BOOM! Here’s What It May Look Like If U.S. Shot Down North Korean Missile [Video]

BOOM! is the desired results when the United States sends a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile on an intercept mission. Of course, if the intercept is in outer space you will not hear it, but the visual is just as good. This is what a North Koren ballistic missile will have to deal with. 

As Written By Ryan Pickrell for the Daily Caller:

The Department of Defense has released video footage of Sunday’s test of a U.S. missile defense system.

The U.S. military conducted a test of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system Sunday. A THAAD battery located at the Pacific Spaceport Complex Alaska in Kodiak, Alaska, detected, tracked, and intercepted a medium-range ballistic missile air-launched from a U.S. Air Force C-17 over the Pacific Ocean. Sunday’s test was the second successful test of the THAAD anti-missile system this month.

The U.S. began deploying THAAD in South Korea in March after North Korea launched a salvo of Scud missiles into the East Sea/Sea of Japan. The new South Korean government, after a period of initial hesitation and concern, is requesting additional THAAD batteries as the threat from its nuclear neighbor grows.

The THAAD system in South Korea is operational and has achieved initial intercept capability……….
