Pyongyang, April 23 (KCNA) -- There took place a drill on April 22 to operate super-large multiple rocket units that are to play an important role in substantially strengthening the prompt counterattack capacity of the state nuclear force and raising a war deterrent under the state's nuclear weapon combined management system "Haekbangashoe" for the first time.

The drill of which the main purpose is to demonstrate the reliability, superiority, might and diverse means of the DPRK's nuclear force and to strengthen the nuclear force both in quality and quantity is a clear warning signal to the enemies as it was conducted at a time when the enemies' military confrontation racket against the DPRK is being committed with extremely provocative and aggressive nature.

The U.S. and the ROK puppet military warmongers have staged a "combined joint formation drill" with more than one hundred warplanes of various kinds in the Kunsan Air Force Base of the ROK from April 12. They have incited extreme war fever through one hundred sorties on a daily average, openly talking about an "advance" towards the DPRK after completely taking off their mask of "defence" and "deterrence" said in the previous drills.

Not content with frequently introducing nuclear strategic assets into the surrounding area of the DPRK and staging war drills with its vassal forces, the U.S. is giving publicity that those drills are aiming right at the DPRK. Such military provocations of the U.S. are scheduled to last till April 26.

On April 18, the U.S. and the ROK special units staged a "joint airborne infiltration drill" for the purpose of rapidly infiltrating any region to "remove a target".

The security environment of the DPRK is seriously threatened by the hostile forces' ceaseless military provocations to stifle the DPRK by "force". This reality which can not be overlooked urgently requires the DPRK to more overwhelmingly and more rapidly bolster up the strongest military muscle capable of actively controlling the situation to ensure the security of the country and the regional peace.

Kim Jong Un , general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and president of the State Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), guided a combined tactical drill simulating a nuclear counterattack involving super-large multiple rocket artillerymen.

He was accompanied by Kim Jong Sik, vice department director of the Central Committee of the WPK, and Jang Chang Ha, general director of the DPRK Missile Administration, commanded the drill.

The drill was conducted, divided into an actual drill for making units be versed in the procedure and process of switching over to a nuclear counterattack posture at a time when the "Hwasanpalryong" system, the state's greatest nuclear crisis alarm, is issued and a drill for operating the nuclear counterattack commanding system. It was also conducted according to the order of making the sub-units assigned to the nuclear counterattack task be practiced in the process and order and of carrying out their tasks and firing shells of super-large multiple rocket launchers tipped with simulated nuclear warheads.

Through the drill, the reliability of the system of command, management, control and operation of the whole nuclear force was reexamined in a many-sided way and the action order and combat methods for making the super-large multiple rocket units rapidly switch over to nuclear counterattack were mastered.

A firepower assault company selected from a relevant combined unit participated in the drill and commanding officers and soldiers of relevant units and sub-units watched the drill conducted under the "Haekbangashoe" system for the first time and the salvo drill.

The artillerymen of super-large multiple rocket launchers fired in salvo, with firm hostility toward the enemy and transparent viewpoint on the principal enemy. The super-large multiple rocket launchers accurately hit the island target within 352 km range, fully demonstrating their matchless might and perfect actual war posture.

Expressing great satisfaction over the result of the drill, the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un appreciated the high hit and accuracy of the super-large multiple rocket launchers, saying that he seemed to see the firing of a sniper's rifle and that the Korean-style tactical nuclear strike means boasting of the formidable might, the most powerful in the world, have strictly prepared themselves to faithfully mobilize in carrying out their important strategic task in contingency in a rapid and thorough counterattack posture.

He appreciated with satisfaction that the combined tactical drill simulating a nuclear counterattack involving even artillerymen of super-large multiple rocket launchers was successfully conducted and, thereby, the plan of the Party Central Committee for building the nuclear force on expanding the operation space of tactical nuclear attack and diversifying it has been translated into reality.

Stressing the need to continuously complete tactics and operation in the orientation of steadily enhancing a pivotal role of the nuclear force in all aspects of strategy to deter and fight a war and to perfect the regular combat readiness of the nuclear force, he clarified the principled matters to be taken as a guideline in the struggle for strengthening the strategic nuclear force of the DPRK.

He said that through the combined tactical drill, the might and effect of our nuclear combat force involving even super-large multiple rocket launchers have remarkably increased and all sub-units are full of great confidence and the drill served as an important occasion in thoroughly preparing our nuclear force to be able to rapidly and correctly carry out their important mission of deterring a war and taking the initiative in a war even in any time and any sudden situation.

The nuclear force of the DPRK will keep the war posture with their more developed capacity, thoroughly deter the moves and provocation of the enemies and carefully watch them and carry out their important mission without hesitation if the enemies attempt to use armed forces. -0-
