(INTELLIHUB) — North Korea’s Hwasong-14 rocket will be able to deliver a nuclear payload to the U.S. West Coast within the next two years, missile expert John Schilling warns.

The expert, cited by ‘The Sun‘, said that the Hwasong-14 currently has a range of up to 5000 miles and is capable of hitting Hawaii or Alaska but not the U.S. mainland.

However, Schilling said with a few tweaks North Korea could increase the rockets range to 6000 miles which would allow for a strike on San Diego.

“If the Hwasong-14 is put together the way we think it is, it can probably do a bit better than that when all the bugs are worked out,” he said. “The North Koreans won’t be able to achieve this performance tomorrow, but they likely will eventually.”
