North Korea once again launched two "unknown shells" from the Hamgen-Namdo province towards the Sea of ​​Japan. It is reported by South Korean news Ronhap agency, citing the Joint Chiefs of Staff.


DPRK made the seventh launch of "unknown shells"


The DPRK launched two "unknown shells" that were launched early in the morning at 6: 45 and 7: 02 local. vr. from Hamgyong-namdo province towards the Sea of ​​Japan. According to data obtained by the South Korean military, they covered a distance of 380 km, after which they fell into the sea. The maximum flight altitude was 97 km.

Our military monitors the situation in case of additional launches

- said in a statement to the Joint Headquarters Committee of South Korea.

As suggested in Seoul and Tokyo, Pyongyang is testing new ballistic missiles. North Korea itself does not comment on these launches, although this launch was already the seventh in a row since July 25. At the sixth launch, "unidentified shells" flew "all" 230 km towards the Sea of ​​Japan, but at the same time in some sections of the flight their speed reached 6,1 Mach number.

All launches are carefully studied by the American and South Korean military. Already after the first launch, which took place on July 25, specialists from the United States, having studied the trajectory of the missiles launched by the DPRK, came to the conclusion that they are very likely to overcome the current Korean missile defense system.

    So Trump played along the DPRK border with his rattles (AUG) and merged.
    Nuclear weapons and rockets rule!
    If Saddam and Gaddafi had such missiles and nuclear weapons - to this day they would live and live.

            One can distract from this topic only by a real war. yes And the huckster, as they say, is specifically driven on the topic, simultaneously knocking out 2 percent from the non-Vikings into the common fund. I would not be surprised if in the European lobbies they already call him "Donya-2%" laughing hi

          There is such a suspicion, especially when recently Trump personally arrived at the border with the DPRK and shook hands with Un. good

    According to open sources, today the Korean People’s Army (KPA) has two artillery corps and about thirty artillery brigades for various purposes as part of its ground forces. Pyongyang has at its disposal about 4,5 thousand self-propelled guns, 3,5 thousand towed guns and more than 2 thousand multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS). Military experts estimate the entire KPA artillery fleet at 10,5 thousand units, which formally makes it one of the strongest in the world.
    The vast majority of these weapons is concentrated on the border with South Korea - about 8 thousand guns and MLRS. From the border to Seoul - just a stone's throw, about 24 kilometers, - a military expert, retired colonel Mikhail Tymoshenko told RIA Novosti. “There are 20 million people living in the Seoul metropolitan area.” And no nuclear bomb is needed to make a catastrophe.
    Together with nuclear weapons, tactical, strategic, with the ability to reach Japan and US bases, Korea is the most dangerous enemy. A nuclear strike on Korea is impossible due to the proximity of Japan, South Korea, China and Russia.

    Well, it's not for nothing that the Jews after the Second World War so much money swelled into "prosperity" and into the "Japanese economic miracle of the 60s-70s" - now, for any reason, South Koreans and Japanese women should become human shields in the cherished local small atomic war and pay with their skins for this is the miracle

    In terms of progress in rocketry, North Korea is ahead of the rest. This required: a strict regime, excellent intelligence, corrupt Ukrainian-Russian specialists (is it worth condemning?) And a rich Soviet legacy. Well done Koreans! "And what will happen to the Motherland and us ..."?

    Well, the total product is much larger. All types of artillery, including towed and self-propelled systems, mortars and MLRS, there are about 21100. But as you correctly wrote, formally make one of the strongest. Formally, by the number of systems.
    For example. Of the 5100 MLRS, more than 4000 have a 107-mm caliber and a firing range of 8 km. The same goes for artillery. Large-caliber long-range artillery is extremely small.

    Well, of course, it's not far from Seoul. The Seoul metropolitan area is indeed 24 km from the DMZ. Seoul itself is a little further, about 40 km. But the number of systems able to reach Seoul is also falling. After all, 24 km is the closest point. KPA artillery positions are located 5 kilometers north of the DMZ. That is, the total distance to the borders of the agglomeration is already growing up to 30 km. And the number of systems capable of reaching these boundaries is decreasing. In fact, only the 170 mm Koksan artillery systems deployed there are capable of shelling Seoul to its full depth. But ... But there are less than 40 of them, besides, the rate of fire is 1 shot in 2 minutes. It is also possible to strike with MLRS of 240 mm caliber. But they are even further from the DMZ. The damage, of course, will inflict on Seoul, but the disaster is unlikely to happen
    The Koreans (the North Koreans) will of course get to Japan and the US bases, maybe with nuclear weapons. And why is it suddenly impossible to strike the DPRK with nuclear weapons ?: What prevents this from being done. here the military expert of RIA "Novosti" slightly bent
