      The Air Force successfully completed its first live-fire drill of a Taurus long-range air-to-surface cruise missile on Tuesday, a spokesman said Wednesday.

      Fired from a fighter jet over Daejeon, the Taurus is capable of striking a major North Korean command facility in Pyongyang with pinpoint accuracy.

      A Taurus missile fired from a fighter jet hits the target during a live-fire drill in Taean, South Chungcheong Province on Wednesday.

      Fired from an F-15K fighter over the West Sea near Taean, South Chungcheong Province Tuesday, a Taurus missile flew some 400 km at an altitude of 500 m.

      Then it made a sharp upturn to the height of 3,000 m before a nearly vertical drop to hit the target.
