British edition: North Korea has enough ICBMs with a nuclear warhead to overcome US missile defense

North Korea is capable of crushing US missile defenses, Pyongyang has the necessary number of intercontinental ballistic missiles for this. American experts came to this conclusion after watching the footage of the night parade held in the capital of the DPRK, writes Reuters.

On February 8 this year, a military parade was held in Pyongyang in honor of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People's Army. The parade demonstrated both ICBMs already in service with the North Korean army and promising intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching any part of US territory. At the same time, the number of missiles shown was the largest for the entire existence of North Korea.

According to American experts, the DPRK has already developed a new solid-propellant ICBM capable of striking any part of the United States. A prototype of this missile was also shown at the parade. To date, the number of ballistic missiles in service with Pyongyang is sufficient to break through the existing American missile defense system. Previously, the Americans believed that only Russia and China were capable of this.

That's more ICBM launchers combined than we've ever seen in a North Korean parade (...) This time, Kim Jong-un let tactical and missile forces speak for themselves

- say analysts.

Meanwhile, North Korea continues to develop and test new types of missiles, including ballistic ones. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has said that Pyongyang intends to develop a new intercontinental ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead that will outperform all North Korean missiles.

    The Britons, as always, crap quietly ..., began to draw another threat to the democratic world, the hegemon's national security, while modestly silent that the DPRK's missiles were capable of launching their island to the bottom of the Atlantic .............. ..... And why are we?

      During the entire existence of the DPRK, this peace-loving state has never (I emphasize this a million times for the bloodthirsty Anglo-Saxons) carried out any aggression against any country in the world, which cannot be said about the USA, Great Britain and the rest sang along with the NATO bloc.
      So who is the aggressor after that? fool

        Everything is clear with the states / Britons, at the moment they represent, without exaggeration, the world's evil. It's a shame that we stuck to their sanctions, hiding behind / justifying ourselves with a nuclear non-proliferation treaty

        wrong photo for article
        and I assumed earlier (see my comments) that ours will transfer ICBM technology Topol DPRK
        and here is a PGRK, but not a solid-propellant one, but with a liquid-propellant ICBM with a range of 15000 km, 3 tons of warheads

        START-4 participants: USA, RF, PRC, North Korea, England, France

          wrong photo for article

          Attached to the article is a photo of the Hwaseong-17 with a rocket engine with a range of more than 15000 km, 11 of them passed through the parade and each supposedly carries at least 4 thermonuclear warheads. At the same time, the United States has only 44 anti-missiles. In your photo you have a solid-propellant ICBM with a first-stage engine power of 140 tons and a range of 13000 km.
          and I assumed earlier (see my comments) that ours will transfer ICBM technology Topol DPRK

          Ours were not going to transfer anything, but now there is no need. The policy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation is that only 5 countries - permanent members of the UN Security Council - can legally own nuclear weapons. At the same time, sanctions were imposed against one - the DPRK. The presence of nuclear weapons in Israel, India and Pakistan does not notice the Foreign Ministry point-blank.

    Reuters suddenly became concerned about the security of the United States. Regarding its nuclear weapons, the DPRK has one principle - do not interfere and you will be "happiness". Korea does not send its ships to the American shores, does not climb into Mexico (the underbelly of the United States) and does not set up their neighbors for provocations. So far it's the other way around. Kim Jong-un is doing the right thing by strengthening his nuclear capability and thus preventing even the thought of an attack.

    They just need to work with accuracy. They can't get into Japan anyway.

    It knows better than the entire US, with all its headquarters. And they rejoice at the same time, one less problem than the United States.

    At the parade, 11 Hwaseongpo-17 ICBMs with a rocket engine passed, which were successfully tested twice in 2022 and 5 ICBMs with a turbojet engine that have not yet passed the test. Only a solid fuel engine with a thrust of 140 tons passed the test.
    The Hwaseongpo-17 is the world's largest mobile rocket-propelled ICBM, weighing approximately 100 tons, which has already been successfully tested last year. According to various estimates, its range is about 15 thousand kilometers with 3 tones of payload. It is filled in a horizontal position in a shelter and then it comes out and rises and the launch follows. In this way, it looks like an ICBM with a solid propellant engine.
