Coreia do Norte testa drone nuclear submarino

By Jordi Bou

January 19, 2024 - A Coreia do Norte diz ter levado a cabo um teste do seu sistema nuclear submarino em resposta ªas recentes manobras militares da Coreia do Sul, EUA e Japão.

The test is in response of this week‘s joint military drills by South Korea, the United States and Japan, state media KCNA said on Friday.

It is the fourth time state media has reported on the country’s “Haeil” unmanned underwater
vehicle (UUV) development, a kind of torpedo North Korea says can be fitted with tactical nuclear warheads.

Dubbed “Haeil”, meaning tsunami, is intended to sneak into enemy waters and create a large radioactive wave through an underwater explosion.

The test comes in North Korea as tensions rise on the Korean Peninsula, with Pyongyang becoming increasingly fiery in its rhetoric on preparing the country for war.
