Do . . . it is coming out that this was not just a knee-jerk reaction to some South Korean military exercise.

For those who don't know what a 'vacuum bomb' is, here's an explaination.

As details emerge, I truly believe this is going to get much uglier in the short term especially with the shenanigans going on today along with Sunday's planned start of military 'exercises'.

How could this be true? If it were I'd expect many more casualties (from getting their lungs damaged) and a lot less fires.

But it might be. I'm no expert on explosives.

Interesting that the source is Russian . . . you'd figure if it was some sort of nonsense, it wouldn't be coming from them.

Thought Russia was kinda on their side?????

kinda looks like a conventional rocket to me.
Do not know though if ALL the ordinance used
looked like this. But this appears to be
conventional in nature as really shown by
the small blast radius of this second pic
on the right.

Most probably a rocket from one of NK's MRLS pieces. The rockets themselves are believed to be thermobaric.

Vacuum bombs!

I had the strange image of hoovers and dysons and orecks traveling through the air.

Fuel Air Bomb explosion;



Footage of South Korea attack;



Compare explosion at 0:46 in the first vid, with the explosion at 0:12 in the second.

They do look similar to me.

Is this motive enough for ww3?

And so it begins?

really a weapon we invented. And i wouldnt be scared because the Russians always think they make stuff better then us only to be proven wrong time and time again. Like the f-22 raptor smokes the Russian made piece of junk that copies it to a T only the Russians plane is slower and less advanced and needs a pilot in the plane lol so it is only as good the Russian pilot at taking g's where our plane without a actual pilot in the plane isn't going to feel the force of the g's and can make tighter turns.

I think you're confusing artillery with artillery shells, like the old Howitzer.

North Korea's missile command is called the Artillery Guidance Bureau.

www.fas.org...

As for what was used, I'll go out on a limb and say it was either a FROG-7 missle:

en.wikipedia.org...

Or OTR-21 Tochka:

en.wikipedia.org...



NK has plenty and from what we know so far one of these could fit.

This missile looks way too big for what we saw explode on the island. And 200 of them, no way hosay!

I believe that to a large proportion of the young, war is just something that is seen on television, or in computer games - journalistic pieces in the news, footage from Apache helicopters. It is never real, unless they know of someone who is actually involved, and even then it is a distant concept surrounded by patriotism and flag waving.

When war begins to ignore borders and brings death and destruction directly to their doors, not by "terrorist" threat, then they will know just what war on a global scale truly means. I saw what it meant in my father's eyes, and he went through WW2.

When there's no more remote control to turn off propaganda laden news, and no more saving your game on the Xbox just before you get killed, then they'll realise that war isn't just the stuff of speculation and discussion.

9m does seems to be quite large, I've added a second option, which could be more likely.

100KT nuclear warhead capability is scary.

sigh - first - your video screen cap what is the FPS [ frames / seciond ] rate of your video ? artillery shells terminal velocity = [ various sources ] 250 to 350 m/s

if the vid picks the shell up at all - it will be just a streak

second - your shell burst " comparison " is a joke - you are comparing a shell bursts in soft earth with an burst against an unknown substrate

Agreed that the comparison is stretching it a bit but we do see what looks like the missile in the security footage.

Here's the vid again if you missed it:



You can see it better if you go direct to the youtube page.
