Japan, US, South Korea Begin Real-Time Missile Data Sharing, Latest North Korean ICBM Can Reach All Of Mainland US
Japan, US, South Korea Begin Real-Time Missile Data Sharing. If the North Korean nuclear-capable ICBM had flown in a straight trajectory rather than an arc it could target any location in mainland US.
TOKYO/SEOUL - The United States, Japan, and South Korea have begun real-time missile data sharing for North Korean missiles in response to the North's persistent missile threat, and in light of the country's latest intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test that the North claims was its latest, and most powerful nuclear-capable solid-fuel Hwasong-18, which it said it tested as a result of hostility by the United States.
According to South Korean media, the latest ICBM missile launch by North Korea was the country's 5th intercontinental ballistic missile launched this year and was carried out just hours after the country launched a short-range missile from its capital Pyongyang on Sunday.
