July 12 , 2017
As per the US armed forces its controversial missile defence system named Thaad was recently tested in Pacific and it was successfully able to shoot down a target during said tests. Thaad (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) was able to stop in its tracks a simulated ballistic missile with an intermediate range. This is exactly the kind of ballistic missile that North Korea is developing. The planning for the tests had been several months back but the timing during increasing tension with North Korea regarding its weapons program has meant that the system has received a lot of attention.
