While North Korea is concentrating on diversifying its nuclear weapons and delivery means, a source said that it recently established a mobile ballistic missile regiment under the Strategic Force.

North Korea, which is trying to ‘minimize the possibility of a preemptive strike at the origin of a provocation’ by conducting a test launch of a ballistic missile through a railway as well as a vehicle, is expected to focus on related work in the future through a specialized unit to promote it.

According to a daily NK internal military source on the 8th, the establishment of the new unit began according to an order issued in mid-September from the Supreme Command. As a result, the capability of one technical launch regiment has been called up, and since the 4th, the actual movement of troops is being carried out in the interstellar county of Jagang Province.

First of all, attention is paid to the fact that the new unit is located in ‘Jagang Province’. It is worth noting that the main munitions factories are concentrated and the movement and transportation routes are tunneled. It was judged that it could quickly and secretly threaten and strike the enemy by producing related weapons.

It is also interesting that the area is not far from the hypersonic weapons organization operation unit (Leeman Labor District, Jeoncheon-gun, Jagang-do), which is called a ‘game changer’ that was completed recently. In other words, it showed their will to establish a missile arsenal. (See related articles: Hypersonic missile launch forward Relocation of strategic forces to nearbyup to practical accompany)

For this reason, it is predicted that, according to the so-called ‘Five-Year Defense Development Plan’ of the North Korean military authorities, there is a possibility that the relocation and new establishment of units related to the advancement of nuclear weapons will be carried out in series in Jagang Province.

The source said, “The deployment before the establishment of one interstellar military regiment, which has been underway since the 4th, is also in accordance with the strategic military’s step-by-step goals during the 5-year national defense development plan.”

Another high-ranking source said, “The above (authority) is emphasizing the need to increase the killing rate of more nuclear weapons in terms of tactics of last defense and retaliation along with preemptive nuclear attack capabilities by accelerating the diversification of the means of mobile re-entry ballistic missile projectiles. “This is a foreshadowing that the strategic and tactical organization project that will determine the success or failure of the nuclear war for five years will continue,” he explained.

This is interpreted as continuing to develop a plan to realize the modernization of armed forces through the advancement of strategic weapons and tactical weapons, which was announced by Chairman Kim Jong-un at the 8th Party Congress held earlier this year.

Meanwhile, it is known that the new mobile ballistic missile regiment and the movement of troops will be completed before the next synchronous training (starting on December 1).
