All types of the ICBMs will test at least once per year, so does the ASAT/GMD test.
It could very well be it bro! Imagine this:
Day 1: it's like space version of 19th century "sea superiority" or 20th century "air superiority". Earth-to-space direct ascent ASAT, as well as co-orbital ASAT (see blow link), are the main actors here.
Mysterious Actions of Chinese Satellites Have Experts Guessing
Day 2: it's like space version of "sea/air-land warfare", other than supporting ISR and navigation for earth-based weapons, space-to-earth weapons might play a role.
This weapon is a deterrence against aggressors.
That and nuclear warheads.
That test was in fact GMD, but the US claimed it to be ASAT because they wanna keep demonizing China by suggesting that China is always creating more space debris.
Not exactly the ASAT, but the GMD as the US has immediately tested the Trident II missiles after this test.
US wants to spread propaganda that China does ASAT (attacking move) instead of GMD (defensive move) to deter China from doing further tests.
China won't give a damn about US propaganda and will continue to do more tests.
