Taep'o-dong-2 Launch Facility Infrastructure Year 2000

This illustration shows what the Taep'o-dong-2 launch site looked like in the year 2000 after the rebuild from the Taep'o-dong-1 limited program. New construction on this site would continue for several years. The site also houses the original Scud-B test launch site as well as the new taller gantry umbilical tower and bunker block house for the launch crew. This launch site only has a few unpaved dirt, gravel access roads with no strategic protection surrounding it. Off site there is a horizontal assembly ready building as well as a range control observation site and the static test firing infrastructure.
