Expert: In the DPRK are working to create nuclear heads for medium-range missiles and ICBMs

29
North Korean engineers are trying to create nuclear warheads for ballistic missiles, reports Interfax-AVN report of the former Chief of the Main Staff of the Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel-General Retired Viktor Esin.




We can assume that they are striving for this (creating a miniaturized warhead for missiles), and in the future such a nuclear warhead will be installed on Hvason-12 missiles, which are medium-range missiles, and then on Hvason-14 rocket ,
Yesin said on the sidelines of the 10 conference of the International Luxembourg Forum on the Prevention of Nuclear Catastrophe.

With regard to the latter, they demonstrated that this rocket has an intercontinental range,
he noted.

According to the general, "North Korea has mastered the technology of creating a nuclear warhead, its exact mass is not known, but it is approximately considered to be about 1000 kg."

Such an inseparable nuclear warhead - we also had Americans in the first stages - a monoblock warhead with a nuclear charge, so to speak, it can already be used for installation on the Hwason-7 or Nodon-1 missiles,
he said.

What they are experiencing now is more promising long-range missiles, and there is no information about the payload mass,
added Yosin.

    Well, how to stop UN, because he won’t calm down at this stage. You cannot solve the problem with sanctions and threats, you need to sit down at the negotiating table. The problem cannot be solved with one whip.

        The question is why the United States is so concerned about such a small country in which there is no oil.
        What are they afraid of? Until Eun was touched and he did not throw rockets.

      Yes, no matter how you stop him, either at this stage or at all. You will have to get used to living next door to the new nuclear power-DPRK. It doesn't matter if you like it or not, whether you want it or not. Eun and the DPRK will never give up their nuclear weapons to anyone, nor for any so-called "gadgets" promises. It was not for this that they created it with such difficulty and at such a price that it would be so simple to take and give in exchange for some agreements and promises that can always be violated and which, by and large, no one will abide by. And they do not care if you recognize their official nuclear power or not. they are already a nuclear missile power in fact. And all these your “whips” only spur them on and vice versa convince them of the correctness of the path they have chosen to create their own nuclear missile weapons. Something like that.

        By whip, I meant the actions of the United States. There would be no threat if there were no such situation. And we live next door neighbors, if only we would not get anxious from their policies.

          By whip, I meant US actions.

          Then it is necessary for all countries to put pressure together on the USA and not on the DPRK.
          .And our neighbors live nearby, if only we would not get anxious from their policies.

          And here I can tell you only one thing. All the anxiety from their policy is not because these neighbors are so bad, but because the United States behaves towards them like that. And it would be better for your country to somehow come to an agreement with them and, together, somehow calmly and co-ordinate the global hegemon .. And it’s even better to bring China to this, instead of taking sanctions against these neighbors in the UN Security Council ... If together all three countries Russia, China, North Korea will oppose the States, then they will have to restrain their ardor .. That's something like that.

      While there in the West they are discussing all this, the DPRK thinks there are already such charges .. It remains to bring to mind a little !.
      Ah yes Eun here wiped the nose of the United States and its vassals .. Well done! And negotiations will be only after the United States withdraws its bases from the territory of South Korea and Japan and most importantly ceases to threaten and provoke the DPRK! China and Russia support the DPRK, albeit not yet publicly, but all ahead of the gentlemen .. Do not be sad! wassat

    if they could make and test the atomic and hydrogen charges, then they would create a warhead, this is only a matter of the near future, especially since they learned how to launch missiles, that even the Japanese missile defense cannot get them, is it different when the Yusovtsy stop threatening other countries? do they really want to experience the fate of Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

    Yes, Yesin burns not childishly. Such discoveries make ...

    It can be assumed that they are striving for this (the creation of a miniaturized warhead for missiles), and in the future such a nuclear warhead will be installed on Hwason-12 missiles, which are medium-range missiles, and then on the Hwason-14 missile , In relation to the latter, they demonstrated that this missile has an intercontinental range,

    Tests at launch on a “steep” trajectory theoretically really show that these missiles can actually be intercontinental ballistic missiles. But this is purely theoretical. Until there is a missile defense (launches to the maximum range) all this is just theorizing .. Can nuclear charges be placed in the head of the aforementioned missiles? Yeah sure

    According to the general, "North Korea has mastered the technology of creating a nuclear warhead, its exact mass is not known, but it is approximately considered to be about 1000 kg."

    Who counts? Koreans claim that the carrier of nuclear weapons can be happy with their missiles, despite the fact that some have an abandoned weight of about 650 kg. So, unlikely

    Such an inseparable nuclear warhead - we also had Americans in the first stages - a monoblock warhead with a nuclear charge, so to speak, it can already be used for installation on the Hwason-7 or Nodon-1 missiles,

    So inseparable or monoblock?

      Until there are RPMs (launches to the maximum range) all this is just theorizing ..

      For example, “Hwason-12" were launches at almost full range. That second missile that flew over Japan. It was a “Hwason-12" launch range was 3700km. This is almost its full range. As the State Duma deputies recently returned from a trip to the DPRK, even mathematical calculations showed them the upcoming launch of the Hwason-14 ICBM, which shows that it can reach the West Coast of the United States.

      What are unlikely ..? The fact that they have warheads for ICBMs ..? So they just blew it up on September 3. even the photo was of this warhead (most likely a layout) along with the layout under the head fairing of ICBMs.

    “Almost full” and full range are not the same thing. According to Hwason-12, there was information about a range of 4500 km. Will she fly to such a range? Theoretically - yes, practically - it is unknown, for so far it flew only at 3700

    Mathematical calculations are certainly good. there is an empirical formula that for intercontinental-range missiles, when launched “on a steep” path, the apogee is 1/2 of the maximum range. But practice is the criterion of truth. Until the rocket flies to this range - all this is theorizing. I once cited the memory of a former employee of KB "Southern". who said that theoretically rockets of 60 and 61 complexes reached a range of 11-12 thousand kilometers. And everything was fine until there was a launch on PD. There it suddenly became clear that BG burn out in the atmosphere. And I had to redo them. so here. Theoretically, these missiles can reach not only the West Coast. and almost to the "middle" of the United States. But only theoretically ... There were no practical launches on PD, which means that the theory has not yet been confirmed by practice

    Sorry. The failure was a computer and did not finish the phrase to the end. It is unlikely that YaBZ has a mass of about 1000 kg. Surely less, because well-known performance characteristics of Korean missiles say that in most cases their standard warhead is about 650 kg in mass.

      In principle, for this missile, a range of even more than 3700 km is enough. with such a range, she calmly finishes off to all major American bases in the region. And this is her main and main purpose. As for the Hwason-14, I think, but I’m pretty sure that such launches at full or near full range are still ahead ..

      Yes, it’s as if Yesin’s phrase about the mass of a North Korean warhead of 1000 kg bothers me too. judging by the photo and the mass dimensions of the warhead there is a mass of not more than 500-600 kg, if not less ..

    Nevertheless, at first there were missile launches and then the state hitting. Then what threatened Eun in the spring before rocket launch? Yes, nothing like since when they liberated Korea, which since 1910 was occupied by the Japanese. The war in Korea provoked North Korea to conquer the south.
    The Japanese were the warriors. But they learned from the past and renounced the aggressive course. Such a small Japan raped such a big China. Yes, and they did not pile on the Americans at one time. How many young people volunteered to go to kamikaze. This is not only aircraft but also submarine torpedoes guided by live gunners. The Japanese are warriors and the Koreans are so stupid. In the 50s, the Union and China saved the DPRK. Now Japan lives peacefully and does not even think about nuclear weapons despite the threats of the DPRK. So is South Korea. Samsungs are the best smartphones. The DPRK has an older brother, China, and a defense. And there and there, the Communist Party in power

    Yes, he’ll get to Guam, that’s not a doubt. The question is in a slightly different plane - what is the payload. It is known, for example, that in one of the test launches, when she reached the maximum height, her load was 150 kg. What load she flew with is unknown.
    Most likely, of course, there will be more launches of the Hwason-14, and it is likely that at the maximum range

    If we turn to the previous version of this missile - Hwason-10 "or" Musudan. Then the EMNIP with a load of 1,2 tons could fly 2000 km, from a 1-ton - 2500, from 650 kg to 3600 and from 400 kg - for 4500 km. so it’s worth counting on 400-650 kg, but not 1 ton

        Firstly, it was not some kind of promise, secondly it did not come off personally from Un. This was said by the North Korean Foreign Minister after Trump’s speech at the UN General Assembly, as one of the alleged options for the DPRK’s response in response to Trump’s threat there to completely destroy the DPRK. I myself watched this television broadcast and saw and heard the words of this minister on television. At the same time, this ministry immediately said that Eun himself would decide what exactly they would do. And all the media, as always, turned this statement around in meaning.

          The rocket was discussed in detail ...

          We then discussed the missile ... But the possibility of intercepting it .. But it is not so simple ... Here is the news. Anonymous survey of American sailors:
          https://ria.ru/world/20171011/1506588763.html
          Sailors of the Shylo cruiser of the Seventh Fleet of the United States Navy, whose area of ​​responsibility includes the western part of the Pacific Ocean and the eastern part of the Indian, complained in an anonymous survey conducted by the Navy Times about poor conditions of service and low combat efficiency of the ship.
          The military personnel participating in the survey stated the helplessness of the leadership, the brutal attitude of the commanders, as well as thoughts of suicide. “Something terrible will happen, it's just a matter of time,” one of the sailors admitted.
          "I pray that we do not have to shoot down a North Korean rocket, otherwise everyone will see our inefficiency," another said, calling his ship a "floating prison."

          In addition, the crew talked about overwork, inadequate training and the long wait for ship repairs. At the same time, they noted that sailors are often afraid to complain, fearing punishment from the commanders.
          "This is a race. We are competing with our ship, who will break earlier," one of the respondents said

          Some mood of the American sailors is not fighting ... I do not see optimism and confidence in victory .... With this mood, it’s better for them not to get involved in the war ...

    Vitalik, are you really so naive? Put yourself in the place of the Americans, and any country in the place of the DPRK.

To do this, we offer them to negotiate. And they are us

    3. Stop helping Syria
    4. Remove all Caliber missiles from the ships of the Caspian Flotilla by dismantling the launchers from the ships.

    You wrote correctly - BEFORE. But not now. And we like it or not, but after that, in particular, the Bank Treaty and the Rarotong Agreement were concluded, which are executed, including by the Americans. And a test ban agreement in three environments. Also executable. And if Eun decides on such a test, I’m afraid the problems will not be with the “striped”, as they say here, but with him ...
