DPRK experts are preparing to launch a rocket "Nodon"

16
In the DPRK, preparations are underway to launch a Nodon-type ballistic missile with a range of up to 1,3 thousand km, TASS message channel NHK.




“Mobile launchers with missiles loaded into them are deployed on the shores of the Sea of ​​Japan. The resulting satellite images recorded activity in the area. Japanese experts believe that preparations are underway for launch there, ”the television station said in a statement.

The previous Nodon rocket launched in 2014 also from a mobile unit flew 650 km and fell into the Sea of ​​Japan.

On Tuesday, the DPRK authorities notified the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the maritime organization (IMO) of their intention "to launch an artificial Earth satellite from 8 to 25 in February."

“We received a letter from the DPRK Permanent Mission to the United Nations informing us that they are planning to launch an Earth observation satellite,” said ITU spokesman Sanjay Akariya.

Japan decided to play it safe and sent 3 ships equipped with the Aegis system to the Sea of ​​Japan and South China to track the launch. “In case of a threat to Japan, SM-3 interceptor missiles will be fired from them,” the newspaper notes.

        With all due respect to you, "waving a nuclear saber", in the opinion of our Western "partners", is a trend in Russia. So it's not for us to blame the Koreans for this. For me, let them wave to health, against the background of hundreds of American nuclear weapons surrounding us from all sides, several Korean nuclear weapons - it's not even funny. But let the Japanese get nervous, it's good for them.

        As if Russia DPRK did not have to wet



        In conditions of total superiority of the USA and the West, both Russia (in the process of collecting fragments of the USSR in the EAC) and China (in the process of growth and strengthening) so far cannot openly challenge and openly identify their essentially vassals and allies

        Even the joint exercises of the Chinese and Russian navies in a certain year were bashfully called "anti-terrorist" - as Uncle Sam ordered - the enemies are only terrorists
        True, during the exercises, they worked out the interaction of the Russian and Chinese fleets to counter the amphibious assault of "terrorists" on the Chinese coast. the fight against AUG and submarines, etc.

        Russia was "pushed to the wall" and "brought to the brink" in Syria and Iran - in fact, Russia had to open maps and the whole world can already see. that Iran and Syria are under the Russian "roof"

        The entire Bolivarian Union, all the 9 countries of the Alba - this is the Chinese roof for example - like the DPRK (DPRK both under China and Russia - there would be no China - DPRK would not exist at all for a long time)

        That is, neither China nor Russia will ever have to fight the DPRK - just call and give orders

      It is not clear what the MIM-104 Patriot anti-aircraft missile system has to do with it? The article clearly says - "3 ships equipped with the Aegis system"! These are completely different systems! smile

    The Japanese deliberately distort the truth and whip up hysteria .. Accusing the DPRK .. In fact, the Koreans are not deploying mobile launchers and not on the coast of the Sea of ​​Japan, but a space launch vehicle and it is called not "Nodon" but "Ynha" (Milky Way) in translation from Korean with the satellite "Gwangmyeongseong" (Bright Star) also translated from Korean .. Here is the link:

    The launch is being prepared from the cosmodrome in the north-west of the DPRK not far from the border with China .. That's about it .. But the yapes will simply use the moment to be worn out ..

    so the whole joke is that the Koreans have already provided the trajectory of the proposed flight of the rocket to the relevant international authorities and it will fly in a completely different direction not through Japan but to the south ..))) I wonder how the Japanese will then save face .. they will probably say that "we originally were not going to shoot down and it was just exercises .. "..))))

    Well, if something comes to them, they deserve it .. In general, all neighboring countries and peoples "love" them very much ..))) especially after the Second World War .. Ask, for example, the Chinese how they "love" the Japanese after the Nanking massacre of 1937 for example ... I'm not talking about the Koreans, both northern and southern, after the Japanese occupied them for 40 years from 1905 to 1945 until the Red Army liberated them ..
