KCNA state news reported Monday that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea tested a “new type” of “ultra-modern” anti-ship missile during drills held this week.

According to the KCNA report:

The rockets, which were developed at the ultra-modern level, are being deployed at the naval units of the KPA to go into action.

At an observation post he received a report on the drill plan and gave an order to start the drill.

Then rockets soared into the sky in order.

Kim Jong Un watched with great attention the flight of the rockets on a display.

The highly intelligent rockets safely flew at the designated altitude, accurately detecting and hitting the “enemy” warship.
