Awwww, the poor missile is stricken with peyronies...How awful!

Overall, the missile looks like something dreamed up by Hasbro.
"Yes! Let's put missiles on a bigger missile! And lasers? Yes! Strap a few sharks on the side too!"

G.I. Joe's fall from grace...

The sad thing is that people will be killed or sent to work camps because of this embarrassment.

Those are just initial booster rockets on the ICBM.  Just like our spacecraft have booster rockets that separate.  They get it off the ground and moving and then come off.

The old people behind Kim Jong-un look like they're desperately awaiting the sweet release of death.
 
2017-04-15 08:22:19 PM  
Gee, it could be a Russian missile that is designed that way so the boosters  break away from the main unit when it stages but that would take upwards of 5 minutes to check on using the internet so its best to just post a video and take wild ass guesses that are dead wrong.

To explain further: "wonky" nosecone is deliberate. When the boosters detach, you want there to be an aerodynamic reason for them to separate from the main missile. If they are symmetric, the boosters are more apt to try and collide with the main missile, and you will not go to space today.

/ I'm aware it's a SAM, not ICBM.

Wow, lil Kim looked nervous.  Eyes darting all around.  His father would not be proud of such a display of weakness.

Shoulda gone with the Revell brand and just changed the decals! Back in the day there was no snap together models you got high on plastic cement!
 
2017-04-15 08:26:22 PM  
The offset nosecones are to direct the boosters away from the second stage after seperation so they don't end up like that one rocket you made in KSP that blew up because the boosters stuck to it.

Damn, I was just going to post that I need something like that in KSP so I can separate large boosters more cleanly.

You never saw it? He always struck me as the guy who gets extra extra extra caramel at Starbucks because he smoked his taste buds dull.  He's got that kind of fat, not the "I never leave the table, I just bring it with me" kind.

Never noticed, no.

Imagine how fat he'd be were he not a smoker.

Sure does. But it was designed in the 60s and has an operational range of 190 miles. So what exactly is it going to hit? Seoul maybe, at best?

Basically Korea is Seoul and backwaters.  It might actually be "Greater Seoul", but expect all the growing bits to be within range.  I think they are trying to build a new "government city", but it really looks like they are trying the civilization "one city challenge".

Presumably making that "Korelev Cross" that never seems to happen in KSP.

They haven't tested the nuke yet, Best Korea flinched first.
We were supposed to have a nuke test as of late Friday night, instead they threw a parade.
I am amazed, and will be the first to admit that I was expecting them to throw a test and us to retaliate, but we are at the same place with NK that we have been forever.
It sounds like China and Russia are collaborating to keep NK in check now...
Glad shiat didn't hit the fan this weekend, I did not expect this at all.  Then again, with this administration it was easy to expect the worst, yet here we are.
I was way off.

Obviously that poor, young, misguided missile got a major woody simply from being in such close proximity of its Dear Leader.

This is what happens when someone Dunning-Kruger's a military parade. There's nothing wrong with that nosecone, as people upthread have shown.
 
2017-04-15 08:56:09 PM  
If we cannot beat the norks militarily maybe we should just kick back and watch as global warming destroys what little agricultural production they currently have. You can't live on amphetamines alone forever.
