>they don't have a guidance system

They regularly demonstrate the ability to strike a 100m-sixed island off their coast. And, even assuming they had no tech more advanced than the SCUDS they had in the 90s... inertial navigation is still enough to get a 1km CEP.

>can't miniaturize nukes

The nukes they've shown off are of adequate size to fit on their larger missiles at least. Again, assuming they've made exactly no progress at all, which is groundless.

I mean, they launched more missiles in 2022 than any other year before it despite all of the economic lockdown of COVID, do maybe they do have some secret peasant compost.

How far will inertial nav get them to a target?

They haven't shown off any nukes. They just did big booms underground.

No covid protections means they're banking on a lot of methane from those pesky citizens dying of starvation.

Within 1km. And that's just what the SCUDS built in the 70s had.

No, there's been KCNA broadcasts sitting KJU touring nuclear facilities where they showed the alleged warheads.

Even the low-tech guidance systems required enourmous manufacturing skills that far exceed the papier-maché skills of NK.

Weird that you'd so easily consume their news clips as fact-based.

No, they don't. North Korea has been exporting SCUD missiles since the 80s. They, demonstrably, have the tech to build them.

They have also demonstrated higher accuracy missiles that indicate satnav integration. This isn't a hypothetical, it is a "There is video and civilian satellite imagery confirming it."
