N. Korean leader inspects new tactical missile system (Video)

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has inspected a new tactical missile weapons system and called for an “epochal change” in war preparations by attaining arms production plans, state media said Wednesday.

Kim oversaw the “tactical missile weapons system to be newly equipped by the combined missile units of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) in charge of an important firing assignment” on Tuesday, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

It did not provide further details on the new system or where the inspection took place.

The North’s arms factories, which have fulfilled their production plans for the first half of this year, will carry out plans to manufacture the tactical missile weapon system by the end of the year, the KCNA said.

The missile launchers produced in the first half of the year will be deployed to combined units of the KPA’s western operation group, it added.
The KCNA said Kim called for the timely completion of ongoing weapons production plans.

The North’s leader “particularly stressed the need to bring about an epochal change in the preparations of the KPA for war by carrying out the munitions production plans for 2024 without fail,” according to the report.

The inspection came just two days after Kim made a weekend visit to major munitions factories that produce sniper riles and rocket launcher vehicles and urged efforts to improve the military’s artillery capabilities.
