Kangdong Artillery Corps

This unit is forward deployed near the DMZ in the Hwanghae-bukdo Pyongan-namdo areas. The unit is equipped with between five and six artillery brigades armed with 122mm, 130mm, and 152mm self-propelled artillery pieces. Six additional Artillery Brigades are equipped with 122mm and 240mm MRL's.

This unit is considered by many analysts as being critical to North Korean offensive and defensive operations. It is thought that in the opening minutes of a war that this unit along with the 620th Artillery Corps would fire the first rounds of the war at multiple targets within South Korea including ROK Army and US Army targets as well as civilian targets in Seoul and elsewhere.
