Photos reveal North Korea’s experimental tank modifications

Modification aimed at enhancing anti-tank and anti-aircraft capabilities: experts

Pictures of North Korean tanks released during a recent training exercise show that the Korean Peoples' Army (KPA) has fitted them with some experimental modifications, long-time DPRK military observers told NK News on Monday.

The modifications are most likely aimed at enhancing its counter ROK-U.S. capabilities, but it remains to be seen if these new designs could actually help overcome the KPA's long-term weaknesses against the alliance, experts said, or whether they are simply for show.
