North Korea’s latest missile puts Australia in range experts say

North Korea’s successful launch of an intercontinental ballistic test missile, that experts believe can travel more than 6700km, brings parts of Australia into range for the rogue nation.

North Korea’s state media said yesterday’s launch was ordered and supervised by leader Kim Jong Un and sent the Hwasong-14 933km to an altitude of 2802 km over a flight time of 39 minutes.

US missile analyst David Wright said that would give it a potential range of over 6700km, which would in theory have the capability of striking northern parts of Australia, including Darwin and Cairns.

Mr Wright said the available figures implied the missile had “a maximum range of roughly 6,700 km on a standard trajectory”.
