This overstatement of North Korea's military strength is partially a result of ExecutiveMeddling out of fear of being BannedInChina, as the antagonists were originally meant to be an alliance of Chinese and North Korean soldiers (who could conceivably invade ''some'' of the aforementioned nations before international intervention would take place).

* ''MercenariesPlaygroundOfDestruction'' takes place in the DPRK; the Korean People's Army is 'Always Hostile' for some reason, as the place was invaded by just about everyone. As mentioned above, enemies can come out from bunkers in the mountains. And while you can blow a few up, they come back later.

North Korea has two missiles that could potentially be used as [=ICBMs=], the Nodong and improved versions of Taepodong rockets, to use their US ReportingNames, in reference to their first spotting location ([[FreudWasRight so, not what you think]]). However, the reliability of these rockets is much debated (the Unha orbital launcher, which [[EpicFail failed spectacularly]] each time it launched,[[note]]until December 2012[[/note]] is almost universally considered to be a barely-modified Taepodong-2). To be honest, thought, failures are pretty normal during testing of the new rockets, and it's not that the North has had many opportunities to test them, given the international pressure. So the rocket launches ended up in the same "bargaining chip threats" bin as the nuclear tests.

The North Korean People's Army is composed of the KPA Ground Force, the Korean People's Navy, and the Korean People's Air Force, plus the Korean People's Strategic Rocket Forces (Formerly known as the Artillery Guidance Bureau) which handles North Korea's nuclear missiles...meaning that they emulated the PRC's military structure. The People's Republic of China is also their biggest foreign provider of materiel and has been allied with them since 1961.

1961. The North Korean military has built a network of underground facilities around the country in the event of an attack.



Like the KPA and KPN, the KPAF does not lack in quantity but has serious issues with quality. The majority of their 1700 aircraft are Cold War era relics, which only roughly 400 more modern fighters acquired from Russia and China. They even have a number of [[SchizoTech biplane transports]] that they favor because [[BoringButPractical they can be operated from short, improvised landing strips and are notoriously hard to detect on radar]]. KPAF military doctrine is mostly based off the old Soviet air doctrine, as well as their experiences with American heavy bombing during the Korean War. As a result, the KPAF is mostly concerned with air defence, mostly consisting of fighters and interceptors. This is complemented by the world's densest air defence network, with some 12,000 [[MoreDakka Anti-Aircraft Guns]], [[MacrossMissileMassacre up to 1000 heavy SAM's]], and some 17,000 Man Portable Air Defence systems.

Their most advanced air-to air fighter is the Mig-29U/B fighter from the 1990s, purchased from Russia. The KPAF only possess 30 such planes and since it is incredibly valuable to the KPAF, only the best pilots are allowed to fly it and the plane is given the important task of defending Pyongyang's airspace. The most numerous and widely fielded fighter in the KPAF inventory is the Mig-21PFM, a fighter from the 1950s and 1960s.

systems. The North Koreans may lack in sophistication when it comes to air defense, but they make up for it with brute force and sheer quantity. The KPAF also operates hidden underground bases and airfields built into mountains. Satellite imagery shows runways leading into mountainsides all around the country, meant to hide aircraft from sight and attack.

...Or not as the case may be. On the 12th of December 2012, North Korea finally succeeded in putting a satellite in orbit. Their three-stage missile flew south over the Yellow Sea and Okinawa before debris crashed into the sea northeast of the Philippines. Seriously though, either this is the last in a long bout of saber rattling, or a sign that North Korea is developing a ballistic delivery system to strike at the west coast of the United States.
