In the launch training, the DPRK also conducted ultra-low altitude flight tests of cruise missiles and tests to determine abnormal altitude adjustment and evasion flight capabilities, and selected one of each type of missile to use the air explosion strike method at a set altitude of 600 meters, which once again verified the operational reliability of the nuclear explosion control device and the detonation device.
