JAKARTA – North Korea announced it had tested the Haeil underwater drone. Pyongyang claims that these underwater drones can generate radioactive tsunamis on enemy territory.
Just to note, Haeil in Korean means tsunami. This weapon is part of a nuclear carrier device to be delivered to enemy territory. Here’s the greatness of the Haeil underwater drone.
Haeil Drone Triggers a Radioactive Tsunami
On Friday (24/3/2023), North Korean state media; KCNA, reported that the country’s military has tested underwater drones that can carry nuclear warheads and can generate radioactive tsunamis.
According to the KCNA report, the new weapon was tested during military drills from March 21-23, 2023.
The mission of this strategic underwater nuclear weapon is to stealthily infiltrate deep into the waters and generate super-scale radioactive tsunamis via underwater explosions to destroy enemy strike groups and operational ports.
Haeil Drones Can Be Deployed to Enemy Coasts
Named Haeil, which means tsunami in Korean, the underwater drone system is designed to attack enemy ships.
Still according to the KCNA report, these drones can be deployed to any coast and port or towed by surface ships for operations.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is also overseeing the testing. In addition, Kim Jong-un said the weapon serves as a warning to the United States and South Korea.
North Korea’s newest weapon seems to be imitating Russia’s Poseidon. But Leif-Eric Easley, professor at Ewha University in Seoul said North Korea’s latest claims should be met with skepticism.
The KCNA report said the underwater drone was stationed in the waters of South Hamgyong Province. Haeil can cruise for more than 59 hours at a depth of 80-150 meters.
