North Korea rolls out most long-range nuclear missiles ever at military parade

Five new launch vehicles likely designed to carry solid-fuel ICBMs served as finale, state media images show

North Korea unveiled more nuclear weapons than it ever has at a single time during a military parade on Wednesday, including a new apparent solid-fuel long-range missile and at least 11 previously tested intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).

State media images show five new launch vehicles that appear designed to carry solid-fueled ICBMs and served as the pageant’s grand finale. The transporter erector launchers (TELs) carried large missile canisters, but the missiles themselves were not visible.
