Don't know if this link has been posted before. It is a pretty detailed look at missile defense with about 240 slides of info. Makes for a good reference source (for example the scaled drawings of missiles and interceptors or the engagement arcs of interceptors).

He has a lot of presentations on various technical subjects. One of them contains a large collection of aircraft cutaway drawings from various sources:

Perhaps most significant is Sun’s involvement with the Redesigned Kill Vehicle (RKV) program, an effort to replace the interceptor used by US air defense systems to shoot down incoming ballistic missiles.

The Pentagon cancelled the program last year because of technical problems, but information about the project would still be useful to China to understand what the US might do to defend from conventional or nuclear missiles. Missile technology has become central to Beijing’s strategy to deter US power (Quartz member exclusive) in the Pacific, making up for deficiencies and a lack of experience with weapons systems like jet fighters.
A shame they don't still execute people for this $hit.

Boeing submitted its proposal for the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA) Next-Generation Interceptor (NGI) programme on 12 August. The NGI will be used to maintain ready deterrence and ensure continued protection of US territory from intercontinental ballistic missiles. A contract award is expected later this year.
