North Korea: Unveiling new submarine launched missile

Recently, New Korea unveiled a new kind of submarine that was launched as a ballistic missile. The best thing about this launch is that it is described as the most powerful weapon in the world by the state media. A lot of missiles were displayed at a parade that was overseen by Kim Jong-un, the leader. The actual capabilities of the weapon remain unclear and it is not known to get through the taste yet. The show of the military strength has come before a few days of inauguration of the US president, Joe Biden. It even follows a rare political meeting where Mr Kim had decried the US as the biggest enemy of his country. 

The images who have been released by the North Korean state media have shown at least 4 large black and white missiles that were being driven by the flag waving crowds in the past. Ankit Panda, the North Korea expert has tweeted using the North Korean name for their submarine launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) tweeted, “New Year, new Pukguksong.” The analysts said that it was a previously unseen weapon. Mr Kim is shot smiling and waving while he was clad in a leather coat and a fur hat as he watched the display in Pyongyang’s Kim Il Sung Square that even included artillery, tanks along with infantry troops. 

The event that was held on Thursday didn’t showcase the largest intercontinental ballistic missile of North Korea which unveiled at a much larger military parade in the month of October. This colossal weapon was believed to deliver a nuclear warhead in the US, and the size of the weapon had surprised a lot of seasonal analysts too when it was put on the show in the earlier year. Mr Kim pledged to expand the military and nuclear weapons potential during his address to the members in the past week, thereby outlining a list of desired weapons. 

The official Korean Central News Agency said, “The world’s most powerful weapon, submarine-launch ballistic missile, entered the square one after another, powerfully demonstrating the might of the revolutionary armed forces.” He further said that the US was Pyongyang’s “biggest obstacle for our revolution and our biggest enemy… no matter who is in power, the true nature of its policy against North Korea will never change”.
