North Korean Strategic Rocket Forces: Location of the Musudan-ri launch facility
Organisations by Service Notes:
Musudan-ri is a rocket launching site in North Korea at 40°51′N, 129°40′E. It lies in southern North Hamgyong province, near the northern tip of the East Korea Bay. The area was formerly known as Taep'o-dong (대포동), from which the Taepodong rockets take their name.
Kittaeryŏng site is located in Kangwon province, which borders South Korea. It is used for launches of short to medium-range missiles and has a pad for mobile launchers.
Kalgol-dong site is located in Chagang province and houses Hwasong-5/6 missiles, targeting South Korea.
Kusŏng site is located in North P'yongan province and houses Rodong missiles. It targets U.S. forces in Japan.
Okp’yŏng-dong site is located in Kangwon province and houses Hwasong and Nodong missiles.
Pongdong-ri is a new larger missile launch site under construction, located on North Korea's west coast, about 50 km south of the North Korean-Chinese border. As of September 2008 it is 80% complete, being much more advanced and modern than the older Musudan-ru site. Even though not completed, it can currently be used to launch missiles.
There are other numerous smaller sites, scattered around the country, serving for mobile launcher pads. Some larger sites are under construction.
