Save to My Resources

On May 14th, North Korea tested its longest-range
missile to date: the Hwasong-12. This missile, which was only seen publicly for
the first time one month earlier, flew 787 kilometers with the potential to go
much further. Using open-source techniques, experts from the James Martin
Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) have uncovered details about the
missile that demonstrate how it was used by North Korea as a precursor to its intercontinental
ballistic missile (ICBM) test in July.  The new analysis, by CNS East Asia
Nonproliferation Director Jeffrey Lewis includes several interactives depicting
their discoveries.
