North Korea missile test is a ‘major threat’ to US says Jack Keane
Kim Jong-un is said to have sent a “grateful message” after the drones were successfully tested. Daily NK reports North Korea has built a number of unmanned drones which can be used for both reconnaissance and attack.

These could be used for “pincer attacks” on South Korean or western troops.
Suicide drones, which fly into their target then detonate, were used to devastating effect last year by Azerbaijan during its conflict with Armenia.
In January Kim Jong-un described the development of drones as an “important task” during a congress of North Korea’s governing communist party.
