North Korean fighting vehicles

By Stijn Mitzer and Joost Oliemans  

 

(Click on the equipment to get a picture of them in North Korean service)

Notes:

- If several configurations of a vehicle with one designation are known, they are added as such.

- The part within apostrophes refers to an unofficial name, such as the US DoD M-xxxx designation system (referring to the first year the system was identified).

- A year in square brackets after the designation of a vehicle refers to its perceived date of inception.

- All vehicles listed are presumed to still be in use with the Korean People's Army.

- Copying the list, or certain edited photos in the list is strictly forbidden without naming Oryx Blog as the source.
