North Korea’s nuclear capabilities took a giant step forward on Saturday, state media reported, with the successful underwater launch of a ballistic missile.

KCNA, the country’s official news agency, reported that the KN-11 ballistic missile system was successfully launched in a test fire from a submerged submarine.

Saturday’s test, which marks the first successful launch by the rogue state of an underwater nuclear-capable ballistic missile dramatically extends the reach of North Korea’s nuclear arsenal. If deployed the KN-11 system would allow North Korean submarines ballistic missile submarines to approach the coastline of virtually any nation undetected and deliver a nuclear device to targets within 190 miles.

Observers noted that Saturday’s test fell far short of the KN-11’s design range, traveling less than 20 miles. But a US official told CNN that the test showed that Pyongyang had made great strides in recent months.

“North Korea’s sub launch capability has gone from a joke to something very serious. The US is watching this very closely.”

South Korea condemned the test, calling on its northern neighbor to “refrain from additional provocations.”
