North Korea is preparing multiple rocket launcher systems to target population centers in South Korea after completing a third test on Friday under the watchful eye of leader Kim Jong-un, state media said.

The system, which the country has already tested twice this year, will replace older weapons when deployed in the coming months, North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency reported.

The latest test confirmed the “advantage and destructive power” of the 240mm multiple rocket launcher and its guided shells, the news agency said.

North Korea is ramping up its weapons tests and rhetoric.

In addition to green-lighting test launches of several 600mm rocket launchers in April, Kim authorized the firing of several short-range ballistic missiles.

In March, Kim drove a new model of tank during drills, state media reported, as he pushed for greater efforts to prepare for war.

Meanwhile, the Hermit Kingdom's relations with South Korea and the United States are hostile.

Kim said last month that it was time to prepare for war as the US, Japan and South Korea held joint military exercises.

In December, North Korea reportedly fired a ballistic missile into the sea, a day after President Biden issued a stark warning about the country's use of nuclear weapons against the United States.
