UN Report: Progresses in N. Korean SLBM Tech

A UN report says that the North is now closer to being able to launch multiple missiles simultaneously from a single submarine.
 
The report warned that North Korea is making rapid progresses in developing submarine-launched ballistic missiles(SLBM) and missile-firing submarines.
 
The Washington Free Beacon on Thursday reported on the UN report drafted by a panel of experts who conducted research on the Gorae-class North Korean submarine from which the regime previously launched an SLBM, called KN-11.
 
Photos of the North Korean submarine in the report showed a modification to its launch platform which is believed to have solved ejection and stability problems.
 
The report also states that the shift from a liquid to a solid fuel engine in the KN-11 is a major technological development, “affording greater stability, quicker preparation and longer fuel storage".
 
In regard to this revelation the report called on the UN member states to avoid exporting dual-use commercial items that could bolster the regime’s submarine missile program.
