The Hwasong-17 intercontinental ballistic missile launched

The Hwasong-17 intercontinental ballistic missile launches from Pyongyang International Airport on March 24, 2022.


The rocket rose to a height of 6248.5 km and flew a distance of 1090 km before falling into the Sea of ​​Japan.

This is officially reported by the CTC, but the US and South Korean military believe that the already known Hwasong-15 missile was launched, and not the "newest".

Their conclusions are based on the analysis of photos, videos, data from satellites and rocket flight parameters: two nozzles, not four; thermal signature; presumably a lightweight warhead to artificially increase the range and flight altitude.
