Description
The No-Dong-B (BM-25 Musudan) is a medium range ground-to-ground ballistic missile based on the technology of the Russian-made ballistic missile Scud-C. The system was developed by the North Korean defence industry and was unveiled for the first time to the public during a military parade on 10 October 2010 celebrating the Korean Worker's Party's 65th anniversary. The missile is described as a copy of the Soviet R-27 submarine-launched ballistic missile. 2003 it was reported that North Korea was working on a new missile, is based on the Soviet R-27 submarine-launched missile. North Korea was thought to have acquired the technology sometime between 1992 and 1998. In 2007 it was established that North Korea had fully deployed the missile in it road-mobile-mode. By March 2009 it had been realized that the missile was deployed in North Korea as a separate strategic rocket forces military division charged with it deployment.

Launcher unit
The missile is carried on a truck similar to the Russian-made MAZ-547A (MKZT-7916) with 12 wheels. In connection with an increase in the missile launch weight, the MAZ-547A (12x12) chassis was designed and manufactured in 1970. This had a payload of 58 t and high mobility with as minimized dead weight as possible (a more than twofold payload to dead weight ratio). The basic designs for the system were developed based on the condition of ensuring its independence and the SPL (Self-Propelled Launcher) and TL (Tractor Launcher) capability to pass bridges and roads of different categories. One of the major requirements to the design of the MAZ-547A base chassis was to enable its use for mounting, apart from the missile container, the missile pre-launch preparation and launch units and hardware given a long-term period of the missile duty at a temperature of +50 to -40 °C. This was the world's first created system capable of launching an intercontinental ballistic missile with a comparatively short pre-launch preparation time from any route point. The Russian tests of the system mounted on the MAZ-547A chassis were completed in December 1974 with successful launches of missiles on the Pacific area. The missile is raised to the vertical position at the back of the TEL before launch.
Missile
The No-Dong-B missile is based on the Soviet R-27 submarine-launched ballistic missile, which is is a single-stage, storable liquid-propellant missile. The No-Dong-B missile has a range of approximately 4,000 km maximum. The accuracy of the missile is believed to be 1,600 m CEP (Circular Error Probable) when deployed at maximum range. The missile is equipped with a 1,200 kg separating warhead that can deploy 800 kg of HE-unitary, chemical, submunitions, biological, or nuclear weapons. According to one report, the new missile is 12 meters long and 1.5 meters in diameter.
Guidance system
The guidance is inertial with an accuracy of 1,600 m CEP. 3
Combat use
The No-Dong-B can be used against large, soft targets like cities, airports, or harbors. The No-Dong-B is a tactical system designed for general bombardment. Without a nuclear payload, there is no way to compensate for the poor accuracy of the system. The high explosive warhead would be capable of inflicting large amounts of damage to a facility, but the only way to ensure a successful hit would be to launch en masse.
