Pak Jong Chon, a North Korean marshal, said: “The railway-borne missile system serves as an efficient counter-strike means capable of dealing a harsh multi-concurrent blow to the threat-posing forces.”

He added there are plans to expand the railway-borne missile regiment to a brigade-size force and to conduct training to gain “operational experience for actual war".

Adam Mount, a senior fellow at the Federation of American Scientists, said on Twitter: “Rail mobile missiles are a relatively cheap and reliable option for countries seeking to improve the survivability of their nuclear forces.
