Threat Tuesday – A North Korean Moose!

The October 10 military parade in Pyongyang was a real thing of beauty with so many of Kim Chong-il’s toys on display.  On item in particular caught some attention; the missile shown here.

There was a lively discussion at armscontrolwonk about the new missiles seen in the parade. The missile attracting the attention is the so-called Musudan, which looks like a stretched version of the Soviet R-27/SSN-6 missile.

For good background I recommend you read Range Estimates for the Musudan Missile and More on “Musudan Missile Ranges” over at All Things Nuclear.
