North Korea may develop new submarine-launched ballistic missile


PV International Desk : North Korea is currently developing a new submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), Japan’s NHK television channel reported.

The TV channel grounds its assumptions by the photos taken during the visit of the leader of the DPRK Kim Jong-un to the Research Institute of Chemical Materials at the National Academy of Military Sciences and published by the Korean Central News Agency.

On one of those photos one can see Kim Jong-un standing against a board with depiction of an arms development plan and the Pukkuksong-3 (“Polaris”) written in big letters. This is the name of North Korean SLBMs. Earlier, North Korea had already conducted tests of Pukkuksong-1 and Pukkuksong-2.
