The Hwasong-7[12] (Hangul화성 7호; Hanja火星 7號; spelled Hwaseong-7 in South Korea), also known as Rodong-1 (Hangul: 로동 1호; Hanja: 蘆洞 1號) or Nodong-1 (Hangul: 노동 1호; Hanja: 蘆洞 1號), is a single-stage, mobile liquid propellant medium-range ballistic missile developed by North Korea. Developed in the mid-1980s, it is a scaled up adaptation of the Soviet SS-1, more commonly known by its NATO reporting name "Scud". Inventory is estimated to be around 200-300 missiles.[13] US Air Force Naitional Air and Space Intelligence Center estimates that as of June 2017 fewer than 100 launchers were operationally deployed.[7]
