Kim Jong Un Inspects Long-range Artillery Sub-unit of KPA Unit
| Pyongyang, March 11 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un Monday inspected a long-range artillery sub-unit of KPA Unit 641 whose mission is to strike and wipe out the enemies on Paekryong Island.
Expressing expectation and conviction that the soldiers of the sub-unit would remain true to the Songun revolutionary leadership of the party, he gave them a pair of binoculars and an automatic rifle as gifts and had a picture taken with them.
He received a detailed report from the commanding officers on the combat preparedness of the sub-unit.
He highly praised the sub-unit for having made perfect combat preparations as required by the operational technological plan of the Supreme Command, grasped all enemy targets and waited for the issue of an order to fire.
Seeing Juche artillery pieces of the sub-unit, he assigned to it the duty to blow up the headquarters of the puppet sixth marine brigade and its affiliated marine battalions through merciless firepower strikes if the enemies on Paekryong Island make a provocation.
He assessed the time for preparing shooting while guiding the firepower training of the soldiers of the sub-unit.
After watching the firepower training of the artillerymen, he praised them for being fully prepared to fire shells right now.
A modern war is an artillery war and the combat preparations of artillerymen is the one of the KPA, he said, setting forth the tasks which would serve as guidelines for making perfect combat preparations of the unit.
Each day at present is little short of a real war state in the true sense of the word and for the artillerymen to become master cracks is a combat task which brooks no delay, he said.
He underscored the need to steadily study and round off new artillery war methods of Korean style in line with the improved arms and equipment of the unit and the changing operational scenarios of the enemies, meticulously organize and command artillery operations and combats and thus give fullest play to the might of artillery pieces.
Saying that he attaches importance to this artillery unit, he underlined the need to deal blows of justice at the enemies through unimaginably deadly strikes and wipe out the group of aggressors to the last man, if they recklessly provoke.
He looked round the education room and bedroom of a company under the sub-unit to take deep care of the soldiers' living.
He expressed great satisfaction again over the fact that the commanding officers and soldiers of the units stationed in the western sector of the front have turned all the operation theatres into impregnable fortresses to defend the party, the revolution, the country and its people at the cost of their lives.
The areas in the western sector of the front are the biggest hotspot where a war can break out right now due to the reckless provocations of the enemies for aggression, he noted, underlining the need to maintain the maximum alert as required by a touch-and-go situation and make powerful retaliatory strikes at the enemies if they intrude into seas of the country even 0.001mm on which the DPRK's sovereignty is exercised.
He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Kim Kyok Sik, Kim Yong Chol, Pak Jong Chon, Rim Kwang Il and An Ji Yong.
