Can create a MIRV’ed ICBM to accompany the hydrogen bomb they unveiled in 2017:
And even the chassis for it – at least, to the amazement of Western journalists*.
It’s own MBT*:
Some kind of S-300 like system:
Even new uniforms, which look quite sturdier than the old ones:
This is what 25 million people with an average IQ of 103 can accomplish if they set their minds to it. Still waiting for the Sudan to accomplish something similar.
Or even 88 IQ Iran, over whose nuclear program 95 IQ Israelis with a large 103 IQ smart fraction regularly ride roughshod over. Though as we saw this January, even Iran is capable of springing surprises.
Now in fairness, liquid fueled missiles, even big MIRV’ed ones like this new version of the Hwasong-15, are still far inferior to the solid fueled ones that represent the true cutting edge. They can be detected during the ~30 minutes they need for fueling, which opens a window for cruise missile strikes. And it’s also much easier now to develop all these technologies than during the Cold War, for the basic reason that (1) they have already been developed, and (2) because the electronics and machine parts which go into them were not available in 1960 but today can be bought on Ali Baba (as commenter Thorfinnsson points out).
Still, these are impressive achievements nonetheless, and ones that continue to legitimate the HBD-centric view of the world.
On another, more geopolitical note, achieving nuclear security also ensures the long-term dominance of Best Korea, which retains healthy, replacement level fertility, over the South – which continues to plumb new demographic nadirs with every passing year. The North has had more total births than the South since the late 2010s, despite having half its population. So long as these trends don’t cardinally change, and the North’s political system remains unchanged – indeed, with society “frozen” in its pre-SJW driven dissolution state – the North may regain a window to militarily resolve the reunification issue that it came close to achieving in the 1980s, but seemingly permanently lost in the 1990s.
* Commenter Annatar reminds us that Elleman is the same guy who claimed the Iranian missiles had a CEP of 700 meters whereas in fact it was just 10 meters.
** Cool fact: North Korean tanks are pretty specific, their cannons have a wider angle of inclination than in other countries, to adjust for the mountainous terrain).
