By 2022, North Korea has tested more than 100 ballistic missiles, but none of the solid-fueled ICBMs were launched in mid-April. Pyongyang claims its rapid succession of tests is in response to US and South Korean military exercises, although experts believe North Korea is trying to advance its weapons development and then win concessions from rivals in the subsequent diplomatic process.

The exercises planned by South Korea and the United States, which have been called “extermination combined firepower maneuvers,” would be the largest of their kind so far. The exercises have been held 11 times since they began in 1977, according to South Korea’s defense ministry.

Officials said this year’s U.S. and South Korean drills will include stealth fighters, helicopter gunships, tanks and multiple rocket launchers. At first it was not clear how many soldiers were participating, although the exercises last year in 2017 – the most recent until this year – brought together some two thousand soldiers and 250 weapons from the two countries.
