North Korea used a tracked transporter erector launcher
(TEL) for the May 9 missile tests, while it used a wheeled TEL for the tactical guided weapon firing on May 4, the JCS said.
These missiles were delivered with between 50 and 35 transporter erector launcher
The parade also included large rockets covered by canisters in two different types of transporter erector launcher
trucks, or TELs.
They include search radar (to find and track incoming aircraft), fire control radar (to target missiles and help guide them to their targets), command module, transporter erector launcher
(TEL) unit, and missiles.
The North's weapons launched in recent months have longer ranges, lower apogees and faster maximum speeds while fired from transporter erector launchers
using solid fuel.
The S-400 carries four transporter erector launchers
(TEL) to carry and launch missiles.
Another government source said the movement of missile-carrying transporter erector launchers
was detected, apparently as part of the preparations.
The air maneuvers were prepared to simulate strikes on "mock North Korean nuclear and missile targets and transporter erector launchers
that move the North's missiles," the South Korean Air Force told Yonhap News Agency.
Several missiles were launched on Kim Jong-un's watch that use mobile transporter erector launchers
. And in January this year, the North announced that it had detonated a hydrogen bomb, though many international experts doubt this.
Truck-mounted missiles or transporter erector launchers
(TELs) can provide this missile the same capability to hide, launch, and disappear ("shoot and scoot") that modern SAM TELARs possess.
South Korea's state-run Korea Institute for Defense Analyses (KIDA) said that in line with a report submitted to the US Congress by the Pentagon, North Korea has probably accumulated up to 200 so-called transporter erector launchers
(TEL), including up to 100 for short-range Scud missiles, 50 for medium-range Nodong missiles and 50 for long-range Musudan missiles, the Yonhap news agency reported.
