It's unclear what the capabilities are for the current nuclear warheads stockpiled by North Korea.
GMLRS Alternative Warhead rockets are all-weather, time-critical, rapidly deployable guided munitions that return precision area-effects capability to the battlefield commander, said Ken Musculus, vice president of Tactical Missiles at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.
Lee Chun-geun, at South Korea's Science and Technology Policy Institute, said the missiles were believed to be carrying warheads with trigger devices but not plutonium or uranium, to see whether those warheads could detonate properly.
The Rodong missile can fire a 1 tonne (1,100 lb) warhead a distance of up to 2,000km (1,250 miles), the official said.
In separate images, Kim observed the object described by KCNA as a warhead tip.
The company said that in tests, the Orbital ATK warheads with Lethality Enhanced Ordnance (LEO) technology achieved the Army's stated requirements for area effects, but left behind no unexploded ordnance, a major accomplishment for this warhead design.
The Alternative Warhead is designed to replace old MLRS submunition warheads.
China's decision to outfit its missiles with multiple warheads could add more fuel to a regional arms race
Experts say the delivery vehicle of choice for the North's first nuclear warhead would most likely be the mid-range Rodong missile, which has a design range of 1,300 km (800 miles).
The alternative warhead is designed to engage the same target set and achieve the same area-effects requirement as the GMLRS submunitions warhead, but without the lingering danger of unexploded ordnance.
The Defense Ministry announced Monday the successful testing of two new missiles, including a long-range missile with multiple warheads, a first for Iran.
ADANA (CyHAN)- As on Thursday Turkish Police seized 1200 warheads and ten launchpads in a truck in southern province of Adana en-route to Syria, Police started an immediate operation to several addresses including a lathe shop where allegedly some of rocket warheads were produced.
