Seoul marked the first public display of its Hyunmoo II-C 800Km Ballistic Missile which can hit most areas in North Korea.
The unveiling of the Hyunmoo-class surface-to-surface ballistic missiles yesterday was part of a package of advanced missile systems capable of targeting North Korea. This muscle-flexing following several ballistic missile launches by Pyongyang over the last few months.
During Armed Forces Day held at the Navy’s 2nd Fleet Command in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province Thursday, President Moon Jae-in conducted an inspection of troops and strategic weapons from the Army, Navy and Air Force, Korea Herald said in a report filed by Yeo Jun-suk.
Among them were Hyunmoo-class surface-to-surface ballistic missiles, includes the Hyunmoo II-C. Scheduled to be fielded on the front line soon, the Hyunmoo II-C has proved its capability through a series of test-launches. President Moon oversaw the missile test in June, which came as a show of force against the North’s missile provocations.
Alongside the 300-kilometer-range Hyunmoo II-A and 500-kilometer-range Hyunmoo II-B, the Hyunmoo II-C is expected to boost South Korea’s pre-emptive strike capability against North Korea by putting most of its territory within its range.
In addition, the military unveiled another key asset to enhance Seoul’s missile deterrence against the North: the air-to-ground Taurus missile. Earlier this month, the Air Force conducted its first live-fire exercise of the missile.
Boasting a maximum range of 500 kilometers, the Taurus is equipped with stealth technology and GPS, allowing the missile to strike a long-distance target precisely without being disturbed by North Korea’s radar system and jamming attacks.
Also shown during the event were the ground-to-ground Army Tactical Missile System, the Hyungung anti-tank guided weapon, Patriot PAC-II air defense missiles, M-SAM surface-to-air missiles and the SLAM-ER air-to-ground missile.
