The Academy of National Defense Science of the Democratic People's

Republic of Korea test-fired newly-developed new-type tactical guided missiles on March 25.

The test of the weapon was guided by Ri Pyong

Chol, Member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central

Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea and Secretary of the Party Central

Committee, officials of the Department of Munitions Industry of

the Party Central Committee and leading

officials in the field of research into national defense science.

The newly-developed new-type tactical guided missiles are a weapon

system which improved the weight of its warhead to 2.5 tons while using the core technology of the already-developed one.

The test-fired two new-type tactical guided missiles correctly hit the

target set in the 600-kilometre waters on the East Sea of Korea.

Right after the test-firing, the Academy of National Defense Science

announced: This test-firing was quite successful just as we confidently

predicted. Through several times' static firing test of motor and

test-firing, we have

confirmed the reliability of the improved solid-fuel motor and also

reconfirmed the irregular orbit characteristics of the low-altitude

gliding and skipping flight mode which has already been applied to other

guided missiles.

Ri Pyong Chol said: The test of the weapon we

made today is an important

process in implementing the policy of national defense science set forth

at

the Eighth Party Congress. The development of this weapon system is of

great significance in strengthening our military power and arresting all

sorts of military threats existing on the Korean peninsula.

Ri Pyong Chol immediately reported the successful result of the test-firing to General Secretary

Kim Jong Un

and

conveyed the congratulations of the Party Central Committee to the field of research into national defense science.
