North Korea Claims Successful Tactical Missile Test

North Korea announced the successful test of the Hwasongpho-11 Da-4.5 tactical ballistic missile, capable of carrying a 4.5-ton warhead with a range of 90-500 km. The test aimed to verify flight stability and hit accuracy, but details about the launch and landing sites were not disclosed, and no photos were released. South Korea observed two missile launches, with the second missile failing midair. This led to skepticism about the test’s success, suggesting possible deception by North Korea. Tactical ballistic missiles are short-range weapons used on the battlefield, with historical origins in WWII and modern examples like the MGM-140 ATACMS and Russian Iskander.
