The large-scale war drills staged by the world's biggest nuclear weapons state ... in the Korean Peninsula, where a nuclear war may be ignited even with a spark, can never be called 'defensive.', Korean Central News Agency, via 'Newsweek'.

North Korea's long-range artillery display is meant to reinforce perception of the nation's formidable military capabilities.

The North Korean provocations that Kim Jong Un enjoys the most, and the South Korean military is most nervous about, are ballistic-missile and long- range-multiple-rocket-launcher fire.

However, North Korea used 122 mm, 130 mm, 155 mm, [and] 220 mm field artillery and multiple rocket launchers in this drill—no large 400-plus mm multiple rocket launchers and short-range ballistic missiles.

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff are closely monitoring North Korea's military activity amid the ongoing Freedom Shield joint military exercises.

Reuters reports that this year's exercises involve twice the number of troops than previous iterations.

North Korea's artillery fire drills are demonstrations to show off their numbers, not tactical exercises.

Firing hundreds of field artillery pieces at once in a dense area only measures that they were fired.

, Kim Minseok, research fellow at the Korea Defense and Security Forum, via 'Newsweek'.

Modern artillery combat is more about firing accurately from a dispersed position, like the 'shoot and scoot' artillery tactic.
