Analysts Say North Korea's New Missiles are Fakes

27 April 2012

Analysts who have studied photos of a half-dozen ominous new North Korean missiles showcased recently at a lavish military parade say they were fakes, and not very convincing ones, casting further doubt on the country’s claims of military prowess. Since its recent rocket launch failure, Pyongyang’s top military leaders have made several boastful statements about its weapons capabilities. But the weapons displayed April 15 appear to be a mishmash of liquid-fuel and solid-fuel components that could never fly together, and don’t even fit the launchers they were carried on.—AP
