USFK Deploys Precision Cruise Missiles

The U.S. Forces Korea has deployed a dozen long-range air-launched precision-guided cruise missiles in Gunsan, North Jeolla Province.

The JASSM (Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile) is capable of hitting major facilities in Pyongyang with pinpoint precision from skies south of the military demarcation line.

It is to be used in “decapitation” operations against the North Korean regime and has a range of 370 km and a range error probable of a mere 2 m. It will be carried by F-16 fighter jets.

It seems that the USFK deployed the JASSM missiles right after a controversy flared up late last month over an omission of the report on the introduction of four additional launchers of a Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense battery from the U.S. here.

The South Korean Air Force tried to buy JASSM missiles for itself, but the U.S. refused because it did not want to technology to become known. Instead Seoul bought Taurus long-range air-to-ground missiles from Germany.

South Korean and U.S. intelligence authorities have recently started collecting intelligence from defectors on the apartment complexes in Pyongyang where many senior North Korean officials live.

“Senior officials in the Workers Party and military live in certain areas in Pyongyang. I was paid by South Korean and American intelligence agents for some information about that,” a defector from Pyongyang said.

The precise coordinates will be useful for precision strikes or the infiltration of special commandos in a war.
