"North Korea has used Russian technology to develop a new, intermediate-range missile that may be the most capable and accurate system in Pyongyang's arsenal," Reuters reports."American officials said the missile is based on the Russian SSN6, a submarine-launched ballistic missile deployed in 1969 with a range up to 3,400 miles."But the North Korea missile doesn't appear to be quite as fearsome, according to Global Security Newswire. It "is land-based and does not have the range to reach the United States, a U.S. source said."
