Pyongyang (Agencies): North Korea has successfully developed a new ballistic control system for a multiple rocket launcher along with controllable shells, according to state media KCNA.

The Academy of Defence Science, responsible for the country’s missile development, conducted a “ballistic control” test firing of 240-mm calibre controllable multiple rocket launcher shells.

The strategic value of the 240 mm-caliber multiple rocket launcher will be reevaluated, and its role in battlefields will increase due to rapid technical improvement.

This development is expected to make a “qualitative change” in North Korea’s multiple rocket launcher force.

These developments come amid multiple missile tests by North Korea and growing ties between Pyongyang and Moscow, which have been criticized by the U.S. and its allies as escalating tensions in the Korean Peninsula. North Korea has accused the U.S. and South Korea of escalating tensions with their large-scale military drills.
