Pyongyang, May 30 (KCNA) -- Respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un guided a ballistic rocket test-fire through a precision control guidance system.
He visited a launching ground to look around a caterpillar self-propelled launching pad vehicle and ballistic rocket with the precision control guidance system.
He learned in detail about the tactical and technological specifications of the ballistic rocket and expressed satisfaction over the fact that the preparatory process before launching was more highly automated than the preceding Hwasong serial rockets to complete the system for markedly reducing the launching time so as to rapidly contain the enemies' armed provocations.
After hearing a plan for the test-fire at a command post, he issued an order to launch the ballistic rocket.
The present test-fire aimed at verifying the technological indices of the new-type precision guided ballistic rocket capable of making ultra-precision strike on the enemies' objects at any area and at examining the reliability to operate the caterpillar self-propelled launching pad vehicle which was newly designed and produced in different battle conditions was conducted in the way of firing of middle shooting range for the minute remote observation to the last guidance stage of the warhead.
The ballistic rocket flew toward the east sky where the day broke and correctly hit a planned target point with deviation of seven meters after flying over the middle shooting range.
The test-fire verified the flying stability of the ballistic rocket loaded with the warhead with control wings in the active flying section and reconfirmed the correctness of speed rectification and attitude stabilization system by a small heat jet engine in middle flying section.
It also verified ultra-precision guidance correctness in the re-entry section by more precision last guidance system and fully proved the running feature of the newly-developed caterpillar self-propelled launching pad vehicle and features of automated launching preparation process in different terrain conditions.
Seeing the successful test-fire of the ballistic rocket, he said that the ballistic rocket which appeared for the first time at the square of the military parade for victory to mark the Day of the Sun looks like as if a crack shot hits a target with sniper's riffle, adding that such correct hit would dig up eyes of the enemies. He said that the national defence science research field making only the victorious advance under the deep concern and direct leadership of our Party is now achieving world-level ultra-modern national defence science technologies in the Korean way as it wishes, noting that our Party highly appreciated this success.
Whenever news of our valuable victory is broadcast recently, the Yankees would be very much worried about it and the gangsters of the south Korean puppet army would be dispirited more and more, he said.
He called for continuing to develop more powerful strategic weapons based on the present success.
In the future the national defence research field should clearly show the might of our self-protecting national defence industry in a series of multi-phase as the timetable and course worked out by the Party, he expressed the conviction that it would make greater leap forward in this spirit to send bigger "gift package" to the Yankees.
Accompanying him were Ri Pyong Chol, Kim Rak Gyom, Kim Jong Sik, Jang Chang Ha, Jong Sung Il and Jon Il Ho.
