South Korea's defense chief said Monday, April 15, 2013, that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is seen ready to launch missiles, but he noted that there are no signs of a full-scale war.

Pyongyang was believed to have moved intermediate-range missiles, estimated to be Musudan, to its east coast. Other missiles, including Scud and Nodong, were also believed to be mounted on mobile launchers known as the transporter-erector- launcher (TEL).

The Musudan is estimated to have a range of about 3,500 km and can reach the U.S. military base in Guam. The Scud is estimated to have a range of between 300 and 500 km, with the range for Nodong estimated at 1,300-1,500 km.

Pyongyang has threatened to attack South Korea and the U.S. as it faces tougher international sanctions following its latest nuclear test. In response, the U.S. is sending a THAAD missile-defense system to Guam and enhancing those on the West Coast, while dispatching F-22 fighter jets to South Korea and more warships to the region.
