North Korea showcased its new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) for the first time at a public event during a large-scale military parade in Pyongyang today.

A huge truck carrying the missile-shaped objective appeared to be a new type ICBM rolled through the main square of the capital in front of leader Kim Jong-un, Yonhap reports Saturday.

"It's presumed to be a new ICBM. It seems longer than the existing KN-08 or KN-14 ICBMs, a South Korean military official told Yonhap.

The North also showed off various other ballistic missiles including what it claims to be a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) and new intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) ’Pukguksong-2’.
