Un-raker: Laser guns designed to take out Kim’s drones

The tubby tyrant’s southern neighbours are developing technology similar to the classic James Bond film Moonraker, which will take Kim’s drones out of the sky.

South Korea has made the decision to accelerate the development of the technology after discovering a number of tactical drones on the border in recent years.

The despot nation has denied ownership of any drones captured in South Korea, but it is believed that North Korea has 300 surveillance vehicles and around 10 attack drones.

It is also believed that they are building larger unmanned aerial vehicles, which can be operated by remote control.

Drones are widely used as surveillance tools because their small size makes it difficult for them to be picked up on any radar.

Military officials said that even when drones are detected, it is difficult to shoot them down because of their size and shape, even with anti-aircraft weapons.

This is the latest move in a long-running battle between the two Korean nations.

Ruthless dictator Kim Jong-un announced at the start of the year that work on North Korea’s mobile nuclear missile was nearly complete.

The South countered this by creating a crack team of special operatives to take out the Communist leader before he can launch one of his nukes.

South Korean defence minister, Han Min-koo, said: “We are planning to set up a special brigade with the goal of removing or paralysing North Korea’s wartime command structure.”
