North Korea Debuts Latest Intercontinental Ballistic Missile ‘Hwasong-15’ At Military Parade

North Korea’s latest intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), Hwasong-15 has been featured for the first time in a military parade on Thursday that marked 70th anniversary of the founding of its military.

The North Korean military demonstrated at least four launchers with Hwasong-15 ICBMs at the parade, according to the edited clips broadcasted by the North’s state-run Korean Central Television.  The Hwasong-15 missile launched last year in November is a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile which can fly over 13,000 km (8,080 miles).

Pyongyang says this 2-stage ballistic missile is capable of striking anywhere in the US mainland.

The parade also showed off a range of ballistic missiles, such as the Pukguksong-2 -- a remodeled ground-based version of a submarine-launched ballistic missile, in addition to the intermediate-range Hwasong-12, which Pyongyang claims could reach Hawaii and Alaska, as well as the ICBM-grade Hwasong-14.
