YOU COULDN’T HAVE KNOWN THAT NORTH KOREA GOT THIS.

South Korean experts say the warhead on the intermediate-range ballistic missile North Korea test-fired last weekend looks eerily like the nuclear warhead the regime revealed in early 2016.

Kim Hyo-sun reports. The claim came just over a year ago.North Korea said it had developed a nuclear warhead small enough to be fitted atop a missile.

"The nuclear bomb has been made lighter so it can be carried on a ballistic missile. This is real nuclear deterrence..."

North Korea's state-run Korean Central TV also disclosed a design drawing of the warhead,... that resembles the warhead of the Hwasong-12,the new intermediate-range ballistic missile which the regime successfully test-fired last weekend.
This shows the new ballistic missile may have been equipped with the nuclear warhead that was disclosed over a year ago.

The regime has also said it has developed a more powerful rocket engine capable of carrying a large nuclear warhead signaling that it can roll out a bigger nuclear missile soon.
