SEOUL, February 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Seoul said the launch of four North Korean projectiles was a response to the annual military manoeuvres being conducted in the region by the Republic of Korea and the United States.
The Republic of Korea has stepped up the monitoring of the North for possible provocations, including new rocket launches, a South Korean Defence Ministry official said on Thursday, February 27.
According to the South Korean military, the launched rockets are a version of the Scud missiles currently in service in the Korean People’s Army. Initially, the South Korean military thought that these were surface-to-ship KN-02 missiles but then came to the conclusion that North Korea had launched Scud missiles, which have a range of over 200 km, a government source said.
Military specialists say that the North Korean army might have launched a modernized version of the KN-02 missile or tested a multiple launch rocket system with a caliber of over 300 mm.
The Korean People’s Army uses three versions of Scud-type missiles: Scud B with a range of 300 km; Scud C (500 km) and Scud D (700 km). North Korea last launched such missiles on July 4, 2009.
