DPRK Air Force aircraft launched anti-ship missiles towards the Sea of ​​Japan

North Korea continues to test weapons under development. According to the committee of chiefs of staff of South Korea, on Tuesday the DPRK launched several anti-ship cruise missiles of the "air-ground" type.


According to the tracking, the North Korean military launched several missiles, presumably anti-ship, in the waters of the Sea of ​​Japan. The launch of air-to-ground missiles was carried out by combat aircraft from the airspace of North Korea. Missiles, flying about 150 km, fell in the waters of the Sea of ​​Japan.

Starts were made by North Korean Air Force fighters in the area of ​​the coastal city of Munchon at 07:00 a.m. (01:00 Moscow time). Missiles flew about 150 km and fell into the water

- the report says KNS.

Seoul emphasized that the republic’s armed forces maintain a high level of preparedness while continuing to monitor the situation and possible new missile launches.

Note that this launch of missiles by North Korea is already the fifth since the beginning of this year. The previous launch was on March 29th. According to a recent CTC report, the North Korean military was testing a new large-caliber, multiple-charge MLRS launcher.

      Air-to-ship anti-ship missiles. And according to your version, apparently earth-to-earth?
      They made a mistake only with the plane, by the way, some of the old IL-28s are adapted to deal with submarines and surface ships of the empirialists ...
      WIKI:
      Rockets are divided into classes - “Ground-to-ground”, “ground-to-air”, “air-to-ground”, “air-to-air”, Air-to-ship (refers to the more general air-to-surface class) etc.

      I remember my neighbor as a child gave me a thick book to read "Rockets and Artillery", there, in a tabular form, all the missiles by class and subclass were indicated ...

    RCC - a special case of air-to-ground missiles - no mistake.

    Americans didn’t make Koreans play by their own rules, but now they’re not at all up to them.
    Whether they have a virus or not, no one is up to date, but there are definitely missiles and they fly.

    DPRK Air Force aircraft launched anti-ship missiles towards the Sea of ​​Japan

    And where else should they "shoot". They have two options: the Japanese Sea and the Yellow Sea.
    But they share the Yellow Sea with China!

    "Following the supreme commander-in-chief comrade Kim Jong-un, scientists, engineers and the working class of the military industry have achieved success in the development of a new type of anti-ship missiles at a high technological level."
    It looks like they are modernizing the UNIVERSAL anti-ship missile system Kh-35 (Uranus).

    Glad for North Korean friends.
    They have no partners. There are friends and there are enemies. And a combat ready army.

      Combat readiness compared to which army?
      I advise you to read the book "The Last Fortress of Stalin" (inexpensive, somewhat outdated data, and if you do not take to heart some "anti-Sovietism" of the author of the book, interesting reading), but if you look at the staff structure of the KPA, it repeats the structure of the Red Army before the Second World War ...
      Many PD / PBr. do not even have a motor vehicle ....

    Or the information goes under the heading "sov.secret", as at one time there were closed (and now too) losses from the catastrophic famine in the 90s ...

    It is possible that the launch was made during the inspection of the fighter-assault air regiment Kim Jong-un

    And they have been testing it for the fifth year. They call them Kumsong-3. According to the western classification - KN-19
