“The cruise missile unveiled today is a precision-guided weapon that can identify and strike the office window of the North’s command headquarters,” said South Korean defense ministry spokesman Kim Min-Seok, in a video presentation of the new missile, according to a report in Agence France-Presse.
The ministry official added that the missile has “deadly destructive power” that could “restrain the enemy headquarters’ activities in a war situation,” according to AFP.
South Korea has been on military alert since North Korea’s nuclear test on Tuesday, various media reported.
