend itself from an attack by the DF-21D, the report said.
