    So it is actually launched from the truck, that make it much more flexible and difficult to deal with...

    Maybe I am fooling myself, but exhaust flames colours&shape look suspiciously similar to Proton-M and some other, modern, missiles/carriers.
    That brings me a conclusion, that Korean missile program might be actually more advanced than I thought scratch

    These North Korean missiles use a clone of the RD-250 engine. It is the same engine used in the R-36 missile. Supposedly the North Koreans got the technology from Ukraine after the fall of the Soviet Union. It uses modern hypergolic fuel combination from the 1960-70s. i.e. N2O4/UDMH. This means modern North Korean missiles use higher energy and longer lasting fuel than previous North Korean missiles.

    The last North Korean nuclear test in 2017 was of a magnitude that was 10x that of the bomb which destroyed Hiroshima. The DPRK really is in its endgame now in consolidating its nuclear capabilities.

    ICBMs and Space launch rockets use different fuel types, as a general rule ICBMs have to sit fuelled up ready to launch for years at a time without regular maintenance.... every few years you check batteries and electronics and pressure in the fuel tanks to ensure there are not leaks or problems, but rockets like Proton are normally fuelled up before launch because some of their fuels are very very cold or so volatile you don't want it sitting there for too long in case something happens.

    But as mentioned access to Ukrainian scientists and also likely relaxed secrecy from Russia and China and Iran can only lead to advancements... if the west is going to bully these countries then they have the right to protect themselves... if you don't isolate and threaten and attack any of these countries they are hardly any threat to you... a concept the west does not understand.

    U.S. urges China and Russia to send strong message to North Korea after missile launch

    Hahaha... yeah... when the US says NK or Iranian missiles are a threat to the world what they mean is they are a threat to us dominating the region these small states live in... they are infringing on our domination of the planet... to which all serious non western countries put on a stern face and wag a finger at these small states and say in a serious voice... good on you brother... Very Happy

    U.S. expresses "alarm" over activity at North Korea's nuclear test site, says it suggests the country could be preparing for a nuclear test

    Why alarm America? You had agreements with NK and Iran where they basically agreed to give up nuclear weapons ambitions in return for security guarantees and no sanctions and normal trade. You fucked over both countries and so now they are pretty much obliged to develop and deploy nuclear weapons... that was the deal.

    What's hilarious is that if you look at many of the earlier posts on the older pages, they were countless reports of failed NK missile launches. These failed launches were largely based on supposition. But now many of those 'failed' missiles have been inducted in to full service within NK's strategic missile forces.

    Lesson to be learned here: Never take Uncle Sham's lies at face value! Embarassed pwnd

    Clearly not because the company along with Investors are going to reimburse gamers their money back so I guess it's lost. Very clever and that's loads of money gone.
