Kim Jong Un Inspects Artillery Firing Drill of KPA
| Pyongyang, February 25 (KCNA) -- The dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, issued an order to conduct an artillery firing drill in order to examine the capability of artillery units to fight an actual war and guided it on the spot.
He learned about the training program and the deployment of firepower units from the commander of the exercise before ordering its start.
At that moment, an endless barrage of shells were fired by artillery pieces on the "enemy's positions," their roar rocking heaven and earth, and all of them were enveloped in flames.
Feasting his eyes at the "enemy positions" in flames, he was satisfied with the shells accurately hitting the targets.
He noted that if the drill leads to an actual battle, the enemies will be hit so hard by the retaliatory strikes of the infuriated powerful revolutionary army of Mt. Paektu that they would not be able to raise their heads again.
He highly praised the artillerymen for their successful drill.
He said that he was examining the preparedness of units for an actual battle after issuing an order all of a sudden, adding that the drill once again convinced him that all the officers and men of the army are waiting for an order of the supreme commander for a final attack, keeping themselves in maximum alert.
He set forth important tasks to be carried out by the army to make thorough preparations to go into action.
He also clarified in detail issues of further modernizing the artillery force to cope with the escalating reckless maneuvers of the enemies for a war of aggression.
He emphasized that the artillerymen should always be ready to open fire to hit the targets anytime an order is issued and deal merciless blows at the enemies when they preempt firing.
He saw the military hardware newly developed by the army.
He had a photo session with the service personnel of the units.
He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Hyon Yong Chol, Kim Kyok Sik, Kim Yong Chun, Ri Yong Gil, Son Chol Ju, Ryom Chol Song, Jo Kyong Chol, Yun Tong Hyon, Kim Yong Chol, Pak Jong Chon, Yun Tong Hui, Kim Thaek Gu, Pak Tong Hak, Rim Kwang Il, Choe Pu Il, O Il Jong, Kim Kyong Ok, Ri Jae Il, Ra Chong Il and Hong Yong Chil.
