US and Japan accuse North Korea of ​​testing ICBM

51

North Korea's new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test is a "serious escalation" and the US administration has concluded that a new ICBM system developed by Pyongyang was involved in its launch. This was stated by the official representative of the US Department of Defense John Kirby.


According to the Pentagon, the DPRK conducted two recent launches of missiles, which, according to one version, were intended to launch satellites into space. But U.S. intelligence says North Korea is actually testing a new intercontinental ballistic missile. It is assumed that it can reach the Pacific coast of the United States, not to mention the island of Guam and the island state of Florida.

The US military claims that the first time the DPRK showed the latest ICBM at the parade in honor of the Workers' Party of Korea on October 10, 2020. The missile was then seen at a military-technical exhibition in 2021. The Pentagon believes that the task of the current tests is to determine the capabilities of the new missile, in order to then carry out a full-fledged launch.

In addition to the United States, Washington's regional allies Japan and South Korea also expressed their concern about the new missile launches. Thus, the Japanese military department condemned the North Korean ICBM tests, calling them a way to increase tension in the region. Tokyo claims that North Korean missile launches threaten the security of the region and the world as a whole.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida noted that the missile launched by North Korea is clearly an intercontinental and ballistic missile. This indicates that the DPRK does not abandon its strategy, therefore, Japan must increase its security, the head of the Japanese government stressed. According to the Japanese side, this time the rocket flew over 300 kilometers.

This is a clear threat to Japan's security.

- from the statement of the official representative of the Japanese Cabinet.

The National Security Council under the President of the Republic of Korea also deplored the missile launches. The South Korean authorities believe that the efforts of Seoul and Washington to minimize the risks associated with the resumption of the North Korean missile program did not bring the desired result.

Russia noted that they understand the policy of the DPRK, since the refusal to test missiles did not lead to the desired effect: the United States only continued military activity in the region, and therefore Pyongyang is forced to take care of its security as it sees fit.

As you know, not so long ago, the DPRK returned to missile tests. This has prompted an increase in US intelligence activity in the region, as the US military is now trying to gather as much information about missile launches as possible. It is known that the national media in North Korea interpret the launches as a way to put North Korean communications satellites into orbit. Kim Jong-un, according to official information, gave the appropriate instruction to speed up the preparation of a rocket for launching space satellites.

      It’s a little unclear why we still have some cool relations with the UK? The enemy of my enemy is my friend. No, of course, you should not throw yourself into the arms, but the exchange of goods could well be increased. Maybe there is nothing special to take from them, but why not replace gasters from Central Asia with North Koreans? And discipline will be at construction sites and responsibility. And to raise the qualifications of workers to the level of the same Kyrgyzstan is a simple matter. I am generally silent about the mutual penetration of cultures.

          I do not think that the entire range of goods in the UK comes from China. Our wheat, for example, can be bought by both states without prejudice to each other's interests. And it is unlikely that China will be against it if a couple of tens of thousands of North Korean workers go to extract their country's currency (by the way, the ruble also falls into this category) at construction sites in Russia.

    The Yankees are still left with the North. Korea to take a shit overhaul and the set will be complete.
    And the highly respected and promising First Comrade Eun - he will not be sold for candy wrappers. If it does, it can really bang on the Yankees.
    And for raids - yes, they don’t give a shit there in their North. Korea wanted the Yankees and their claims - they will continue to do their job and that's it.
    They would have to throw in a couple of technical ideas so that they make a little progress on a number of issues - for the Yankees, that seat will sweat completely. And the Japanese do too. In an instant they will forget to moan about the islands - they will take care of another problem right away.

      The main thing in these tests is not the range, but the maximum launch height, so to speak - "run in width". But accuracy questions remain.

              These Americans always mess up something ...)))
              When firing at a range of 8000 km, the maximum height of the trajectory is 1270 km. The method for determining the maximum range for shooting vertically upwards is not known to me in detail, but it is used everywhere.

                the main idea of ​​launching an intercontinental missile is at least to rise to a height of 45-70 km, in fact, a low orbit, they rarely let go higher. Then the rocket flies in a circle for as long as necessary with almost no atmospheric resistance and dives back. There are no trajectories like a projectile, no heights of hundreds of kilometers. So, the Koreans are now storming heights for missiles of 15-20 km in order to go beyond the defeat ceiling of the American missile defense system and increase the range, but this is still not an intercontinental trajectory. This is the level of pershing that flies 2.5k km.

                    wiki: the apogee of the trajectory is up to 1000 km, but this does not mean that ICBMs fly like this now, such a trajectory requires a lot of energy and a heavy carrier, which is expensive to operate
                    the same poplar flies along a flat trajectory.

                        A young man, specifically, climbs higher when shooting at maximum range. When firing along a "flat" trajectory, a large energy consumption is required and the range is reduced. Well, learn a little (a little essence) and the need for a "discussion" will disappear by itself.

                        depends on the specific trajectory. If the rocket flies at altitudes up to 40 km, the energy costs will be higher, if you shoot at 500, they will also be more, and if you choose a more efficient one between them, they will decrease. You, from the height of your unreasonable arrogance, for some reason decided that I was talking exclusively about some kind of nonsense. If you continue to behave this way, it will already be an insult, because I am not an artilleryman, but I also did not pass by the physics department and I know about ballistics not only from the primer. And if I affirm, then I mean a specific physical model of the rocket's behavior. You probably think that if the rocket flew out of the atmosphere, then it is no longer necessary to push it in order to raise the trajectory. This is not entirely true - either you are accelerating the rocket hard at launch to get enough inertia energy or you will have to push further. Both in low orbit and in high orbit, in both cases, energy is wasted and it is impossible, like you, to say from a high that there is little type - there is a lot. It must be calculated from specific parameters. I ask you about them, and in response you post your arrogance, not answers.
