SEOUL - North Korea conducted a test of a submarine-launched ballistic missile on August 24. The missile flew about 500 kilometers before crashing into the waters of the Sea of Japan. The SLBM may have a full range of 1,000 kilometers.

This new missile may offer North Korea the ability to evade new anti-missile system planned for South Korea and Japan. North Korea's fleet consists of more than 70 aging, limited-range submarines - a mix of Chinese, Russian and locally made boats.
