North Korea's large "Pukguksong-3" two
stage solid-fuel SLBM
2019, October 03 -- North Korea has posted pictures of the successful
launch the Pukguksong-3 SLBM on 2nd October 2019. It is a test version, without
reentry warhead, nor the skirt with grid-fins. The launch was made from an
underwater barge. A larger specimen is required for loading into a submarine.
Such is under construction, as recently published pictures suggest.
