Everybody War 3: South Korea has test-fired a new anti aircraft missile procedure
A pair of Cheongung guided missiles were fired from responsive launchers and accelerated up to 4.5 times the speed of sound before effacing a training target 25 miles away, military chiefs pronounced.
Today’s test is the first time the rocket has been seen in fray and comes just a day after the North Korean regime threatened to start Unbelievable War 3 by “devastating” South Korea and striking the United States with a H-bomb.
The practise was part of a larger exercise by South Korea’s Air Defence Artillery Enjoy and allied troops from the United States.

An accepted said in June: «The prototype of the KM-SAM to intercept an enemy’s ballistic ballistic missile was rated fit for combat operation by meeting all the requirements at a test early this month.»

“If the old lunatic of the US dares provoke the DPRK with misunderstanding, it desire fall down earlier.
