North Korean-Launched Ballistic Missile Reaches Mach 16

51

North Korea fired another unidentified munition. According to the Joint Chiefs of Staff of South Korea, this is the seventh missile test since the beginning of this year.


Pyongyang conducted another test of an unidentified munition, a missile was launched towards the Sea of ​​Japan. According to operational control data, the North Korean military tested a ballistic missile, and given that its speed in some areas reached Mach 16, this is a Hwaseong-12 medium-range ballistic missile. This rocket was first shown and tested in 2017.

The missile launched on Sunday morning from the area of ​​the village of Mupyeong-ri in Chagangdo province in the direction of the Sea of ​​Japan and flew about 800 km, fell into the sea, the maximum flight altitude was 2 km, the South Korean military said in a statement. It is emphasized that the DPRK has not launched such missiles since 2017, observing a voluntary moratorium on ICBM tests.

According to our data, the rocket was launched at an almost vertical angle. Its maximum speed reached Mach 16, that is, it flew 16 times faster than the speed of sound.

- leads news Yonhap agency words of a military source.

Against this background, a telephone conversation took place between the Chief of the Committee of Chiefs of Staff of South Korea, Won In-chul, and the commander of US troops in the country, Paul Lacamera. The parties condemned the ongoing missile tests by North Korea and reaffirmed the agreement on joint defense in the event of an attack by the DPRK.

Meanwhile, South Korea does not rule out that Pyongyang has ended its voluntary moratorium on testing intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons. weaponswhich has been in operation since 2017.

    The first space one is ~ Mach 23.9. And Mach 16 outside the atmosphere, that's the norm. The rocket, as said, is ballistic, that is, transatmospheric.

      I suspect there are no Machs outside the atmosphere. There, the speed of sound is zero, and you cannot divide by zero. No, you can share, of course, but the result will not be exact. yes

        It depends on what you compare it to. Say, for "Iskander" they indicate an apogee of up to 100 km. A very convenient height: there is almost no density of the atmosphere there, but still it is, so you can even talk about some "swings"))

              You didn’t understand - it was launched almost vertically upwards so as not to get into Japan (or not to cross). According to the height of the trajectory and speed (maybe according to some other parameters), potential capabilities are calculated during normal shooting. In our country, according to the same scheme, the RS-26 was tested for 2000 km with the declared 6-6.5 thousand, which gave the Americans a reason to scream about the violation of the INF Treaty.

    and having flown about 800 km, fell into the sea, the maximum flight altitude was 2 thousand km, the South Korean military said in a statement.

    Somewhere there is an error. 2000 km is open space. It is necessary to reach almost 29000 km / h in order to go into space.

      This is an error in your reasoning. 29000 km/h is not the speed of an EVA. This is the minimum (for a given height above the surface of the planet) horizontal velocity that must be given to an object in order for it to move in a circular orbit around the planet. That is, this is not the speed of spacewalking.

      The Koreans did not have a high horizontal component. Otherwise, they might be misunderstood.

      the first space is needed to enter orbit
      if the rocket has insufficient horizontal speed, then it will fall back to the surface of the Earth under the influence of gravity.
      Which is what the rocket launched by the DPRK did.

      To enter orbit, it is necessary to give sufficient horizontal velocity.

      To enter outer space beyond the limits of the force of gravity of the Earth, the rocket must develop a second space velocity (~ 11,2 km / s)

    How is the maximum flight altitude of 2 thousand km. ? ISS at an altitude of only 400 km. flies! It is not logical to take off to such a height to fly 800 km, while the speed of 16 speeds of sound is not sufficient to reach orbit. Do you know what a howl would rise if the rocket flew past the orbit of the ISS!? When Russia shot down the virgin soil satellite at an altitude of 650 km, there was already a howl, and here it was 2 thousand km. Something is wrong in the text, exaggerated as always.

    Everything is fine. They launched a rocket along a hinged trajectory close to the vertical. According to the optimal trajectory, she could go 4500 - 5000 km.
    There was an official message from the TsTAK that they had carried out a training launch to test an already adopted and mass-produced missile. There was a camera on the rocket and there is a photo of the earth.
