Analysts say new North Korean missiles are 'fake'

Pyongyang , Thu, 26 Apr 2012 ANI

Pyongyang, Apr 26 (ANI): Six ominous new North Korean missiles showcased at a lavish military parade were fake, according to analysts.

Experts claimed that the weapons displayed on April 15 appear to be a mish-mash of liquid-fuel and solid-fuel components that could never fly together.

Analysts, in a paper posted on the website Armscontrolwonk.com, said that undulating casings on the missiles suggest the metal is too thin to withstand flight.

According to the Daily Express they pointed out that each missile was slightly different from the others, even though all were supposedly the same make, and they did not fit the launchers they were carried on.

"There is no doubt that these missiles were mock-ups," Markus Schiller and Robert Schmucker, of Germany's Schmucker Technologie, wrote.

"It remains unknown if they were designed this way to confuse foreign analysts, or if the designers simply did some sloppy work," they added.

According to the report, the missiles, called KN-08s, were loaded on to the largest mobile launch vehicles North Korea has ever unveiled.

Pyongyang gave them special prominence by presenting them at the end of the lavish parade, which capped weeks of celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of the country's founding father, Kim Il Sung. (ANI)
