North Korea’s low-tech military another cause for concern

hile North Korea’s launches of longer range missiles and it’s sixth and largest nuclear weapon test this month have generated concern, Pyongyang also has low-tech weaponry for use in any conflict with the US and its allies.

One example that doesn’t get headlines is the 300 An-2 biplanes in the North Korean airforce.

Designed in 1946, the aircraft is made largely from wood with a small engine and is difficult to detect by radar. The planes can carry as many as ten paratroops for low-level incursions, but their most unnerving application would be in dispersing biological or chemical weapons.
