Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, guided another firepower strike drill of long-range artillery sub-units of the Korean People’s Army on the front on March 9.
He was greeted by Army General Pak Jong Chon, chief of the General Staff of the KPA, and commanding officers of the front artillery units on the spot.
The purpose of the firepower strike drill was to inspect the sudden military counterattack capability of the long-range artillery units on the front.
Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un set forth battle circumstances to the chief of the General Staff and watched the drill at the observation post.
As an order to start the fire was given, the brave artillerymen on the front who have further sharply whetted the bayonet for the revolution with the high spirit of annihilating the enemy amid the flames of the training revolution personally kindled by the Supreme Leader and the wind of hard training for strengthening combat power, opened fire all at once.
The artillerymen on the front hit the target with excellent marksmanship in the presence of the Supreme Leader, fully demonstrating their combat power as a-match-for-a-hundred artillerymen.
Expressing great satisfaction with the result, the Supreme Leader highly appreciated the perfect combat readiness of the long-range artillery sub-units on the front.
Saying that the People’s Army should go on in the direction of further strengthening the artillery training, he set forth important tasks to improve the quality of artillery training and conduct drills under the simulated conditions of an actual war.
The might of artillery units is just the one of our army, he noted, calling for setting it as the most important task of the line of building the Juche-oriented revolutionary armed forces to strengthen the artillery force of the People’s Army into the world’s strongest arms of service that enemies are afraid of and continuing the vigorous struggle to carry it out.
