    Pyongyang, May 28 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the DPRK State Affairs Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA), watched the test of new-type anti-aircraft guided weapon system organized by the Academy of National Defence Science.

    The respected Supreme Leader was told about the test program for new weapon system at the observation post before ordering the start of its test-fire.

    Watching the successful test, he said ardently:

    Seeing such a perfect new-type anti-aircraft guided weapon system, I miss the General more a lot. That weapon system is a posthumous one the development of which had been guided by him with much effort since the start. The General would have been very glad to see this perfect weapon system as he had put his heart and soul into the work to bolster up the state anti-aircraft capability until the last moments of his life.

    He told KPA commanding officers and officials of the academy that the weapon system's efficiency to detect and track targets has remarkably improved and its hitting accuracy has also increased, compared with those of last year. Some defects in the weapon system, discovered last year, were perfectly overcome to stand the test, he said, adding: This weapon system, whose operation capability has been thoroughly verified, should be mass-produced to deploy in all over the country like forests so as to completely spoil the enemy's wild dream to command the air, boasting of air supremacy and weapon almighty.

    He set forth highly important tasks for the strategy for development of modern anti-aircraft guided weapon system of Korean style.

    Accompanying him were Hwang Pyong So, Ri Yong Gil, O Kum Chol, Kim Kwang Hyok, Ri Pyong Chol, Kim Jong Sik and Jong Sung Il. -0-

    KN-09 SAM which uses HQ-9 technology and possibly HQ-16. Is this shocking? no sense China has been delivering the DPRK high end weapons including a new ICBM technology.

    What level of cooperation does Russia have with North Korea's military and defense industry?

    there is possibilities that the KN-09 SAM uses some S-300 tech but very little, and they got ~40 BTR-80As in 2010, in which they cloned and now manufacture under license, other than that our defense levels with the DPRK is very low level.
    in 2015 they asked if we could supply them with a squadron of SU-35s but was denied. Like i said earlier the Chinese have really invested in the DPRK's defence industry, but that is because the DPRK is more of a national interest/security area for China than us.
