Most weapons on display in North Korea’s military parades are fake, a military expert has claimed.
Michael Pregend, a former Army intelligence officer in the US, was asked to examine pictures from a parade on April 15 in the capital, Pyongyang.
‘This was more about sending a message than being combat effective,’ he told Fox News.
Many of the guns and projectiles appear to be dummies, he said, adding even the ‘flat-face frame’ sunglasses worn by soldiers are not combat ready.
US soldiers wear wraparound ballistic eyewear to protect their eyes from shapnel and projectiles.
But he said the glasses worn by soldiers in North Korea would provide little protection.
