Tianran Xu Interviewed by NK News: North Korea conducts cruise missile launch from new naval corvette

ONN Analyst Tianran Xu gave a comment to the NK News on the new naval corvette inspection by DPRK leader Kim Jong Un, suggesting that the ship's weak air defence could be strengthened with long-range air defence systems, possibly utilizing a previously demonstrated surface-to-air missile system on a larger vessel. Additionally, he highlighted the ship's current reliance on a man-portable air defence system (MANPADS) targeting low-flying aircraft.
