Beyond the Ukrainian battlefield, the performance of North Korean missiles is of interest to South Korea and Japan, where military experts are eager to understand these systems to hone their own defence capabilities, said Joe Byrne, a North Korea specialist at the Royal United Services Institute defence think tank in London. Any assessment in actual operations will also be useful for the North Koreans to improve their weapons and make them more accurate, Byrne said. "North Korean state media always portrays these missiles to be highly sophisticated and accurate, yet this data may tell a different story," he told Reuters.
