South Korea postponed development of its own anti-bunker missiles for four years


According to the publication, initially the development and deployment of these tactical missiles was planned to be completed in 2019 year. However, the delay in negotiations with the American side on South Korea’s access to the GPS global positioning system and a reduction in the corresponding budget for the next year made their corrections to these plans, the newspaper notes.

The Republic of Korea began developing ground-to-ground anti-bunker missiles in 2013. In the event of an armed conflict with North Korea, they are supposed to destroy the fortified positions of North Korean artillery concentrated in the inter-Korean border area and posing a direct threat to Seoul. The range of the missiles will be about 120 km, transmits TASS.

    The adoption of the South Korean guided anti-bunker missiles Korea Bunker Buster postponed for four years.

    So either war is not yet in sight, or have decided so far to get by with American counterparts.

    Indeed, why would they develop anti-bunker missiles if they have developed an atomic blank for YONA.

    they rely on mattresses and their "mother of all bombs" ... and even for deploying their missiles, it seems that the Yankees robbed them ...

    And why do they need their missiles if the opposition is already with an outstretched hand at the doors of the United States - place nuclear weapons with us. Ushlepok (in contrast to the DPRK), who forgot how the Japanese destroyed them, I want to extend the reign of the new owner. And will the Americans bring peace and blessing now?
