North Korea Test-Fired Hypersonic Missile: Hwasong-8The North Korean Academy of National Defense Science has test-fired a newly-developed hypersonic missile, ‘the Hwasong-8’.

  • Hwasong series missiles used liquid-propellant engines with an ampoule fuel system. North Korea has used the ampoule fuel system for the 1st time.
  • The missile has nuclear capabilities and they have named it a ‘strategic weapon’.

About Hypersonic Missile:
i.Hypersonic are the missiles that are capable of travelling at least 5 times the speed of sound. They are more difficult to track and intercept.
ii.The ampoule is the Russian term for liquid-propellant missiles that could be fueled during production and then sent to the field in canisters.

  • Quick Launch Time: This technology reduces the launch time as it allows missiles to be pre-fuelled and then sent to the field in canisters. Thus the soldiers do not need to fuel the missiles in the field as they could potentially stay launch-ready for years.

iii.Russia, China and other countries are also developing hypersonic weapons systems. South Korea also launched a new submarine capable of firing ballistic missiles.
Note – In July 2021, Russia announced its successful launch of a hypersonic missile that reached a speed of 8659.88km/h (5381mph) from a frigate in the White Sea.
