North Korea may be planning to offer for export to the Middle East an upgraded—but nevertheless simple—missile which it is beleived to have recently tested, on May 1.
The FROG-7 missile is of Soviet-origin. North Korea is believed to have increased its range and accuracy, possibly tripling its previous range of 70km, according to Geostrategy-Direct. The source of the report of a planned sale, however, is unclear.
The significance of a FROG missile sale would be relatively minor given North Korea’s willingness to proliferate more advanced systems and technologies.
