朝鲜核武器攻击范围地图

作者:    文章来源:    更新时间:2017-10-11

新闻:英国《每日星报》刊登了一幅“朝鲜核武器攻击范围地图”:

图片上,日本、中国、俄罗斯、印度全部或大部分被覆盖,澳大利亚、美国和加拿大地区少部分被覆盖。

报道称,距离朝鲜800英里处的日本极其危险;美国的阿拉斯加到朝鲜的距离为3700英里,也被覆盖;俄罗斯的莫斯科、伊朗的德黑兰和阿联酋的迪拜大约在4000英里处,处在被打击范围的边缘;文章庆幸地说,英国距离朝鲜达5200英里,这个距离使英国不必为遭受朝鲜的核攻击感到忧虑。


HOW FAR NORTH KOREA'S MISSILES CAN REACH
North Korea has redeployed some of its missiles to the country's eastern coast, a provocation and implicit warning that it just might carry through on some of its recent threats.

How far can those missiles actually reach? We can't say for sure because we don't know what kind of missiles they are. But there appear to be two most likely possibilities: either it's the Musudan missiles, as the South Korean military says, or it's the KN-08, as reported in the Japanese press, or its both. Fortunately, neither is particularly scary for the United States.

First off, here's a map showing how far North Korea's various missile systems can reach. The outermost green circle indicates the range of the Musudan: It includes Japan and South Korea but not Guam or Hawaii and certainly not the U.S. mainland.


The Musudan, though tested, is not thought to be particularly accurate. Still, it could cause some terrible mayhem in South Korea or even Japan if it were launched.

What about the range of the KN-08? Well, here's the thing about that: It sure looks like an intercontinental ballistic missile, and North Korea claims it can reach about 6,000 miles, which puts Los Angeles in range, except that no one knows if it works because it's never been tested. And that means it probably can't hit squat at long range, if it can even take off.
