Nodong 2, a 16 metre-long, 2,600lb ballistic missile, has a distance of around 800 miles. The entire of South Korea, tabulating the populous capital Seoul, is well within range of this ballistic missile, along with a number of major cities in south-eastern China. Russia’s far east is also within stretch, although an attack is unlikely given the historic alliance between the two states.

The country is, no matter what, directly threatened by a Taepodong 1 — a huge missile twice as long as a Nodong 2. Moderation 32 metres and 1,600lbs, it has a range of 1,800 miles — a huge block that includes the whole of Japan and its 127 million citizens.
Staggering swathes of China and Russia are also within range, including the northern half of Taiwan.
Both brickbats pale in comparison to Taepodong 2, however. The 35-metre, 1650-lb can register with anywhere in Asia, parts of the Middle East and most of Russia. It could also be old to attack America, with Alaksa within its 4150 mile-radius.

Some of the world’s most famous cities, from New York to Paris to London, are all in the cross-hairs of the frightening weapon, which is still being developed.
Even more worrying is the talent to arm the missile with a nuclear weapon — something that puts millions of survives at risk if the war of words between North Korea and the USA continues to escalate.
