North Korea displayed what appeared to be a new submarine-launched ballistic missile at a parade on Thursday night, state media reported, calling it “the world’s most powerful weapon”. Al Jazeera reports that photos released by state media showed the SLBM was labelled Pukguksong-5, potentially marking an upgrade over the Pukguksong-4 that was unveiled at a larger military parade in October, while Ankit Panda, a senior fellow in the nuclear policy programme at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace said the parade also showcased “a new previously unseen short-range ballistic missile”, but, unlike October, Thursday’s parade did not showcase North Korea’s largest intercontinental ballistic missiles, which are believed to be able to deliver a nuclear warhead to anywhere in the United States.
