North Korean authorities once again demonstrated at a military parade ballistic missile for submarines. It was reported Friday, January 15, the Central Telegraph Agency of Korea
The parade, timed to coincide with the 8th congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea, was held in Pyongyang on Thursday evening. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un hosted the parade at the podium.
“The world’s most powerful weapons, submarine-launched ballistic missiles, appear in the square one by one, demonstrating the power of our revolutionary armed forces,” the report said.
The last time the DPRK held a parade was in October 2020 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Workers’ Party. It showcased a new submarine-launched missile, the Bukkeukson-4A, with an apparently larger size and possibly longer range, as well as a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) without a specific name, carried by an 11-axle rig.
Earlier, on January 9, it was reported that the DPRK authorities intended to develop unmanned aerial vehicles that could carry out reconnaissance flights of up to 500 kilometers range.
