North Korea's new solid-fuel missile -- named HS-18 ?
2023, April, 13 -- The photos of the launch of that missile, wjich shown at the last parade, bring us closer to solving the mystery. It is a three-stage missile with a base diameter of 1.8 m and 1.5 m diameter in the upper part. The approximately 21.8 m long missile is referred as Hwasong-18. Because it is a solid-fuel missile, a name from the Pukguksong series would have been more appropriate. The exciting question is which existing missiles were stacked here. In any case, the size of the missile should not be overstated. In any case, the diameter of 2.10 or 2.20 m circulating in analyzes is out of the question.
TAn vehicle with huge canister
for a solid-fuel missile shown at last parades in 2023 was a mysterium. North-Korea
has not yet developed or tested such long motors with this diameter. Corresponding
missiles are also not known.
