    Thunderous sounds rocked the South-North Korean border as hundreds of artillery systems fired simultaneously in Seoul’s largest-ever artillery drills near the demarcation line on the anniversary of last year’s exchange of fire with Pyongyang.

    The exercise involved around 300 K-55 and K-9 Thunder artillery systems operated by dozens of military units which fired shells simultaneously in multiple directions right next to the 250-kilometer Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), which divides the nations by a strip that is about four kilometers wide.

    “Some 300 artillery pieces from 49 artillery battalions are planning to take part in the live-fire exercise,” the Ministry of National Defense (MND) said in a statement just ahead of the exercise. “The drill that will kick off at 5:04pm will involve the K-9 and K-55 self-propelled artillery pieces.”
