(ORDO NEWS) — North Korea conducted its third official test of a hypersonic missile. During them, she was able to hit a target at a distance of 1000 kilometers.

The world is watching with interest the Korean hypersonic weapons program. As it became known, the rocket launched on Tuesday successfully hit a naval target located at a distance of about 1000 kilometers from the launch site. The tests were overseen by the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, which may indicate the progress of the program.
