US To Conduct Minuteman III ICBM

After the tension from North Korea’s possession of illegal weaponry surfaced online, the U.S. is all set to conduct its own Minuteman III ICBM test in California’s Air Force Base.

The said test launch from California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base will involve an unarmed Minuteman III ICBM and is scheduled to take place between 12 a.m. and 6 a.m. PST. According to a statement released from Col. John Moss, 30th Space Wing commander, the purpose of the ICBM is to verify the status of America’s nuclear force and demonstrate what their free world is capable of.

“These Minuteman launches are essential to verify the status of our national nuclear force and to demonstrate our national nuclear capabilities. We are proud of our long history in partnering with the men and women of the 576th Flight Test Squadron to execute these missions for the nation.”
