The precise capabilities and specifications of the missile are unknown; even the fact of its production and deployment are controversial.
The No Dong 2 is a medium-range, road-mobile, liquid propellant, single warhead, ballistic missile. It is believed to be an improved version of the No Dong 1 missile which traces its lineage to the ‘Scud C’ missile. The No dong 2 is believed to have a smaller warhead, a longer range, and better accuracy, although precise differences are speculative. It is likely that Chinese scientists worked directly with North Korea to build the No dong 2, though it is possible that it was designed domestically using PRC assistance and technology provided on earlier missile projects.
North Korea – On a 10 October 2010 military parade a new SAM system, complete with Flap Lid radars, was displayed. North Korea announced it to be "an anti-ballistic defense system", capable of shooting down aircraft at distances of 90 kilometers and at altitudes of up to 30 kilometers. Japanese media reported the system to be a locally designed S-300 derivative, a fact that is corroborated by the presence of Flap Lid radars. However, this and the origin of the missiles have yet to be confirmed
To put this bluntly, no one except North Korea knows what they have or where it is.
We do know that much of what you can see is likely to be dummy installations so that the US can waste their ammo, bombs and missiles on.

So it goes on, hours of research and no real information.
I pray for peace! The first tenant of Warfare is "KNOW YOUR ENEMY." The West does not have a clue!
To all those posters who say "Just go in and wipe them all out" I would reply, "Yea mate, you lead the charge."

(EDITORIAL from Korea Times on April 13)
Kim Jong-un's 1st year
Only way to survive is dropping missiles, atomic bombs
A year after Kim Jong-un became North Korea’s leader, the reclusive state remains as unknowable as ever. While the daily war threats issued from the North have pushed regional tension to its highest level in decades, people are dancing in the streets of Pyongyang.
One foreign magazine, quoting some citizens, ascribed it to North Koreans’ confidence in victory based on their near-completed nuclear arsenal.

North Korea has completed preparations for launching multiple missiles with various ranges that can put South Korea, Japan and U.S. bases in Guam within striking range, Seoul officials said.

B2 and F22 would not have a problem but B52 would be sitting ducks, thus would be a F22 and F117 and B2 B1 in the first round then the old er B52 f111 f15 f18 and the rest of the up dated, ones including the "Intruders" F35? to make up the second round
