A new solid-propellant ballistic missile participated in the parade in North Korea.

A new, presumably solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and new tanks, whose name is unknown, participated in the DPRK parade on Wednesday.

The parade included a column of North Korean Hwaseong-17 ICBMs, missiles similar to the Russian Iskander KN-23, which can carry a nuclear warhead, short-range surface-to-surface ballistic missiles such as the South Korean KTSSM, mobile installations, presumably with cruise missiles, North Korean super-large MLRS, 240 mm MLRS, 152 mm self-propelled guns.


Also in the photos from the parade were seen new tanks, the combat designation of which is still unknown, and new ICBM-scale missiles, presumably solid-propellant ones. They drove across the square on 9-axle mobile launchers, which are two axles of launchers for Hwaseong-17 missiles. Therefore, it is assumed that the new missiles are shorter, 22-24 meters long.


Pyongyang reported in December 2022 that it had successfully tested a solid rocket engine.
