UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Since May, North Korea has carried out nine missile launches of three new modifications, Japanese Defense Minister Takeshi Iwai said at a press conference in Tokyo based on the analysis.
“Since May, North Korea launched rockets 9 times. On May 4 and 9, July 25 and August 6, new modifications of rockets were launched, similar to the Iskander missiles that Russia possesses. We believe that these are short-range missiles of a new type on solid fuels, they are different from what North Korea had before, then with regard to the short-range missile, which North Korea calls the “super-large multiple launch rocket system.” It was launched on August 24, and it differs from the aforementioned missile and is a rocket . Crimson-range solid-fuel addition, rockets, issued on August 10 and 16 resemble American ACMS “, – the minister said.
He stressed that final conclusions will require additional analysis, but so far experts are inclined to believe that all the missiles they listed are related to three new types of short-range missiles.
