The test fire was aimed at making a final confirmation of the overall specifications of the developed hypersonic weapon system.
The hypersonic missile was launched into the sky.
The hypersonic gliding warhead was separated from the launched missile, made a gliding re-leap from the point of 600 kilometres and 240-kilometre acute circular flight from the initial launch azimuth to the pinpoint to hit the target in the waters 1,000 kilometres away.
The final test fire more clearly proved the superb manoeuvrability of the hypersonic gliding warhead.
He underscored the need to strengthen the strategic military power of the country both in quality and quantity and in a sustainable way and put greater spurs to the struggle for enhancing the modernity of the army. He said the field of defence science research should continue to make good successes in the historic sacred work to drastically strengthen the war deterrent of the country, true to the policy of the Party on developing national defence and its strategic policy.
