Here's what would happen if North Korea tried to shoot down a US bomber

North Korea on Monday said it translated a tweet from President Donald Trump as an announcement of war and debilitated to shoot down US B-1B Lancer key planes regardless of the possibility that they weren't flying in its airspace — yet such an assault is simpler said than done.

The US much of the time reacts to North Korea's provocative rocket and atomic tests by flying its B-1B Lancer — a long-run, high-height, supersonic aircraft — close North Korea.

Contender planes from South Korea and Japan frequently go with the aircraft, and now and then they drop sham bombs on a training range close North Korea's fringe.

The move rankles North Korea, which does not have the air energy to make a comparative show. North Korea already talked about terminating rockets at Guam, where the US bases a considerable lot of the aircraft, and it has now examined shooting one down in worldwide airspace.

On Tuesday, South Korean media detailed that North Korea had been reshuffling its guards, maybe getting ready to follow through on its most recent danger.

In any case, the age of the nation's air guards muddles that errand.

"North Korea's air safeguards are entirely tremendous yet exceptionally dated," Omar Lamrani, a senior military expert for Stratfor, a geopolitical knowledge stage, disclosed to Business Insider.

Lamrani said North Korea had a couple of variations of more seasoned Soviet-made planes and some "knockoff" Soviet air resistances, for example, the KN-06 surface-to-air rocket battery that imitates Russia's S-300 framework.
