North Korea Tested Nuclear-Capable Medium Range Ballistic Missile - Photos, Videos

North Korea announced on Monday it had successfully test-fired a medium- to long-range ballistic missile on Sunday.

The missile known as “Pukguksong-2” flew 500 km before crashing in the Sea of Japan. The Pukguksong-2 is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

Intermediate-range ballistic missiles typically have a range of 3,000 to 5,500 kilometers. US and South Korean sources estimate that Pukguksong-2’s range is up to 2,000 km.

For example, this is enough to target US military sites in Japan.

Given the rapid advancement of Russian troops into Korea, its understandable that they would want to have all their weapons tested.
