    That's how easy and simple everything is with them! Take hypersound on your knee! Someone has been suffering for years, exhausting billions of dollars, and someone has studied the quotation book of Kim Il Sung and ... it's done! Probably the rice diet helps
    You can't blame Ukraine anymore, the direction of the tunnel is north-west (or a branch to the Chinese Beijing-Moscow)

    so the radars determine the speed of the target for a long time. And then they saw the target, but did not determine the speed.

      Too nimble a target to see it turned out, quickly slipped. wink

    In fact, in the East, they objectively assess their achievements. My acquaintances assured that their Air Force could only withstand the Taiwan Air Force since 2010, when they received J-10 and J-20.

    Somehow S. Korea fell out of sight of the former Soviet Military Bloc. He has been sitting for several decades, such a world outcast. However, in the event of exacerbations, he SUDDENLY reveals a modern weapon of MASS defeat. It seems to me that if S. Korea BANGS across Guam, then the United States will roll it into the asphalt. But then you will have to follow S. Korea and South Korea. Eh ... it’s not funny, but such are the realities. But, and with S. Korea, bribes are smooth, what to take from him ... a tyrant and a dictator. But it seems to me that S. Korea is sitting on the leash of China, which throws the necessary developments to her at the right time.

      The DPRK was not part of the Soviet military bloc. Since the end of the 50s, it has pursued a policy of equidistance and, at the same time, cooperation with the USSR and the PRC. She managed to maintain good relations with these giants even in the late 60s and early 70s, in the midst of the Soviet-Chinese confrontation.
