DPRK unmanned aircraft wrecked in South Korea were sent for reconnaissance

All three of the South Korean unmanned aircraft were made to the DPRK and sent to South Korea for reconnaissance. To such conclusions came a specially created US-South Korean commission. Its data was released today by the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Korea, agency Kyodo .

In late March - early April, three unmanned aerial vehicles of unknown origin were found in South Korea. A preliminary analysis of the devices made it possible to conclude that they were made in the DPRK. In addition to military installations, one of the aircraft filmed in detail the presidential residence in Seoul.

UAVs fell on the territory of South Korea near the border with the DPRK. The experts found that all the devices were programmed to return to North Korea. In addition, they were equipped with a navigation system for flying over military objects of the Republic of Korea. On the drone cameras were installed, which managed to take from the air numerous photographs of South Korean military installations.

The first drone fell north of Seoul on March 24, the second - on the South Korean island of Pennyondo, near the disputed maritime border of the Republic of Korea and the DPRK. The incident took place shortly after the DPRK's artillery exercises in the area. The drone crashed in the area of ​​the so-called Northern demarcation line - the contested demarcation line in the Yellow Sea. A third reconnaissance aircraft was spotted in Gangwon Province.

The DPRK authorities deny the involvement of their country in these incidents.
