North Korea unveiled a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICMB) at a military parade Saturday, showing off its long-range weapons for the first time in two years.
The missile appeared to be one of the largest Pyongyang has ever rolled out and adds to its already threatening stockpile of weapons.
“This missile is a monster,” Melissa Hanham, deputy director of the Open Nuclear Network, told Reuters.
North Korea also displayed the Hwasong-15, the longest-range missile ever tested by North Korea, and what seemed to be a new submarine-launched ballistic missile.
The parade Saturday was held to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the founding of its ruling Workers’ Party, a top holiday in North Korea.
