NORTH Korea may be well versed in keeping their arsenal of deadly weapons a closely guarded secret – but there is one weapon in sight that could launch a horrific strike on Seoul.

South Korea and its capital may seem some distance from the war-mongering north, but actually, Seoul lies little more than 30 miles from the border of the hermit state.

The demilitarised zone (known as the DMZ) is supposedly a buffer zone between the two warring nations, but North Korea houses a whole host of enemy artillery pieces.

Realistically only a small number could reach Seoul, despite Kim Jong Un warning he would turn the DMZ into a “sea of fire”.

But Pyongyang’s secret weapon – other than its nuclear warheads – is the enormous 170 mm Koksan super gun.

The combat-tested system can launch shells at targets as far as 37 miles away when using rocket-assisted projectiles.

But mounted on the hull of a Chinese Type 59 tank, the weapon leaves its crew and operators exposed to the elements.

This type of weapon is seen as a throwback to the class of long-range guns that were prolific in the first half of the 20th century.

Often used in the 1950s, the systems were deployed on lightly armoured self-propelled carriages and also acquired the role of firing tactical nuclear munitions.
