North Korea holds fifth test of new ballistic missiles


North Korean news TsTAK agency reports that the head of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, personally led the trials of the new weaponswhose name is not given. At the same time, the agency indicates that the "new weapon" was developed taking into account the terrain of the Korean Peninsula and has "advantageous tactical characteristics", which differ significantly from the old types of weapons.

The agency noted that according to the results of the tests, the "new weapon" has confirmed its characteristics, and the DPRK leader Kim Jong-un is "satisfied with the test results." The North Korean leader said missile launches were "a warning to the United States and South Korea in connection with joint military exercises."

Earlier, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported that the DPRK military conducted the fifth launch in two weeks of short-range ballistic missiles. "Shells" were fired towards the Sea of ​​Japan at dawn from a firing range located near the city of Hamhung in the north-east of the country. According to South Korean intelligence, in the vicinity of this city is a military training ground for testing solid-propellant rocket engines.

Recall that North Korea since the end of July this year has been testing short-range ballistic missiles. Earlier, the South Korean and American military, having studied the flight paths of the missiles, said that with a high probability they could overcome the existing missile defense system in South Korea.

      They are silent like a fish on ice. They have nothing to say, they have not yet come up with means against aerobalistic missiles, moreover, they can carry nuclear warheads

          The launch is already the second, in the past the only thing they found to say was that the launch did not threaten them, and this is exactly the opposite, Kim even blurted out something about hanging the militarists on the cradles.

    North Korea has been testing short-range ballistic missiles since the end of this year's tulle
    Trump did not see this as a threat, no matter how hard the Japanese and South Korean "allies" tried to convince him of the opposite. Therefore, AUG are in no hurry to once again visit this region "sparkling with the brilliance of steel." It turns out that Kim Jong-un nevertheless "shod" the American completely and consolidates his success with new tests by spitting on the "power" of the United States, past threats and regular exercises.

    Comrade Kim ... yes, everything is fine with the defense capability of him and his country! And the rest is difficult to make out in that tangle of contradictions. They will sort it out peacefully and on the sly, if only someone does not climb, does not trample everyone's "tails"!

    Kim's submarines are also not bad, and there will not be any "local nuclear war" here, like a bunch of Jews dreaming of nuclear weapons, Kim will star in America and not for the Japanese or South Koreans as they want in the USA

    What are you saying? And since when did the Pukguksong-3 rocket (according to the US classification KN-23) suddenly become aeroballistic? Or did you like the word itself? And as Popandopulo said in "Wedding in Malinovka" - "and the devil only knows, the word is simply beautiful"

    Nobody scares their AUG mi already .. The US president himself comes to the border to personally shake hands ..

    Well, believe the politicians - do not respect yourself. There Adolf shook hands with Molotov, assuring him of the eternal friendship of the Soviet Union and Germany. And how did it end?
    Trump’s war is not needed right now. He has choices on his nose. And then. After that it will be possible to see if the AUGs will scare someone or not ...

    Kim’s submarines are not bad either

    Good? Compared to whom? Compared with the Iranian - yes, not bad, Compared with the Japanese or South Korean - trash. So everything is relative

    Of course well done. But impunity gives rise to enormous conceit and disregard for the desires of neighbors. In short, they can spit

      belay Well, I definitely didn’t expect from you. laughing Vladimir, do you seriously think that these launches are exclusively the whim of the Dear Chairman, obsessed with which, he does what he wants? Come on ... You are not surprised by the clear synchronicity of these launches with the next round of "fun" in relations between the PRC and the United States, and this is not the first time. Everything, forget - time
      the mighty lone villains in world politics have passed. And now even the most reckless frostbite is controlled by someone, cared for and cherished. yes hi

    But what is the name of this rocket if it flies more than 600 kilometers and does not rise above 50 kilometers? When it is reflected in the atmosphere, it rises after decreasing again.

    Alexander! Unfortunately, the experience of recent years shows that Eun periodically "puts" on the opinion of his neighbors, such as Russia and China. All right, only Russia, but China, on which Eun depends almost completely ... After all, last year's statement by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China regarding a possible conflict on the Korean Peninsula is worth a lot.
    Then, after the next tricks with missile launches and a sharp reaction from neighbors (Japan, South Korea, at least), the head of the Chinese Foreign Ministry announced the following (not verbatim, but the essence)
    "The PRC will provide any assistance to the DPRK, including military, if the DPRK becomes a victim of aggression from other countries.
    PRC WILL NOT HELP DPRKif North Korea initiates the conflict "

    China-US Synchronicity? Well now it coincided. And previous launches, in particular launches of the so-called ICBMs? They did not synchronize with China-US relations

    In the best case, it is quasi-ballistic, but not aeroballistic. For the latter implies a start from an aircraft carrier
