NK Pro timeline charts the key events from February 1 - February 28
North Korea displayed more nuclear weapons than ever before at a military parade in February, including large canisters and launch vehicles apparently for a new solid-fuel intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
The country also launched its first missiles since the beginning of the year, including a Hwasong-15 ICBM, what state media described as two “tactical nuclear” missiles and four “Hwasal-2 strategic cruise missiles.”
Meanwhile, the U.S. and South Korea conducted the Deterrent Strategy Committee Tabletop Exercise (DSC TTX) at the Pentagon to practice responding to a North Korean nuclear attack.
