South Korean military conducted a missile drill in waters close to the maritime border with North Korea immediately after the North launched an ICBM-level missile.
The drill, which lasted about 20 minutes, began in the Sea of Japan at 3:23 AM on Wednesday, only minutes after the North Korean missile launch, and involved the country’s Army, Navy and Air Force.
An Aegis ship fired a Haesong-2 missile, which has a range of 1000 kilometers and can penetrate concrete 5 meters thick.
An Army missile unit fired a Hyunmoo-2 missile, which has a range of 300 kilometers and is capable of destroying an area within a 600-meter radius.
An Air Force KF-16 fighter jet fired a SPICE-2000 missile, which has a range of 57 kilometers and is capable of penetrating concrete 2.4 meters thick.
The military released videos of the launches of the Haesong-2 and Hyunmoo-2 missiles.
