The North Korean People’s Army publicly displayed for the first time its new long-range road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missiles during a military parade in Pyongyang on 15 April.

The missile of the new road-mobile intercontinental systems is carried in a large canister that completely enclosed the missile mounted on an eight wheels trailer. There is no precise information about this missile system.
