Strategy & Policy: North Korea’s Game Plan and Capability | #cybersecurity | #cyberattack

North Korea’s air force and air defense system is, in large part, out of date, the DIA said. The most advanced fighters it has are 1980s-vintage, Russian-made MiG-29s, but the bulk of the air force is “much older,” and North Korea is “one of the only air forces in the world that still operates MiG-21s, MiG-19s, MiG-17s, and MiG-15s,” the latter of which date back to the Korean War. The DPRK air force would “struggle to penetrate South Korean air defenses in an attack role,” the DIA said. North Korean pilots only get about 15 to 25 flying hours a year, so they have only basic proficiency.
