“If you look closely at the photo” of the submarine in the KCNA article, said Moon, “you can see there are dents that appeared to have been caused by water pressure.”
Moon, a former commander of a South Korean Navy submarine squadron, continued, “That’s a trace that normally can’t be found on a newly built submarine, which is why I think [North Korea] got a submarine from Russia and is now trying to build a missile launching tube in it.”

The missile was launched from a submerged barge (not a submarine), but still a huge step forward.

Range of Pukguksong-3 MRBM SLBM is only 3600 km (910 km x 4). Will update when have time. See @Galactic Penguin posts on NK Defence Thread on PDF for stop gap!
