North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inspected Amnokgang Tire Factory where they made tire for newly developed missile vehicle, the state media reported on Sunday without the date of his visit.

The North’s state-run television KRT showed still photographs of Kim looking around the factory and said Kim ordered to make a large size tire for the 9-axis self-propelled launching vehicle of its own style for a ‘great event in November’.

KRT didn’t elaborate the event but earlier this week the state media said a new Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) was launched from a newly developed vehicle on Wednesday (November 29) and that its warhead could withstand the pressure of re-entering the earth’s atmosphere.

Experts have cast doubt on North Korea’s ability to master the technology needed to design a warhead capable of withstanding the enormous pressure of re-entry into the earth’s atmosphere and suggested the isolated country may still be years away from developing a credible delivery vehicle for a nuclear weapon.
