S. Korean military revises assessment on N. Korean missile distance Updated: 2021-04-29 15:10:59 KST

The South Korean military has revised its assessment on how far North Korea's missiles launched toward the East Sea on March 25th traveled from an initial 450 kilometers to 600 kilometers.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff on Thursday said that a comprehensive analysis from South Korean and U.S. intel shows that the missiles traveled further while conducting a so-called "pull-up" maneuver.
Defense Minister Suh Wook on Wednesday said the revision was mainly due to a "blind spot" in South Korean radar caused by the curvature of the Earth.
He added that there are limitations in detecting how far the missile flew after descending below the Earth's horizon.
