RoKAF F-16 dropped Spice 2000 PGM in East Sea shortly after North Korea launched Hwasong-15 ICBM

South Korea’s military was well prepared for North Korea’s launch of Hwasong-15 ICBM on Nov. 29. Six minutes after the missile lifted off, the South launched a 20-minute live-fire drill starting from 0323hrs.

The Army launched a Hyunmoo-II ballistic missile while a Haesong-II ship-to-surface cruise missile was fired from a Navy warship. The Air Force dropped a Spice 2000 precision guided munition from a F-16.

A statement from South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said the aim of the drill is “to devastate the enemy’s missile base amid the military keeping its eye on the North’s possible provocations through its reconnaissance and surveillance system.”
