South Korea has successfully test-launched a new version of Hyunmoo-2B ballistic missile with its flight range extended from 500 to 800 km. This range enables the missile to reach anywhere in North Korea, defense sources in South Korea said.
After years of negotiation, South Korea and the United States have reached an agreement in support of extending the reach of the South’s ballistic missiles. Under this agreement, Seoul will be allowed to deploy ballistic missiles with a range of 800 kilometers bringing all of North Korea within striking range of the South’s missile arsenal.
In response to the failed April 13th North Korean attempt to launch a satellite using a long-range ballistic missile, South Korea released a video showing launches of unidentified cruise missile and a ballistic missile, likely to be the latest versions of the Hyunmoo family, indigenously developed in South Korea.
