Pyongyang showed a copy of the Chinese hypersonic missile

On April 25, 2022, another military parade took place in the capital of the DPRK, Pyongyang. This time it was dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the Korean People's Army.

During the aforementioned solemn event, the leader of the country, Kim Jong-un, addressed the people in a new (snow-white) marshal's uniform. In addition, the latest achievements of the military-industrial complex of the North Koreans in the field of missile weapons were demonstrated. There really was something to show at the parade.

Parade crews of the latest missile systems passed through the center of Pyongyang: launchers with the Hwaseong-8 hypersonic missile, solid-propellant ballistic missiles (suspiciously similar to the American ATACMS class missile), strategic mobile systems with Hwaseong-17 ICBMs. At the same time, the hypersonic missile shown by the North Koreans is actually copy Chinese hypersonic tactical complex DF-17, which was officially presented to China in 2019.

All this indicates that Pyongyang is doing well in intelligence and has serious competencies in reproducing the data obtained in specific products. We remind you that since the beginning of 2022, the DPRK has already conducted about a dozen missile tests, causing specific concerns in Japan and South Korea.

In his speech, the North Korean leader said the country would continue to build up its nuclear forces as quickly as possible. According to him, nuclear weapons are necessary to prevent war, but not limited to this. Therefore, Pyongyang will continue to make efforts to, if necessary, be able to use the containment mechanism if some other state "encroaches on the main interests of the DPRK." Thus, he allowed the use of nuclear weapons.

      And what's with the nails? the profit is not the same or the master did not give a kick? if you have brains and desire, you can get a subsidy from the state. for a long time, no one wanted to process sawdust, and now briquettes from them are sold for foreign currency.

      Child, it's just cheaper to buy nails from the Chinese than to make them yourself. Our hard worker at a nail stamping machine has to pay at least 30-40 thousand a month, and a Chinese does the same for two bowls of rice a day.

        laughing Oh ... about the "child" pleased! The grandson just, with a votsap, unsubscribed - he passed the tests, you can say already in the 4th year of the university!
        Well, nails "for a bowl of rice", and also - "Our hard worker" - THERE ARE NO SUCH ... It definitely hurts you to think fellow Just in captivity of old ideas. It happened for 4 months, I was in China for work right before the "sore - Covid" ...
        This is a completely different country! Another level! They have grown since the 80s and 90s! ON THE! 100 years! They built and MASTERED ... THEIR robotic production. And your current Russia ... is hopelessly behind, first of all, in the most important thing today - computer production technologies and scientific research.

        Oh! The grandfather, sitting under a Chinese cafe and packing greens in bunches for the same cafe, receives a salary of approx. 400 Baku (this was in one of the documentaries like "Around the World", shown on one of the state channels)

    The appearance of the rocket does not say anything at all. Under the USSR, one rocket was rolled across Red Square for a long time, in fact it was a dummy, the Americans bought into it and spent more than one billion dollars in vain.

    At the same time, the hypersonic missile shown by the North Koreans is actually a copy of the Chinese hypersonic operational-tactical complex DF-17, which was officially presented to China in 2019.

    The author did not even bother to count the bridges on the undercarriage of the launcher with his finger - the Chinese have 5 of them, and the Koreans have 6. This absolutely indicates that the DF-17 and the Hwaseong-8 belong to completely different classes of weapons (who doesn’t believe me, look at the visual difference between Pioneer, Topol and Yars ground missile systems in the first place)
