North Korea’s Kim Jong-un has ordered the mass production of the KN-06 surface-to-air missile system following its successfull test, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
KCNA added that Kim Jong-un watched “the successful test” of the defense system organized by the Academy of National Defence Science. However, the agency didn’t reveal date and location of the test.
“Some defects in the weapon system, discovered last year, were perfectly overcome to stand the test,” KCNA quoted Kim as saying. “This weapon system, whose operation capability has been thoroughly verified, should be mass-produced to deploy in all over the country like forests so as to completely spoil the enemy’s wild dream to command the air, boasting of air supremacy and weapon almighty.”
According to the agency, the new missile defense system was intercepting and destroying drones and rockets during the test.
