Kim Jong Un Guides Test-fire of New Multiple Launch Rocket System
Pyongyang, March 4 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists and their followers' flagrant moves for political and economic pressure and military aggression on the DPRK have gone to a grave phase that can no longer be overlooked. They committed a ferocious hostility of illegalizing the DPRK's independent rights as a sovereign state by adopting an unprecedented and gangster-like, new "resolution of sanctions" over its bolstering of self-defensive deterrent and legitimate launch of earth observation satellite Kwangmyongsong-4.

All the people in the DPRK are now waiting for an order of combat to annihilate the enemy with their surging wrath at the U.S. imperialists and south Korea's Park Geun Hye group of traitors.

Under such situation, there took place a test-fire for estimating the might of controlled ordnance rocket warhead for large-caliber multiple launch rocket system of new type to be deployed in the reserve artillery units of the Korean People's Army.

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, guided the test-fire on the spot.

At an observation post he learnt in detail about the planned test-fire of new-type large-caliber multiple launch rocket system and the tactical and technological specifications of controlled ordnance rocket and gave an order on starting the test-fire.

The test-fire in various ways with fragmentation mine shell, under-ground penetration shell and scattering shell showed that the ordnance rocket warhead, made in combination with high-energy material, has amazing destructivity and killing power.

Kim Jong Un was very satisfied to see controlled ordnance rocket hitting accurately and destroying to pieces the strongly-built simulated enemy personnel, tank, artillery and vehicle shelters.

He said the development of Juche weapon representing the era of the dignified Workers' Party is a proud result from the undying feats of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il, who had dedicated their mental and physical efforts to the strengthening of the Juche-based defence capability, and from the Party's policy of attaching importance to the defence science and technology. At the same time, it eloquently shows the tremendous potentials of the DPRK's self-supporting defence industry, he added.

The serial production of Korean-style large-caliber multiple launch rocket system of new type helps further strengthen the striking power of the Korean People's Army qualitatively, he said with satisfaction.

The situation has reached a very dangerous phase that can no longer be neglected as the enemies are intent on such last-ditch attempt as "beheading operation" and "collapse of social system" while working hard to violate the dignity and sovereignty of the DPRK and its right to existence, he said, adding: Now is the time for us to convert our mode of military counteraction toward the enemies into an preemptive attack one in every aspect.

It is a very foolish act for Park Geun Hye to cry for "preemptive attack" while recklessly beefing up the armed forces in league with the U.S. scoundrels, but her hysteria will precipitate only her ruin in the long run, he noted.

He said that the DPRK would see how the enemies, seeking to deprive it of the independent right to use space for peaceful purposes, talk about and move over the test-fire of its new weapons system held today, with their large-scale joint military exercises against it ahead.

He stressed that the national defence sector should deploy at an early date new-type large-caliber multiple launch rocket system and other recently- developed strike weapons in the operation areas of the Supreme Command so as not to allow the enemies to sleep in peace till the moment they meet their final end in their land.

The only way for defending the sovereignty of our nation and its right to existence under the present extreme situation is to bolster up nuclear force both in quality and quantity and keep balance of forces, he said, stressing the need to get the nuclear warheads deployed for national defence always on standby so as to be fired any moment.

He expressed belief that the officials, scientists and technicians engaged in the defence science would steadily develop new-type ultra-modern strike arms and equipment, make a fresh leaping progress in the strengthening of military capability this year greeting the Seventh Congress of the WPK and thus consolidate the country's defence capability as firm as a rock.

He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, secretary of the C.C., WPK, Hong Yong Chil and Kim Jong Sik, vice department directors of the C.C., WPK, and Army Colonel General Yun Tong Hyon, vice-minister of the People's Armed Forces.
