    The test of the North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile "Hwaseon-15"

    On the night of November 28 to November 29, 2017, the DPRK successfully tested a new intercontinental ballistic missile named Hwaseon-15. The first demonstrated Hwaseon-15 missile was launched from the launch pad, transported on the first-shown self-propelled wheel conveyor with nine axles, thus being a mobile complex.

    According to official data reported by the North Korean news agency CTC, and confirmed by American controls, the missile launched from the vicinity of Pyongyang on a special high-altitude trajectory to the designated point in the Sea of ​​Japan flew 950 km in range and reached an altitude of 4,475 km at the apogee of the trajectory. In terms of the "normal" flight trajectory of ICBMs, this gives estimates of range from 10,500 to 13,000 km. Thus, the Khwason-15 missile, when launched from the territory of the DPRK, is capable of attaining almost any point on the continental territory of the United States, including the East Coast.



    The official report of the agency KTKK says:

    Under the personal leadership of the Chairman of the Korean Workers' Party, the Chairman of the State Council of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK State Council), the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the KPA, the Supreme Leader of our Party, the State and the Army, Comrade Kim Jong-un, the intercontinental ballistic missile ( ICBM) Hwaseon-15.

    The test was conducted under the personal leadership of Marshal Kim Jong-un.

    The esteemed supreme leader set the task of the Academy of National Defense to create such a direction in the creation of ballistic missiles, which is capable of putting an end to the confrontation with the United States.

    On November 28, the supreme leader, having received a report on the completion of the test launch of a new ICBM, arrived at midnight for the technical training of the missile and inspected a 9-axis mobile ground-based missile complex made by the working class.

    The supreme leader, praising the impeccably made work, drew attention to the works of the working class of the plant, who participated in the development of the launch vehicle.

    He expressed satisfaction that now we will be able to produce launchers as long as we want due to a 100 per cent conversion of all elements of the launcher on the basis of domestic production.

    The esteemed supreme leader went to the launch pad and carefully supervised all the preparatory processes, including bringing the ICBMs to a vertical position.

    Then, at the command observation post, the top manager specifically got acquainted with the plan for the trial launch of the Khwason-15 ICBM and ordered the launch.

    "Hwaseong-15" with sparks rose high into space, revealing a huge fuselage.

    The Hvasson-15 ICB reached an altitude of 4,475 km (apogee) and flew 950 km in 53 minutes from the launch point and hit the specified target in the water area of ​​the Korean East Sea.

    Through this test run, it was confirmed that all the indicators of the weapons system accurately meet all design requirements, and that the system provides sufficient reliability in the combat situation in accordance with the purpose of the strategic weapons system.

    In particular, it was confirmed: accuracy of hit on the target based on position control and speed correction in the middle section of the flight, the accuracy of the super-high-power engine with high thrust, equipped with thrust vector control, the accuracy of the design parameters of the corresponding guidance and stabilization system was also checked.

    Such indicators as maneuverability and time of the active site, as well as the reliability of the 9-axis mobile ground-based rocket complex, were also checked.

    Along with this, the already proven technologies of control and stabilization, separation and divorce of stages, and the stability of the shielding for re-entry into the atmosphere have been re-confirmed.

    The Khwason-15 ICBM is entirely developed on the basis of our domestic industry in accordance with our reality. It is a weapon of the WPK, and thus our state now possesses another new type of ICBM capable of carrying a super-powerful nuclear warhead and delivering strikes throughout the United States.

    The esteemed supreme leader rejoiced that the test was carried out successfully the first time and said that he sends thanks to all the soldiers who participated in the development of this complex.

    He noted that today is a significant day, the day when the historic matter of improving the state nuclear forces of the missile power was realized, and that it is necessary to write this day in the history of the Motherland, giving birth to great forces, which raised the strategic status of the Republic even higher.

    He also said that the brilliant successes that have been achieved recently in the field of defense science and in all other regions of the country is a great victory that can only be achieved by the heroic Korean people who faithfully support the great cause of the party, regardless of any adversity.

    The esteemed senior leader warmly congratulated scientists and technicians, workers and workers in the field of defense sciences who successfully conducted the test launch of a new ICBM and thus again demonstrated the dignity and greatness of Juche Korea to the whole world and was photographed for memory together with them.

    He was accompanied by Zhang Chang Ha, Jeong-hoo-ho, Kyaw Yong-won and Yu Jin.

    latest reports is that it's a rip off the South Korea's Hyunmoo-2 missile system and not a cheap copy of the Iskander

    Sputnik stated that it could be either Iskander or hyunmoo 2 either it's unlikely going to be good as either lol

    New missile which was displayed during last parade, hope they are good systems and much better than the Scuds. Syria will do good with lots of such missiles at their disposal.

    I highly doubt it will be anywhere as good as Iskander but it does look fairly professional build.

    Actually when I visited DPRK  (some of my pics on forum) they actually had quite good build quality compared to there chinese neighbours I mostly because a lot of stuff is still built with simple machinery and by hand. They still produce bicycles from a 1970's design there was even new ghetto blasters  (tape deck sound systems) and the country is the cleanest I've been to. The train station you could eat your dinner off the floor lol. Basic simple robust and it works.  It's more modern than the western media portray

    Also when I was there they had made their own tablet device and Chinese customers wanted it the quality was good and many chinese people when I mentioned it to them in dandong and Beijing they said it was 90-95% as good as an
    I pad but cost a fraction of the price
