@JJLiu112: Please take a look. Recent launches as well as September 2021's hypersonic launch were summarized and briefly contextualized. Henrymyman (talk) 03:59, 13 January 2022 (UTC)Reply

Second revision edit

@Henrymyman: It seems that a source is missing: a Rodong Sinmun article is referenced twice, and the article text references the Yonhap News Agency, but there seems to be no mention of them among the sources. Could you check upon that? - Xbspiro (talk) 12:51, 13 January 2022 (UTC)Reply

@Xbspiro: I added the Yonhap source. For the Rodong Sinmun article, all articles seem to be present. Henrymyman (talk) 14:50, 13 January 2022 (UTC)Reply
@Henrymyman: Thank you for the source. ON another note, when the {{under review}} template is on an article, please use the talkpage to propose changes to avoid edit conflicts, and do not edit the article itself. - Xbspiro (talk) 15:50, 13 January 2022 (UTC)Reply

@Xbspiro: I'm sorry, but I'm not sure I understand; what I understand is that you would like to know my opinion on changes that were made during the review process? I'm not sure if that understanding is correct. Henrymyman (talk) 20:45, 13 January 2022 (UTC)Reply
@Henrymyman: You have understood me. - Xbspiro (talk) 20:48, 13 January 2022 (UTC)Reply
1. A great deal of shortening was done on the article, which is necessary in the journalistic field. I do not have any issue with these sorts of 'mechanical' edits. It is hard for me to write in this style as I use the complete opposite in matter of styles in redaction jobs I hold.
2. At some point several sources were removed (by who I don't know and don't care), which placed certain quotes and attribution in a state of unverifiability. The Leif-Eric Easley quote was from an Al Jazeera article I had sourced at the start of this article's creation. The situation is the same regarding the Yonhap attribution.
3. I didn't specify in which sea the missile sunk as no article specified. From my experience it is always their East Sea (Sea of Japan) as it is larger and has less dense maritime traffic, and this would explain Japan's detection of the missile.
4. I chose to use the North's flight length as oftenmost it takes a long time for South Korea or foreign authorities to release such details. It is true not to believe the North at 100% with these sorts of things, but saying that state media released those numbers informs the reader that these numbers may be inflated to show off or raise stakes for future talks.

From the deleted comments page edit

South Korea issued a statement that claimed that North Koreas was years away from the technology they say they have. Figured that might be worthy enough to add in, —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 17:51, 13 January 2022‎

@JJLiu112: Please have a look. The third paragraph was re-written, the quote was attributed and the unnecessary source was removed. Henrymyman (talk) 03:59, 13 January 2022 (UTC)Reply
