North Korea conducted its first test launch of the Hwasong-6 missile from the Musudan-ri launch facility. Earlier reports suggested that the first test actually took place in May 1986, but these events were not confirmed. The 1990 test was reported to be a successful launch.

 The Hwasong-6 was an indigenously made version of the Soviet-made Scud-C missile and an upgrade of the Hwasong-5 (Scud-B) missile. The upgrade included an increase in the missile’s range to nearly 500 to 600 km. Low-scale production of the Hwasong-6 was believed to have started in 1989, which then went under full-scale production following missile tests in 1990 and 1991.
