Multiple Rocket Launching Drill by KPA
Pyongyang, February 20 (KCNA) -- Relevant multiple launch rocket sub-units under the Korean People's Army long-range artillery unit on the western front conducted a multiple-rocket launching drill at 7:00 a.m. Monday.

The U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces staged another combined air drill with ten-odd war planes including B-1B strategic bomber and F-35 stealth fighter on February 19.

The enemies are persistently resorting to such military demonstrations, not concealing that the air drill was done in response to the ICBM launching drill by the DPRK on Feb. 18.

The U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces have already staged such combined air drills several times this year alone, escalating the military tension.

The enemies are estimating themselves that they demonstrated the combined defense capability and posture through the prompt introduction of combat force for extended deterrence, while stating that they would continue to increase the frequency and intensity of deploying U.S. strategic assets in south Korea in the future, too.

On the order to conduct power demonstration firing, relevant multiple launch rocket firepower sub-units of the KPA long-range artillery unit on the western front set virtual targets 395 km and 337 km away from the launching points respectively and fired two shells of 600 mm multiple rocket launchers towards the East Sea on the morning of Feb. 20.

At the same time, other sub-units conducted firepower training at the tunnel positions without live firing.

The 600 mm multiple rocket launcher, involved in the firing, is the latest type of multiple launch precision attack weapon system of the KPA. It is a tactical nuclear attack means boasting of the great might powerful enough to assign only one multiple rocket launcher with four shells so as to destroy an enemy operational airfield.

At the donation ceremony held at the end of December last year, the Academy of Defence Science and the Nuclear Weapons Institute expressed their firm view that the power of four multiple rocket launcher shells can reduce to ashes the enemy's operational airfield to paralyze its function.

Through today's firing drill with the involvement of super-large multiple rocket launchers, the tactical nuclear attack means, the KPA fully demonstrated its full readiness to deter and will to counter the U.S. and south Korean combined air force bragging about their air superiority.
