North Korea has Shocked the world by recently testing an intercontinental ballistic missile . Officials of South Korea have claimed that the North Korean missile is more powerful and
bigger than its earlier missile tests.
The pictures issued by North Korea’s official news agency KCNA also show significant signs about the
missile. The name of this missile is Hwasong-15. North Korea claims that this missile can carry a large
amount of weapons and it can target any part of America.
By the way, the test of the Hwasang series missile has already been done in North Korea, but this time
it is clear from the photographs of the test that this missile has been significantly improved after
the Hwang-14. In the last test, North Korea said that it has made a US missile missile.
Row Jae-Cheon, Joint Chiefs of Staff of South Korean Army, said, “We believe this is a new type of
missile. It looks completely different from Hwassang-14. The front part, the first and the second stage
link and the full size is quite large. ‘ South Korea has said that this launch has proven that North
Korea’s missile program has become quite modern. Private analysts say that Hwassang-15 is big enough
and looks forward to Hwassang-14. Kim Dang-Ub, an analyst of defense affairs at an institution located
in Seoul, said that it seems that North Korea has made an Advance version of Hwosong-14 which can take
the missile to space after the separation of the stage.
Kim said another important thing. He said that there can be two engines in the Hwassang-15, due to
which it has been able to ward off far more than the previous missile. In the Israeli Fisher Institute
for Air and Space Strategic Studies, Space Research’s Chief Tal Inbar agreed on a message on Twitter.
Kim said, ‘This is a new type of missile indeed.’ He said that if the first stage of the missile has literally
two engines, then all the speculation will be removed. Actually, some analysts said that due to
being less explosive, this time North Korea’s Hwassang-15 went far further. Chang Yang-kun, a
missile expert at Korea Aerospace University near Seoul, also said that Hwang-15 was prepared with the
help of two booster engines of Hwang-14. For this reason, it could really make an ICBM.
South Korea’s defense officials say North Korea has more than 160 mobile missile launches and it is
also increasing it. With the help of these vehicles, North Korea can hide their weapons from America’s
missile attack. It can change its location so that the US or its allies can not reach it.
Michael Elman, Missile Expert for International Institute for Strategic Studies, analyzed the pictures
and videos of this missile test. In a report published on Thursday, he said that his analysis says that
North Korea’s missile can carry a substantial quantity of nuclear weapons and bring devastation to any
city in America. Although he also says that North Korea has to do more tests to test the reliability of
According to information given by South Korea President’s Office, in a conversation on the phone call
to US President Donald Trump, President Moon has said that Hwosong-15 is the most successful missile of
North Korea in every way. However, some techniques are yet to be tested.
