New device designed to penetrate armor of North Korea’s Songun-ho tanks

South Korea plans to mass-produce a new indigenous medium-range anti-tank guided missile (ATGM), the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) announced on Thursday in a written statement.

DAPA and the Defense Agency of Technology and Quality (DTaQ) reported that the South had “successfully” carried out a live-fire test of its first domestically-produced anti-tank guided weapon on Tuesday at Pocheon in Gyeonggi Province.
