How Might North Korea Test an ICBM?

http://38north.org/2017/01/jschilling011217/

Quote
In his 2017 New Year’s Address, Kim Jong Un mentioned (among many other things) that North Korea had “entered the final stage of preparation for the test launch of intercontinental ballistic missile.” It should be noted that this was neither the focus of his speech—which, for the most part, was a list of last year’s accomplishments—nor was it an announcement that a test would occur any time soon. Quite possibly, it was a signal to the new dealmaker-in-chief of the United States that North Korea might be ready to make a deal: to not conduct the provocative test for the right price. Still, we should consider the possibility that a test may occur in the near future. In which case, how might this happen and what might it mean?

Can the US Prevent North Korea from Testing an ICBM?

http://38north.org/2017/01/melleman012717/


Figure 1. The KN-14, which has only two stages, can safely be launched to various ranges without risk of the first stage striking foreign territory.


Figure 2. Launching the three-stage KN-08 to the east risks having the second stage land on Japanese territory. This would likely deter North Korea from choosing the KN-08 for its initial ICBM test launch.

"The missile appears to be a modified intermediate-range Musudan ballistic missile possibly equipped with a solid fuel engine, not a medium-range Rodong missile,"

Looks a land vehicle version of their SLBM. Lots of views of the launch in the video. Exhaust looked pretty clean with almost no sparklers like in previous launches.

Here is the North Korean video of the simultaneous launch of four ballistic missiles. Are these Hwasong-7 missiles?

Looks like Scud derivatives.

These are called Hwasong-7 by North Korea. Also called Scud-D in the West.

The fifth TEL might have simply been a backup in case one of the four main TELs had a problem prior to launch.

On March 22, North Korea test fired another missile, which ended in failure shortly after launch.

The missile was launched near Kalma in eastern Wonsan province, where North Korea previously attempted to launch its mobile-launched Musudan intermediate-range ballistic missile.
