In fact, Seoul, the capital of South Korea, is only 40 kilometers away from the border. Seoul has been within the firing range of North Korean rockets and 170mm long-range artillery. What the South Koreans want to intercept is not missiles, but artillery shells.

The North Korean missile is prepared for Japan.



In fact, there is not much hatred between North Koreans and South Koreans. They hate the Japanese together.
This is the scene of the ice skating competition of the Winter Olympic Games. In order to help the South Korean athletes, the North Korean athlete grabbed the Japanese athlete's skate with his hand. Finally, his hand was seriously injured and the Japanese athletes were eliminated.

If yiu actually knew to research then you would not post embarassing replies.
LOL! You need to ask your parents to teach you how to research. I'm also trying to help you.


The Hyunmoo-2C is a short-range, solid-fueled ballistic missile currently in development by South Korea. The Hyunmoo-2C missile’s design is significantly different from that of the previous Hyunmoo 2A/2B variants. It has a range of 800 km, and is expected to enter service in 2018.

Hyunmoo-2C Development​

In late September 2012, South Korea successfully renegotiated the terms of the 2001 US-ROK “New Missiles Guidelines.” The new arms control agreement extended South Korean ballistic missile range limits from 300 km to 800 km, and allowed those missiles which remained at or under a 500 km range to carry a payload of up to 1,000 kg.1

These guidelines were likely agreed to deter North Korea without threatening regional powers, such as China and Japan. Following this development, South Korea’s Agency for Defense Development (ADD) began work on a missile with greater range and accuracy than the Hyunmoo-2B.2

Although still in development it will likely be designated as Hyunmoo-2C.3

The Hyunmoo-2C is manufactured by Hanwha at a plant near the ADD site in Daejon, and the missile is expected to become operational by the end of 2017 and enter service in 2018.4

Specifications​

The Hyunmoo-2C is reportedly longer and wider than previous Hyunmoo-2 variants. Although exact specifications remain confidential, reports indicate that the missile has a length of over 13 meters, a diameter greater than 0.9 m, and a launch weight of over 5,400 kg.5 The missile is likely solid-fueled and single-staged.6 It has an official range of 800 km.7

The Hyunmoo-2C is highly accurate, with a CEP of 1-5 m. According to one analysis, this “raises the possibility that the new weapon is intended for penetrating hard targets, such as bunkers and aircraft shelters.”8

The missile features fins on its reentry vehicle, similar to the U.S. Pershing II missile, which implies the ‘2C’ variant could be maneuverable and terminally guided.9 These reentry, or “control” fins, also distinguishes the missile from its 2B predecessor.10

The Hyunmoo-2C is transported by a 10×10 Transporter-Erector-Launcher (TEL), unlike the 8×8 TEL used for the Hyunmoo-2B.11 South Korean officials have not provided any information regarding the missile’s payload weight or guidance system.

Service History​

The Hyunmoo-2C is currently in development, and is expected to enter service in 2018. The South Korean military has conducted four Hyunmoo-2C test flights, with two more scheduled before deployment. The fourth test launch on June 23, 2017, attracted significant media attention, as it followed North Korean KN-18 and Kumsong-3 missile tests, and included South Korean President Moon Jae-in in attendance.12

This test was successful, with video footage highlighting the missile’s accuracy.13

On September 28, 2017, South Korea’s military publicly displayed the Hyunmoo-2C for the first time. The missile was showcased during the Armed Forces Day held at the Navy’s 2nd Fleet Command in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province.14

In fact, Seoul, the capital of South Korea, is only 40 kilometers away from the border. Seoul has been within the firing range of North Korean rockets and 170mm long-range artillery. What the South Koreans want to intercept is not missiles, but artillery shells.

The North Korean missile is prepared for Japan.
And? South Korea wants to reach all of North Korea hence the lifting of the range limits.

You should ask your own parents to teach you that as you only proved my point. You are not helping yourself by doing that.

Nowhere is stated that Hyunmoo-2 is a quasi-ballistic missile as in has irregular trajectory and never exists earths atmosphere.

LOL! No you should really ask your parents to learn to do some research.

You know South Korea has their own version of something like that right?

that doesn't matter,
South korean muscle is their economy,
the land mass is too small to have any conflict without completely destroying the economy,
the north koreans know that, and they also know economically they got nothing to loose.

LOL! If they got nothing to lose, why haven't they launch nukes or mass artillery attacks? Perhaps because they do have something to lose right? Even with their economy in shambles.

That's your choice. I didn't ask you to stay.

They are living under an absolute dictatorship for sure, but their living standard increasingly looks like paradise compared to a lot of democracies. Even their remote places look well-planned, developed and well-cared.

Do not keep saying that they are hiding their poverty. How can they do that if your satellites can even see people and smaller objects on the streets.

and there are no hungry people in North Korea in 2022, compared, even relatively to population, to many people in the US and the UK going to bed hungry every day, Such news are on Western media, not my imagination.

Pyongyang leaves most cities in East Asia and the world in shame by its cleanliness, orderliness and its quality of urban planning
