North Korea shows off largest-ever number of nuclear missiles at anniversary parade

ABC News 9 Feb 23,

Nuclear-armed North Korea showcased its missile production muscle during a night-time parade, state media reported on Thursday, displaying more intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) than ever before and hinting at a new solid-fuel weapon.

Key points:

  • As many as 11 Hwasong-17s, North Korea’s largest ICBM, were shown during the parade
  • Analysts say that 11 ICBMs would be enough to overwhelm US missile defences
  • A prototype of a new solid-fuel ICBM also appeared to be displayed

The country has forged ahead with its ballistic missile program, test-launching dozens of advanced missiles last year despite United Nations Security Council resolutions and sanctions.
