Analysis:
  It is not to overview that the new missile is based on the Pukguksong-1 SLBM. It is quasi a single-stage PS-1 (without adding a segment like the PS-3 GLBM). The launch takes place from a tracked vehicle with two parallel mounted box-shaped containers without bottom. These are lifted hydraulically at a specific angle before launching. The PS-1 GLBM is about 7.2m long and 1.1m in diameter. It has nothing to do with the small ATACMS.
