    DefenceDog: North Korea Admitted As The Largest Supplier Of Missiles
    .
    .
    North Korea has become the largest supplier of
    different types of ballistic missiles to various
    developing countries, according to Defense
    Aerospace, with reference to a report by research
    company Forecast International. In the period
    from 1987 to 2009, North Korea has exported
    1200 missiles, representing about 40 percent of
    this market segment weapons. For comparison,
    the direct competitors in the market of ballistic
    missiles to the developing countries - Russia and
    China - have managed to export only 400 and
    270 missiles, respectively.
    The largest buyers of North Korean ballistic
    missiles were Egypt, Syria, Libya, Yemen, United
    Arab Emirates and Pakistan. About what exactly
    rocket in question was not specified. At present,
    the DPRK made a short-range ballistic missiles,
    KN-2, Hwasong-5 and Hwasong-6, medium-
    range Nodong-1, Nodong-2, Taepodong-1 and
    Musudan. It is known that in 1985 Iran had
    acquired one hundred missiles Hwasong-5 for $
    500 million. Later, on the basis of this missile Iran
    has developed its own Shahab-1.
    As noted by Forecast International, with 1994
    exports of North Korean ballistic missiles began to
    fall sharply. The main reason for this was the end
    of the Iran-Iraq war and the deployment of U.S.
    military operations in Iraq. In addition, many
    countries - the buyers of North Korean weapons
    began to open its own production line of ballistic
    missiles. As a result, North Korea increased its
    exports of components and materials for the
    production of ballistic missiles. In parallel, with the
    demand for fire doors of high quality.
    According to the Stockholm International Peace
    Research Institute (SIPRI), in the period from 1987
    to 2009 the volume of North Korea's arms
    exports amounted to $ 1.7 billion. Greatest
    demand different types of North Korean missiles
    and surface ships, with the peak demand for the
    last occurred in 2002-2004, when it had exported
    257 warships.

    Picture quality. Plus they are still stuck with liquid fuels while the world has moved into solid fuel missiles. Iran is still understandable but our dear neighbor... tsk tsk.
