The North Korean authorities have once again demonstrated a ballistic missile for submarines at a military parade. This was announced on Friday, January 15, by the Central Telegraph Agency of Korea (CTAC).
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 received the parade on the podium.
“The world’s most powerful weapon, ballistic missiles for submarines, appear on the square one after another, demonstrating the might of our revolutionary armed forces,” the statement said.
The DPRK last held a parade in October 2020 in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Labor Party. It featured the new Pukkykson-4A submarine missile, with a clearly increased size and possibly longer range, as well as a new nameless intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) carried by an 11-axle launcher.
Earlier, on January 9, it was reported that the DPRK authorities intend to develop unmanned aerial vehicles that can carry out reconnaissance flights with a range of up to 500 km.
