Kim Jong Un Guides Tactical Rocket Firing Drill of Units of KPA Strategic Force in Western Sector of Front

Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defense Commission of the DPRK, again provided field guidance to the tactical rocket firing drill of the units of the KPA Strategic Force in the western sector of the front.

The drill was conducted as a combination of a sudden movement and firepower strike to assess and inspect the actual combat capabilities of the above-said units.

He learned in detail about the firing plan worked out by the Staff of the Strategic Force, the designated flight orbit, the blockade of the targeted waters, etc. before giving an order to fire tactical rockets.

The drill once again fully demonstrated the tactical rockets’ high capability of hitting the targets and combat capability. This helped accurately define the order of combat actions and firepower missions of the strike units of the Strategic Force in the western sector of the front in case of emergency and round off the firing methods according to different enemy targets.

He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the drill was successfully staged in combination with rapid movement as required by a modern warfare.

He gave important instructions for rounding off the combat preparations of the Strategic Force and applying the Juche-oriented rocket combat methods.

He said:

“We should be prepared for both words and actions. However fair-minded and just we are, we may become a bargaining chip for the strong and our precious history inherited with blood will loose its shine in a moment if we are weak”.

He expressed great expectation and conviction that the units of the Strategic Force would as ever further step up the combat readiness of rockets and always keep themselves ready to promptly fire them by undergoing drills under the simulated conditions of an actual battle and thus cope with the reckless confrontation hysteria of the enemies to stifle the DPRK by force at any cost with powerful military deterrent.

He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Pak Jong Chon, Yun Tong Hyon and Hong Yong Chil.
