LOL -- cute!  Poor doofus has no clue, does he?  Must admit, he's a lot funnier than many of *our* alleged comedians.  Thanks for the chuckle!  ;)

There is not just an external audience.

The reveal of Pukguksong-1 and later Pukguksong-2 upped the ante. Solid fueled rockets always do.

One analysis says that they might be based on RT-15M 1st and second stages respectively.
Other analysis by 38north came to other, larger diameters, so RT-15M would not be a fit.

Having access to solid fueled Sowjet SLBM plans is a big deal, even if they were never fully developed.
The tracked TEL looks somewhat like the RT-15 (SS-14), biggest difference is that the original was hot launched. [link]

If Norberts size analysis checks out the chance that NK actually has something for their large ICBM canisters rises drastically. SS-13 clone anyone? - Not that they have some, that it looks like they want them to look that way...

That articles mentions that two April launches were by KN-17. Don't know what the North Korean designation is.

"...two tests of the KN-17 medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM) on April 5 and 16..."

That's a file photo of the 11 February launch of Pukguksong-2. I don't believe photos of the actual launch have been released yet. The range is given as 700 km, so this might be a Hwasong-7 launch.

Information is still sparse and subject to change but it does not look like a modified SCUD.
Roughly 700km range but highly lofted, 30 minute flight time, 2000km appogee. First analysis comes to a more conventional range of 4500km. (But beware of GIGO.)

Jeffery Lewis, @armscontrolwonk thinks that it was the KN-08 version shown in the parade. [link to video] It looks like a successfull test so we'll soon know more via NK news.
