North Korean leader Kim Jong-un spoke at the event
On Saturday, October 10, during a massive parade in Pyongyang, North Korea demonstrated a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
It is reported by Sky News.
According to the newspaper, the parade took place at night before dawn and was timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the “Workers’ Party of Korea”. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un made a speech at the event.
South Korean agency Renhap noted that the new missile was transported on a 22-wheeled carrier, while another Hwaseong-15 ICBM was transported on an 18-wheeled carrier.
Military experts in Seoul point to the increased size of the new missile, which indicates its ability to carry more useful weight: multiple warheads, additional decoys, and means of overcoming missile defense.
Besides her, the Pukkykson-4A rocket was demonstrated at the event. According to preliminary data, it can be launched from submarines.
We will remind you, the images of the shipyard in North Korea, taken from the satellite on September 4, showed some activity, which could indicate the preparation of tests of a medium-range ballistic missile launched from a submarine.
Previously, Kim Jong-un argued that North Korean nuclear weapons are aimed at self-defense, but stressed that “the fight against enemies has been going on since the Korean War and that pressure from the imperialists has also increased.”
