01 August 2017

South Korea’s Ministry of National Defense (MND) has reacted to Pyongyang’s latest test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) by releasing video footage of a tactical ballistic missile system that is stated to be under development by the country’s Agency for Defense Development (ADD).

Released on 28 July the video shows two missiles being fired in rapid succession from a static launching platform that can hold up to four such missiles. One of the missiles can be seen accurately hitting a simulated target, while the other one is shown destroying what appears to be a bunker structure. The MND did not disclose when or where the test-firing took place.
