SEOUL, June 30 (Itar-Tass) - Pyongyang has started improving its long-range artilleries on the border with South Korea, the Yonhap news agency reported on Sunday.
North Korea’s army is replacing 107-millimiter-cilber multiple rocket launchers with 240-millimiter-caliber launchers with a range of 70 kilometers.
According to Yonhap, Pyongyang has deployed three multiple rocket launchers with different caliber - 107 mm, 122 mm and 240 mm - on the border with South Korea.
“There are signs that the North is deploying artilleries at some western and eastern front-line military units,” South Korea’s government source said.
The new artilleries may pose a threat to South Korea’s capital areas.
According to different estimates, the North has a total of 5,100 multiple rocket launchers.
