Description: The TaepoDong, also referred to as Taepo-Dong or Paektusan, is a family of long-range, multi-stage, ballistic missiles being developed by North Korea since the late 1990s with the aim to hit targets at ranges from 2,000 km to 15,000 kilometers. Eventually, the TaepoDong missiles could be fitted out with nuclear warheads providing an excellent deterrent against South Korea, Japan and the United States. Besides, these missiles are test beds for North Korea's cutting edge ballistic technology developments. TaepoDong has close ties with North Korea's space launch vehicle programs. As of early 2009, the TaepoDong program consists of three variants TaepoDong-1, TaepoDong-2 and TaepoDong-X.

The TaepoDong-X is a solid fuel ballistic missile with an estimated range of 2,500 to 4,000 kilometers. Its solid propellant represents a great advancement for North Korea's ballistic missile program. The primary goal of this new weapon is to hit United States military targets in Japan and Guam. As of early 2009, the TaepoDong-X was still under development. It may enter into service in the 2015-2020 timeframe.
