South Korea shows off German made air launched cruse missile

Telegraph:
Bang on - the Taurus missile blows through its target 
South Korea said Wednesday it conducted its first live-fire drill for an advanced air-launched cruise missile it says will strengthen its pre-emptive strike capability against North Korea in the event of crisis.

South Korea's military said the Taurus missile fired from an F-15 fighter jet traveled through obstacles at low altitudes before hitting a target off the country's western coast.

The missile, manufactured by Germany's Taurus Systems, has a maximum range of 500 kilometers (310 miles) and is equipped with stealth characteristics that will allow it to avoid radar detection before hitting North Korean targets, according to Seoul's Defence Ministry.

This shows the missile hitting a target and blasting through a roof.  A video on the test is available at the link above.  The stealth missile has plenty of range to hit most North Korean targets.   The South Koreans also have ground launched precision missiles for use against North Korean caves and bunker complexes.
