South Korea's Air Force on Thursday deployed air-to-ground Taurus-class missiles for the first time for combat use, which are capable of targeting and destroying North Korea's nuclear and missile facilities at a long distance, officials said. The Taurus missile mounted on F-15K fighter planes can hit key facilities in Pyongyang from the sky over Daejeon, 164 kilometers south of Seoul, they said. The missile has a range of 500 kilometers.
