TOKYO, April 8. /TASS/. Pyongyang has about 1,000 ballistic missiles and a small number of light bombers capable of reaching most targets in South Korea and Japan, a report published by the US-Korea Institute at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies on Tuesday said.
They include Nodong medium-range ballistic missiles (MRBM) with a range of 1,200-1,500 km and Scud ballistic missiles that could carry a nuclear payload 300-600 km.
"As a result, the current force is more than able to accommodate any future growth in the North’s nuclear weapons arsenal, including a worst-case projection of 100 nuclear weapons by 2020," according to the report.
Pyongyang may also be able to field a limited number of long-range Taepodong missiles that are able to reach targets in the United States.
Meanwhile, US experts say "such a weapon would represent more of a political statement than an operational capability since it would suffer from significant problems including vulnerability to attack because of likely basing on an above-ground launch pad."
