The South Korean Defense Ministry announced today that it will showcase a cruise missile capable of surgical strikes at the military parade in Seoul next month.
The October 1st parade will showcase military arsenals such as tanks, rockets and helicopters and fighter jets, a ministry official was quoted as saying by AFP.
The parade will also display an indigenously developed cruise missile, Hyeonmu 3, which was first deployed last year.
"It is a precision-guided weapon that can identify and strike the office window of the North's command headquarters," ministry spokesman Kim Min-Seok said during its third nuclear test carried on February 12.
The Seoul event will be much more subdued in comparison with North Korea's over the top display of military might in July to mark the 60th anniversary of the Korean War armistice.
Korean lawmakers are urging the government to renegotiate the purchase of 40 Lockheed Martin F-35A stealth fighters by including technology transfer and local assembly in US$7.2 billion deal
South Korea displayed its longest-range missile and other sophisticated weapons at its biggest Armed Forces Day ceremony on Tuesday. It was South Korea's massive ceremony in a decade and the first since North Korea conducted its third atomic test and threatened nuclear war earlier this year
