The new ICBM, presumably a Hwasong-16 intercontinental ballistic missile , appears to be approximately 25-26 m long and 2.5-2.9 m in diameter about 4-4.5 m longer and about 0.5 m larger in diameter than the North’s Hwasong-15 ICBM flight tested once in November 2017. Indeed, the new missile has been correctly characterized as the world’s largest mobile ICBM in part because countries with ICBMs generally seek to make their road-mobile ICBMs smaller so they can be more mobile and concealable. Nevertheless, we estimate the new missile’s launch weight at roughly 100,000-150,000 kg, compared to some 80,000 kg for the Chinese DF-41 solid-propellant, road-mobile ICBM and about 104,000 kg for the former Soviet SS-24 rail-mobile solid ICBM.
