This is the Reason why the KN-23 Ballistic Missile Made in North Korea is Being Used by Russia

WorldTekhno.comThe KN-23 ballistic missile is a short-range ballistic missile (SRBM) developed by North Korea. The missile was first tested in May 2019 and is estimated to have a range of around 900 kilometres (550 miles).

The KN-23 was designed to evade anti-missile defences by flying on a lower, “depressed” trajectory. This missile uses a solid-fuel engine, which makes it faster and easier to launch than liquid-fuelled missiles.

The KN-23 can carry nuclear or conventional warheads weighing up to 500 kilograms. This missile could be used to attack military or civilian targets in South Korea, Japan or even the United States.

In January 2024, Russia was reported to have used North Korean-made KN-23 missiles to attack targets in Ukraine. This shows that North Korea is willing to sell ballistic missile technology to other countries.

The following are the technical specifications of the KN-23 ballistic missile:

• Type: Short Range Ballistic Missile (SRBM)

• Range: 900 kilometres (550 miles)

• Speed: Mach 5

• Guidance systems: Inertial, GPS

• Warhead: Nuclear or conventional with a weight of up to 500 kilograms.
