Korea’s fearsome new nukes are capable of destroying a US naval base 6,000 miles away in CALIFORNIA, top missile expert warns
The missile is currently estimated to have a range of 4,000-5,000 miles – enough to reach Alaska or Hawaii, according to aerospace engineer John Schilling.
He said: “If theHwasong-14is put together the way we think it is, it can probably do a bit better than that when all the bugs are worked out.”
Speaking to 38 North – a monitoring project linked to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA – Schilling warned the rocket is “likely” to be able to deliver a half-tonne warhead to San Diego within two years.
Schilling added: “The North Koreans won’t be able to achieve this performance tomorrow, but they likely will eventually.”
At present it would be “lucky to hit even a city-sized target”, due to limits to its re-entry technology, he said.
But with “a year or two of additional testing and development”, he added, “it will likely become a missile that can reliably deliver a single nuclear warhead to targets along the US west coast, possibly with enough accuracy to destroy soft military targets like naval bases”, such as that at San Diego in California.
