SCUDs, didn't we sell those to Iraq like 20 years ago when they became obsolete?

LAWL.

But still, fire a salvo of them loaded up with chemical warheads, set for airburst (if that's possible), and they might actually do some damage.

Quote

North Korea obtained its first Scud-Bs from Egypt in 1979 or 1980. These missiles were reverse engineered, and reproduced using North Korean infrastructure, including the 125 factory at Pyongyang, a research and development institute at Sanum-dong and the Musudan-ri Launch Facility.[10] The first prototypes were completed in 1984, and designated Hwasong-5. They were exact replicas of the R-17Es obtained from Egypt. The first test flights occurred in April 1984, but the first version saw only limited production, and no operational deployment, as its purpose was only to validate the production process.

Production of the definitive version began at a slow rate in 1985. The type incorporated several minor improvements over the original Soviet design. The range was increased by 10 to 15 percent and the engine was slightly modified. It could carry High Explosive (HE), cluster, chemical, and possibly biological warheads. Throughout the production cycle, until it was phased out in favour of the Hwasong-6 in 1989, the DPRK manufacturers are thought to have carried out small enhancements, in particular to the guidance system.[10]

In 1985, Iran acquired 90 to 100 Hwasong-5 missiles from North Korea. A production line was also established in Iran, where the Hwasong-5 was produced as the Shahab-1.[10]

Why are they wasting their ordnance?

Ashrak, in your yard and neighborhood, you fire off bottle rockets. Countries launch SCUDs. Duh.

I've never shot off a bottle rocket, actually.

I would like to shoot off a SCUD though.

You ask the people in Israel if scuds are bottle rockets...

They're just unguided...that doesn't make them less explosive.

No, SCUDs are guided, albeit crudely. The problem is that the Iraqi copies are so bad or poorly maintained that they often didn't even fly straight or broke apart in midair. Our Patriot intercept missiles didn't even WORK during the first Gulf War, yet the SCUDs that were launched still didn't inflict significant damage. Most of them never even got anywhere near their targets.

They may help certain Middle Eastern groups, but I can't see them helping North Korea one bit. The only people they could launch the SCUDs at are South Korea. Given that South Korea has a steady supply of American military equipment, I don't really see them as a threat.
