The U.S. air force completed the deployment of a missile defense system in South Korea

The us military completed the deployment of anti-missile complex Thaad in South Korea, reports the Russian service Bi-bi-si.

Opportunities launchers and equipment anti-missile systems THAAD to intercept North Korean missiles are limited, to the review official of the Pentagon. To bring the system into full combat capability will take another few months.

The U.S. military announced the arrival of the system to South Korea in early March, the day after North Korea launched four ballistic missiles. Complex THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) can destroy ballistic missiles of short and medium-range missiles within a radius of 200 kilometers and at an altitude of 150 kilometers.

Previously, the system was placed on the Hawaii and the island of GUAM in the Pacific to prevent threats from North Korea. The decision to deploy this system in South Korea was adopted in July 2016. This led to protests from Russia, China and North Korea.
