Just so long as that blustering bully doesn't press any buttons...

Or Kim Jong Un, for that matter.

Even I can understand this short explanation of DPRK's latest missile. (Posting on both threads as it probably has relevance to everyone.)

There is a Japanese ship between them that did not get a mention in the picture.

Young-fat-un has a good laugh with his top brass as he pulls 'Mig-15' out of the hat for the aircraft in his version of the Confederate Air Force which will get closest to the US carriers..... North Korea's Kim Jong-Un grins at air force display | Daily Mail Online

I'll give their Mig15/17s some credit. There wings didn't fall off even if they are seventy years old.

The last ones I saw in China was about twenty years ago and they had been abandoned for some time then.

Mind, if their wings fell off how would we ever hear of it ? Love to see the Nor K AF accident figures and accident reports ( if such things ever exist). I wonder who carries the can ? I guess I know what happens to them.

They probably don't do enough flying to have an accident.

The PLAAF pilots I knew at the time were lucky to get 80 hrs/year.
